So, Mountain Bike has a wrecked wheel due to falling down a deep pot hole.
Trusty matt black and nasty is back on the road – much faster than the iron horse (note music reference)
Back to training
Saw Mott The Hoople – Excellent
and the Pixies also excellent
Training is currently limited to a 19 mile round trip to work each day and the occasional trip to Herne Hill to look at the velodrome.
Next week, the serious hill climbing begins….
I have tried to generate some enthusiasm to encourage others but the prospect of cycling to a ski resort doesn’t seem to be hitting the spot.
Have joined an online cycle club – Club Grappa
This should aid the training
