Epic day for Prudential 100

ride london, prudential100

Epic day in shop today fixing bikes for rider's in the Prudential ride 100. Thankfully the weather, unlike last year, was perfect. We barely saw the first riders as they sailed through early & fast, but as the day went on a steady stream began to flow through. Most common problems were broken spokes, closely followed by broken mech hangers & rear mechs. Mostly caused by other riders riding into them. Once again the food stalls on the village green were doing a thriving business & the mid day break for bacon butties was much appreciated. All the rider's seemed very good natured even when misfortune had beset them. Most entertaining visistor was Tammy from Nashville, Tennessee who told a great tale of how she was bumped into at the start & was mid fall expecting the worst when another rider grabbed hold of her shirt, pulled her up & yelled 'keep riding' which she did & managed to regain her balance without face planting. Hope everybody had a good day out & look forward to seeing you next year...
