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.
