Being the ‘Tail End Charlie’ for the Big Move charity ride has become something of a tradition for me; something to hang my hat on for long, hard season of training.  And while I didn’t exactly – *ahem* – train so hard this year I still did an awful lot to keep myself busy and active.  So that’s pretty awesome.

Usually, the Big Move is my last “fun event” before my big schedule A-event of the year (last year it was Ironman Wales, the year before it was the Cancun 70.3) but, this year it’s just another awesome opportunity to throw on the big pile ‘o fun I’ve been having thus far this year.  This will be my fourth year running being the last man to cross that Finishing line.  There should be some kind of special recognition for that achievement, shouldn’t there?

Anyway, as usual, here are the ride highlights as best as I could capture them.
