I used to cycle a lot. 20 years ago! Did road sportives and everything… Two weeks ago, with no prior training, I joined the Tour de Vale 60k ride. It was hard work but fantastic at the same time, and my time was appalling but not help by the fact I was on a mountain bike.
Bitten by the bug, I have now ordered a new Cannondale CAAD8 105 road bike in red! It is arriving tomorrow, very excited, and I will post up some photos.
I have also signed up for the Marlow Red Kite Ride for the 50 mile (80k) ride. They also do 80, 100 and 126 miles rides, but that won’t be this year!
