Team LondonCarol Boston I'm very aware of the need to balance training and injury prevention!As the oldest female taking part in this challenge and a relatively recent convert to cycling (my knees won't hold me up running!) I'm very aware of the need to balance training and injury prevention! Following the tragic death of a friend in 2014 whose family were supported by BBC Children in Need it was a natural fit. I'd love to inspire others especially women to give cycling a go and am really pleased to to see some join both the London and wider teams, it really is 'never too late'! The toughest training ride I've done so far must be from Nidri to Englouvi on Lefkas (in over 100 degrees!) Being on holiday on a boat on the run up to the event is a real worry as training has suffered but I'm delighted funds have been added while I've been away and enjoyed seeing others in the London team working hard to reach their fundraising totals before we head off.
