    Not long to go now!
    Anyone who fancies joining a cycle on the 6th July - three rides to cater to different fitness levels.
    An opportunity to have a fun day out riding and perhaps more importantly an opportunity to share and learn about blood glucose control with exercise.
    For anyone who lives locally but doesn't cycle, you may want to use the opportunity for a pleasant day out walking - and meet up with us at the Box Hill cafe. A number of the cyclists will be stopping off there on the ride sometime between 11.30am and 1pm.:)

    So back home again....great ride really enjoyed it.....perhaps next time we can start earlier :)....less traffic and then we may be able to finish the whole course....
    just to show how exercise helps sugar levels....woke up this am 7.9....naughty me tucked into the kids sweets yesterday evening....anyway 41.46km (25.9 miles) burned 982 kcal's and sugar now 4.4.....

    heres a link to the ride including my heart rate which went through the roof going up that "ruddy hill"

    Great to have you with us Brightside!
    The return journey back down into Dorking was far easier (though perhaps that had something to do with the flapjack!) We'll keep you posted as to the next event - in the meantime, keep up the great work!:)

    So I've gone and done it now! Put my name down and paid me money for two stages of the mhealth tour!

    I'm either nuts stupid or just plain crazy!
