A controversial title? Not what you were thinking...
Ryan Day, who is currently studying in as a seminarian in Rome, is training for his 420 mile ride from Hull to Land's End. He said,
"Big ride yesterday - big hills in the Alban countryside around Frascati, really beautiful. Some scary descending, hitting over 60kmph at points."
But, he claims, "Cycling has been a real passion of mine for many years that was born on the East coast of Yorkshire and fostered in the North York Moors. I love Italy, but I do miss the green and pleasant land back home!"
England doesn't lose on every comparison, then... Here's some pictures from the ride.
