17 laps on the bike done and NIck is making steady progress.
As dusk fell the bike lights had to go on the bike and the high-visability jacket regulations came into force.
Nick’s knee is troublesome and we are just about keeping it under control with nurafen gel and painkillers. He also has sore feet and various other niggles but is driving on.
He has moved up another few places, and after 15 laps was lying in 8th place.
3 more bike laps to go and then it’s 48 laps of the 1.1 mile circuit to complete the 52 miles run
