I now only have 4 more working days left until I am off for nearly the whole of March & the real training must begin. I am hoping to spend 3 days in Devon with our wheelman Neal, to try & taylor my training specifically to hills (which to be honest I am slow at best on) & generally get used to cycling long distances in new surroundings. I do enjoy our rides out into Kent, but you do get bored with the same routes.
My bike will be on fire by April & I am hoping to have lost a few stones & I shall be back on the bike to get to work. I am now seriously contemplating getting a new bike for this years ride, but will have to work on the soup dragon!!
I may need a new bike??
