Back In The Saddle

With good weather forecast, both me and Adam managed to get out on our bikes today (albeit seperately).

I’m off to Corfu tomorrow for a week so I wanted to try out the new pedals and shoes. I am pleased to confirm that, in just under an hour and over the course of 11 miles, I didn’t fall off once! It was a fairly leisurely cycle, just to ease back into it, but I still had to battle a headwind coming up Addiscombe Road so I was happy with the outing.

Adam, meanwhile, has taken the French aspect of our challenge very much to heart. His couple of laps round Bushey Park punctuated by a stop for a coffee and a croissant.

I received my Rainbow Trust jersey in the week. It’s very bright (as you would expect) and I won’t be breathing out a lot!

I shall see what that looks like after the holiday!
