Lauren here. It’s with a heavy heart that I have decided to defer my @ridelondon place until next year. I have to be honest with myself and say that I am not ready. The longest distance I’ve ever covered in a day is 61 miles and that was two years ago. I have not committed to any kind of training regime and therefore do not want to risk injury to myself or others on the ride. I am gutted but I’ve had a lot going on this year, so dedicating my time in the saddle has been nigh on impossible. Peter, however, will still be riding. He’s riding for Mencap this year and I’ll share the details of that soon.
