To add some extra spice to proceedings some of us were asked to take part in three cycling challenges to reflect what was going on in France.
There was a 15 km time trial, 120 km hilly route, and 150 km flat route.
Four of us took part.
Living in different parts of the country, we were all restricted by the limitations of our own terrain. I must admit I struggled to find some flat roads.
Anyway the results are in.
I came third, it sounds better than second to last !!!!!!!!
However my sincere congratulations go out to my fellow competitors who are all biologists too.
