Microserve team Chases the Sun right across the country!
Chase the Sun is a free event organised by a small group of dedicated individuals. For the past three years they've met at sunrise on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent and raced the sun by bike across the bredth of the country to Burnham on Sea. It's a 205 mile route and this year a team of three from Microserve (Tom Lopez, Matt Sharp and myself) and our friend Chris Williams from Bristol University took on the challenge.
We had spent plenty of hours training on the roads in Wiltshire and Somerset and we had a good idea of the pace we would need to keep up through out the day. In the end we timed it to perfection arriving with just 11 minutes to spare before sunset.
It was hard work but a great experience for everyone involved and I hope we'll be able to do it again another year.
