Just reminiscing over the past year and thought I would send some of my cycling highlights from 2018 that I’m feeling proud of:
Completed my first sportive: IoW randonee
Completed my longest ever ride: 89miles
Yearly mileage (3383miles) was more than 4x previous best
For a period of approx 12h in Oct, I topped the leaderboards of all 3 strava clubs that I’m a member of 😀
Graduated from taking part in WCC green rides, to leading green rides, to hanging onto the back of a blue ride, to leading blue rides!
Looking forward to plenty more miles in 2019…..
…when your sportive is cancelled what do you do? You chat with some of your cycling club friends and create your own century ride no matter what the weather.
On Saturday 22 September 2018, four of us (Pob, Ewa, Mick and Susie) met up whilst most of you were sleeping! The 100 mile ride was route planned by Ewa (or maybe Doug to be honest!!!) taking us on traffic free roads. Delighted to say the first 4 hours were dry. Only one puncture (Sue) and shocked to hear that Doug normally fixes everything wrong with Ewa’s bike…the boys were incredibly patient with us!!!
Coffee and tea cakes refuelled us and then we headed back to Wokingham. We each celebrated with Chinese take away (Pob and Susie) or sit in (Ewa)…to refuel those calories burnt.
