Geoff and I cried off last night’s pub ride. The forecast wasn’t too bad but we had been finding it hard to stay upright in the wind – and when out with the horses we had had to negotiate a number of fallen trees – and the very heavy hail showers looked like they could make the evening ride less than enjoyable.
Today however was different. No wind, glimpses of blue sky and I was once again heading to Plymouth for the dentist so this was a great opportunity to cycle the 10 miles to St Germans and pick up the train there. A lovely ride although a lot slower than I would do it if I was a bit fitter but it felt good to have made a start again. Pete and I have both somehow secured a place in the Ride London 100 on 31st July and it would be nice to do it justice, if possible – so a good incentive to get the bike out two or three times a week at this stage.
Next ride will be with the girls’ group on Saturday when we hope to head out to Kit Hill.
