The day after the National Champs, whilst Tom was in Portsmouth for a track session with his coach, Charlotte and Look Mum No Hands! RT had an early morning date in Richmond Park for Round 7 of the London Women’s Cycle Racing League. Despite the 4am start, honey badgers ruled supreme and almost entirely took over the podium. (Report)
Friday the 1st of July saw both Tom and I working at CycleFit where we had a very luscious chocolate cake to celebrate Tom’s 22nd birthday, and in the evening moved the celebrations on to Look Mum No Hands! where we met up with friends and drank belgian beer before the boys gorged themselves on kebabs.
During our stay we visited a great many coffee shops. I mostly sampled the hot chocolates as I seem to struggle with caffeine, but Tom had many espressi and reveled in the variety and was generally coffee-nerdy.
