Le Cure 2020 Stage 4 completed. Truncated day due to the appalling weather forecast, so cut to 59.3Km and 2417 of climbing. Coming through the tunnel and seeing the Matterhorn covered in snow was amazing. Still raising money though, so if you haven’t done so, sponsor me here: #lecure20 @lecuredefrance

Le Cure 2020 Stage 3. Brutal weather, it non stop for the 6 hours 48 minutes it took me to finish. I have never felt so cold on a bike. So cold that someone had to feed me soup at lunch as I was shaking so much. All for a great cause. #lecure20 @lecuredefrance

Le Cure 2020 Stage 2. A better day than yesterday, tough climb to the Col du Grand St Bernard, and not any easier on the second climb of the day, but day 2 in the bag. Still time to sponsor me here: So far we’ve raised £130,240, but plenty of time left.

Hardest day I’ve ever had on a bike, period Still plenty of time to sponsor me at #lecure20 @lecuredefrance

So, @lecuredefrance is about to start. A quick (who am I kidding, slow) warm up ride today up the Croix de Coeur reminded me that lockdown and remote working have taken their toll. Going to be a very tough 4 days. Still plenty of time to sponsor me at #lecure20

The sunset that just keeps on giving.... #sunset #umbria #poggiofioritocountryhouse

I’m not moving.... Umbrian sunset II #nofilter #sunset #poggiofioritocountryhouse

Umbrian sunset, still relaxing by the pool, smells of the barbecue behind me. Just need a cold beer! #umbria #sunset #poggiofioritocountryhouse

Later afternoon in Umbria. Relaxing after a splendid 85km ride this AM. #nofilter #poggiofioritocountryhouse

Lago Bracciano, taken during this mornings ride.

Happy cat, or maybe a not, who knows?

Early start to Saturday’s ride. #sunrise
