On the bike

A big THANKYOU to everyone who has sponsored me so far. I can't believe I'm already over a quarter of the way towards my target. And I haven't even done any daft events yet!

It's been a pretty hectic few months what with the Freya's sudden arrival then the fun of Christmas but my mind has now turned to the dual effort of raising some reddies and getting myself into some kind of shape to trek across the desert for 7 days in 8 months time...yikes!

Speaking of which, in a few weeks time I will be able to gauge my level when I attend a training weekend in the Chilterns for which I am in desperate need of some new footwear. I was encouraged last week by the fact I managed to cycle from Harlow to Quendon with little difficulty when the trains were cancelled, a distance of about 17 miles. Hurrah, not quite as unfit as first feared!

If only I could take my mountain bike to the Serengeti!
