Two Month’s into Training for Chemical Code CFC Sportive


We’re two months into training and it’s not been easy. Finding bigger chunks of time to get the longer sessions in has proven difficult in what’s been a busy month. Although, I am now confident with short bursts of powerful, high RPM rides with the assistance of consistent weight training to build strength for climbs when I come to longer rides. That said, the real challenge now is to get outside and face the reality of hitting those longer 20, 30, 40 milestones.

Now that summertime is back, daylight is on my side and training will be going up a few gears. My experienced riding buddy, Paul (who doubles up as my boss!) will be training with me to help achieve this. Let’s see how far I can push myself towards getting up to 60/70 miles before race day!

We’d greatly appreciate any donation for such a great cause with just 2 months until I have to #hammerthe100

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. Give me no excuse to back out!

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’.
