I cycled to Brighton. I left really early and it took me about six hours to get there from Highgate. It was further than I'd thought - nearly 80 miles by the time I got to the beach. It was by far the furthest I'd cycled in a day. I felt great when I arrived, but when I got back to London I was feeling the miles. I had another three miles to cycle from Kings Cross back up the hill to Highgate, and for once, I really did not enjoy the climb.
