After a couple of excellent years with my Trek Remedy, I finally gave in to the ‘oooo shiny’ and bought a new bike!Read More »
In 2015 I went to the Girls at Moelfre weekend organised by Lucy Lucyslifeandbikes . So when I saw that Lucy was organising a Girls at Llangollen day I thought ‘what the hell!’ despite having heard that the runs there are really pretty hard!Read More »
I’m not very good at this blogging thing am I? Life has been moving pretty quick and I find that I’m not that keen on sitting at a computer after a day of it at work, although I have been trying – I have 5 draft posts…
With that in mind I’ve finally downloaded the blog app to my phone so I can write a bit of rubbish wherever I am!
We’re 7 days into September so there’s not masses to write about – except Mum was told on 1st Sept that she is clear of cancer! What amazing news that was! 😄
So that’s all for now, time to try and remember what I did over the last few months..
This day started with crazy singletrack roads with 23% – 13% hills and switchbacks that required 1st gear. Until today I have only used 1st gear for parking and a couple of traffic light hill starts! Cheers Satnav!Read More »
I’m a bit behind at the moment, but I’m slowly catching up!
On Sunday 17th April I was scrolling through Facebook and I saw one of those ‘how to make…’ videos that seem to be very popular at the moment. This one was for stacked brownies so I watched it and thought ‘I want to eat one of those’. Sadly of course (?!) this means actually making a whole tray. What a shame!Read More »
I’d been looking forward to this weekend as a bit of a panacea to the road riding that had taken up several weekends.
Essentially it was a weekend put on by Bikepark Wales with workshops, coaching and rides lead by Tracy Moseley. I have to admit I was a bit excited simply coz Tracy was going to be there, I’m a bit of a fan!Read More »
You might remember quite a while ago I posted that I had decided to challenge myself, by signing up for the Ronde Van Vlaanderen 129km Cyclo.
Well, that was on the 2nd April, and…. I did it!Read More »
I’m still playing catch up having been out of sorts, and as I haven’t done much riding I really got out of the habit of getting my thoughts written down, so here’s what I managed in the first three months of the year – warning, quite a long read today!Read More »
This weekend I went to a friend’s surprise baby shower, which was lovely, and good to catch up with lots of lovely ladies I haven’t seen in quite a while.
Recently I decided it was time I got back into baking – I haven’t been doing much as I have a tendency to eat all the cake (so tasty) but of course this isn’t great for my waistline!Read More »
Towards the end of last year I posted that I wasn’t doing so well.
I think I was still thinking that I could manage and maybe in a few days I would feel better.
Well sadly, although Christmas was good, I just got worse. To the point what was going on in my head was stopping me from riding my bike, and I just generally wasn’t functioning at all well. I was staying in bed until late on my days off work. I was eating rubbish. I was struggling to hold a conversation. I was miserable.Read More »
