I am writing this with two days left of the 2015 Rapha #festive500. For us though the challenge is over.
Before the challenge started we both had a cold. I'd hoped we'd shake it off, but if anything for both if us the cold was getting worse.
I was concerned that with weakened immune systems we might pick up something else, so made the decision that our time would be better spent regaining our good health than riding our bikes.
We're still coughing and spluttering, but I'm hopeful we'll be back on our bikes soon.
Best wishes for 2015 from us both.
