Wish me luck!

On your bike, sunshine...

I have not been up this early on a Sunday morning since I was last out this late on a Saturday night.

I have completed a Risk Assessment and a Method Statement.  I have filled out my Equal Opportunities  Monitoring Form.  I have applied some chamois cream, and even did the face.  I've got a 4th Cat Tattoo on my leg just from getting the bike out of the front room round to the back of the house.  There really is nothing left to do but to get on the sodding bike and get out there.

Wish me luck!


  1. Come on. tell us what happened...

  2. Yep want to know how you got on.

    1. I'll be honest, I was pretty rubbish, and severely wobbly! I'm giving it another go on the road at the weekend, and currently working on 2 posts (one informative, one not so) to go up after that with full details. It's been well over 20 years (gulp - how did I get so old?!) since I've been on a bike, and never on a specific road bike, so there's a lot to get used to. I'll let you into a couple of secrets though, I MADE myself stay out on it even though I wanted to chuck the sodding thing over a wall and go home, and did a moderate amount of talking to myself while crying at 6am on a Sunday morning like a TOTAL MENTAL.
