Timetrialling to watch the timetrial

Set off from Margarets in Woodford Green and following the route I plotted on Darren's phone.
Stopped at South Mimms service station on the M25 for coffee. No, we didn't cycle the motorway but our route took us just behind it with a cut through in the hedge.
Stopped again on a canal for lunch at a lovely Marina and set off along the towpath. It was really rocky and unpleasant so we took to the roads and started racing along to try to get to a pub to watch Wiggins and Froome.
Cycled nearly 50 miles and am just outside Stoke Mandeville in Buckinghamshire.
The signpost said 'Buckinghamshire birthplace of the Paraolympics', which explains where the name of the second scary Olympic mascot came from.
Just enjoying a Strongbow, about five miles to Susan and Paul's and Wiggins is in the lead.
Brill.
