East Coast Classic

Location: Marine Parade, Great Yarmouth, NR30 2EH

This was an amazing event, organised by Activating CIC and involving lots of willing volunteers - notably Neil Turner and his young family!

One highlight of the day was the appearance of cycling superstar, Graeme Obree. He was very perceptive and friendly, and in fact was having trouble consuming his "Obree Panini" and coffee because of all the chatting and photo opps that were going on! I shamelessly asked him for a selfie...

Here's my ride of the 110km route (including 100km or so to and from the event):
