Back then I used twitter to record my ride and subsequently made a <a href="https://vimeo.com/44577637">short film</a> documenting my suffering. This time around it would be equally hard, the course was longer, hiller and the weather challenging but better preparation, mentally and physically helped me over the finish line with time in hand. I shot some photos along the way and they make up content for this short video below.
Many thanks to the LEL 2017 volunteers who make this event so special for the riders, and especially those that helped get me back on the road after a major mechanical failure. Commiserations to those who didn't quite make it, only four more years to the next one, surely the weather will have improved by then.
