British Weather

Well I have taken 3 weeks off work, to kick start my training & it's fair to say that the weather is now against me, when was the last time it snowed over Easter??

Unperturbed I have been on the indoor trainer & yes the new saddle has made no difference at all, it's still like sitting on a razor blade, which you can probably tell from the expression on my face!!

I'm seeing Alan one, of the riding partners on Friday & I am hoping we can link some days up in the next few weeks, Nikki the other rider is off to a 'spa' for a few weeks!

Keep reading & you'll soon see some pictures of Kent, The Garden of England with me in Lycra!

General Update

I am still plugging away at numerous spin classes a week & hopefully the worst of the winter is now behind us & I can start to get back to riding on the roads to work.

I send about 50 letters to various companies asking for sponsorship for clothing etc for the ride. The reply was almost deafening & I am please to announce that ONE company has helped. So the official sponsor for my ride is a cycling clothing manufacturer called Endura & I would ask all my readers to have a look at their website. (I'be just got back from a spin class where I wore my new padded shorts & they are a lot more comfortable in the trouser area!)

I am soon of work for nearly 4 weeks & I shall be doing some hard road miles in this time, so bear with me & you should soon see some pictues!!
