Chairman’s Fundraising Bike Ride: Training Blog #3

Our Chairman of Trustees, Air Vice-Marshal N J E Kurth CBE FRGS is back in the saddle to raise funds for The Ulysses Trust.

Nick completed the Prudential Ride London – Surrey 100 in 2018 to help raise funds for the Trust’s Anniversary Appeal. And he’s doing it all again this year! We asked him to keep a diary of his training in the build-up to the race.

Here’s his blog #3.

“Heavy week – over 100 miles ridden on the bike.  It will be the same next week and then I will start tapering down before Ride London Surrey 100. I can think of worse places to cycle – the Chilterns are brilliant. The photo above is from the top of Ivinghoe Beacon – used recently for shooting Killing Eve, Fast and Furious and, surprisingly, a Star Wars scene! Some of you have asked about my bike computer. Whilst it can show routes (similar to a car satnav), I use it for training. Importantly, it gives me a second by second view of what my heart is doing. When I get home, I download it and my laptop provides a load of training stuff on various applications. The engineer in me enjoys turning the data into information which I can use to assist further rides. At my age, the cycling is still hard though!”

Please do consider sponsoring the Chairman’s challenge to complete the Ride London – Surrey 100 on 4 August.
