greenjersey joins London to Paris peloton

This morning I was cycling near Leatherhead on the way to Brighton when a motor cyclist pulled alongside and told me that there were three hundred cyclists coming up behind! When he then stopped the traffic on a roundabout and waved me through I realised that something was happening and a moment later the front end of a very big bunch came past.

The riders had frame and body numbers but I knew it wasn’t a race, after all I had tucked in without much trouble. We cruised along the A24 at 23mph for a few miles and just when I was dreaming of beating my record for the Harrow to Brighton trip they turned east on the A25 leaving me to return to my usual 16mph plod.
