Back into riding after 25 years off!
I feel like a 10 year old on my bike and am enjoying riding to work once or twice a week.
I've lost 14kg since getting back into cycling when I bought the Muirwoods in June 2011 to ride with my daughter. Cholesterol has dropped from 7.5 to 5.0 during that time as well.
I feel healthier now than in the last 15 years.
April 2013 - Now lost 18kg!

Oh dear. According to that I'm not really cut out for knighthood.
I can't grow hair on top of my head and hate shaving!

I'll have to look around for a chainmail jersey and knicks with solid pewter chamois :-)

We're staying up in the Myall Lakes NP as we do every October and this morning we went on my traditional family bike ride.

Lovely. We made it to the rain forest just in time for a light shower. No big deal.… Continue

I've been working up to this ride for ages - and looking forward to catching up with an old cycling buddy from my Uni days who I hadn't ridden with for around 30 years.

We got down to Torquay on Friday late afternoon. It was absolutely freezing, and raining and blowing pretty hard when we went out for dinner.

I was so glad I packed everything and bought arm warmers just the week before!

It was overcast, damp and a bit breezy a the beach for the start.…
