The training is beginning to take its toll on our man, his family and even his bike as he prepares for the 120-mile British Cyclosportive on 1 July.

Martin will capture every broken chain and tantrum in his video diary as the British Cyclosportive draws ever nearer.
And he's keen to hear from you. What do you do to keep yourself from going over the edge? How do you balance training, family life and a job?
