On Remembrance Sunday, I recycled my outfit from last year’s Santa Run to take part in the Ride of Respect Ring of Red. The idea was to get as many riders as possible, all dressed in red, to join the ride and encircle the M25 to turn it into a giant poppy, raising awareness and funds for ex-servicemen. Riding the fifty miles from Peterborough to join the ride was my first long ride since fitting the new Ikon 7610 shocks (£335.16), and after an hour in the saddle I wasn’t my usual stiff and aching self. I need to spend more time testing them to give a full opinion but early signs are promising. Taking part in these type of events is enjoyable, so it’s worth taking a look at our events guide and checking charity rides in your area.
