Weekend round up 2nd October

Velo’s David Mackey took part in the London Revolution sportive, billed as one of the toughest one day cycle events in the UK.

Including over 2,000 metres of climbing the sportive challenges riders to conquer an entire loop around London in one day.

Setting off early Saturday morning from Lee Valley Showground, David took in the famous London landmarks before leaving the urban cityscape behind, and venturing into the green fields and testing climbs of the North Wessex Downs. Once through Windsor, it was onto the Chilterns to conquer more incredible countryside before heading back through Epping forest.

David completed the tough day out 157 miles in 10 hours 48 minutes.

Elsewhere, Keith Johnson left his bike at home and went for a run around London, completing the London Marathon in a sub 4 hour time.

Well done both!
