This morning saw 4 of the group of 8, plus 2 tutors, meeting up at 9.15 am to set off on our 'Big Ride', the culmination of 10 weeks of tuition, guidance and lots of practice. I personally managed to do 37.76 miles in 3 hours 21 minutes. Not a record breaking achievement, but amazing for me. Seriously contemplating buying a new bike to make life easier for riding up hills. We all want to keep up our cycling now we have got this far and have the confidence to go out on the road so who knows where this will lead? At least it will keep me a lot fitter than I was.
We were all kept going by the thought of cake and coffee at Croombe, which some managed to change to bacon sandwiches by the time we actually arrived!!
