On Saturday 8th April seven Crest riders took part in The Shark, a 205km audax from Greenwich to Eastbourne and back. The team met up at 6:00 at various pick meeting points on the way to the start in Greenwich in south east London. It was chilly, but dry and the route offered stunning views across Kent and East Sussex. 

The ride is one of the toughest there is. As well as the 200km there is also around 3000m of climbing. It was a well organised audax and all for a £10 entry fee, which included food en route. 

Congratulations to Neil, Jo, Derek, Ian, Pete and Ron for completing the ride.
