I am sad to say (that’s a little bit worse than ‘sorry to say’) that there will be no cycling from me this weekend. No I am not a fair weather cyclist but 35 mph winds yesterday and now this today:
which is also bit too much to battle through. So I will get the turbo trainer out and do an hour’s cycling going nowhere. Boring!
I have though signed up for my first sponsored ride this year which is the delightfully named Essex Countryside ride taking place on the 17 May. I’ll be opting for the 60 mile ride. The good thing about this year’s ride is that it is a lot earlier in the season – last year it was the week before the London to Southend which meant two 60 mile rides, one a week before the other. The downside of course is that there is less time to train for it. Still I do have 3 and a half months to prepare which should be ok, even with my enforced break in training.
