Photo shoot at Peterborough Greyhound Stadium

We went to the Peterborough Greyhound Stadium, to do some photos for the Peterborough Evening Telegraph. The news article should be in the ET on Friday (7th Aug 2009). It should also be on there website at www.peterboroughtoday.co.uk.

While their we also did some telephone interviews with Lite FM and Peterborough’s Heart FM but we’re not too sure when they will get aired.

Also we would like to say a very, big thanks again to the Peterborough Greyhound Stadium for sponsoring us.

Peterborough Greyhound Stadium cycling jerseys

A quick update on the Peterborough Greyhound Stadium cycling jerseys, we have been giving a postal date of Monday 3rd August. Should get them 2-3 business days later. So means will be get them on the Thursday or the Friday. We really hope the Thursday, since we’re driving up to John O’Groats on Fri 7th August.

It’s not going to leave us much time at all to do PR work with the Peterborough Greyhound Stadium.

Our first long training cycle

We did our first long training cycle, to get ourselves ready for doing the End to End cycle next year.

We did a 58 mile cycle. The cycle took us from Mike’s house. In the Orton Malborne, area of Peterborough. To a village called, Swavesey, which is near to Cambridge. The cycle took us 4 hours, 43 minutes and 40 seconds. With an average speed of 12.4 mph. Going by the Cateye CC-CD300DW cycling computer on Gordon’s bike.

First of many planning meetings

We went to the Peterborough service station. To have a McDonalds. While there, we both made a start, on planning the cycle route between John O’Groats to Lands End.

We also made a quick list, of some of the things. We’re need for doing the cycle. The things, so far include:-

  • 1st aid kit
  • 3 lots of cycling clothes each
  • Bike repair kit
  • Bike locks
  • Bike lights
  • Footware – for both cycling and off bike use
  • Gloves and hats
