Four Month’s into Training for CFC Sportive


It’s finally the month of CFC Sportive and we’re making great progress…

This month has me complete two 50 mile rides, pushing myself to the absolute limit with large inclines and windy conditions. All without stopping for more than a few minutes at a time throughout, experiencing full body pain like never before in my 24 years and nearly passing out at one point as I forgot to eat enough! Although on race day, I can expect longer breaks to recharge every 30 miles, helping me climb to that glorious 100 miles with Paul.

Give me a follow and check out my progress on Strava!

One of our longer rides saw myself and Paul attempt a climb up West Midlands finest, Edge Hill! Paul made it to the top without stopping but even after all this training I had to stop and walk half way in disbelief. Well done to Paul for beating his Edge Hill personal best and someone almost half his age!

Let’s push for that target and make all this pain worth it!

Mine and Paul’s target is to raise £1000. £1000 can buy x2 adapted bikes or a whole heap of accessories for Cyclists Fighting Cancer and we think it’s an achievable target.

Paul worked his way up some of the Midlands’ biggest agencies, ending up as a board director and then set up Chemical Code. After over 16 years of hard graft, he’s still trying to manage the work/life balance and fit in the odd bike ride. Paul is the person to contact if you need an agency ‘who get it done’.
