I don't know if I've mentioned this yet, but I cycled across the country in two days last week and it was a great chance to get back in the saddle to lead tonight's bike-themed Group Run with Recyke Y Bike.

Hazel and I both cycled to the task tonight while the runners took on the short sharp hills to Recyke. It was great to have Melvyn along for his first ever group run. Kudos!

Recyke Y Bike is an amazing space and a home to hundreds of donated bikes waiting for repairs and new homes. The staff have been out and about in the community in the last few weeks, repairing childrens' bikes and making them safe.

Super task owner Sara met us with two organisation tasks for this evening: sorting and organising inner tubes (Seb and Aimee's job for the night!) and ruthlessly sorting through donated bike accessories, a job for Hazel and Melvyn to get stuck into.

Seb commented that without doubt, Team Sky will have the same procedure with their cyclists of "make a pile of big ones then arrange them from big to small ones". Top technical skills Seb!

A run back to the start in glorious evening sunshine followed before a great stretch off and a great quayside photo. Job done!

We are back at Ouseburn Trust for our group run next week. See you then!
