This blog does what it says on the tin. It's about riding bikes, mostly in Northamptonshire. I ride road bikes and off road bikes, sometimes I go out solo, sometimes with C&DCYCLES cycling club and sometimes with my kids. I ride for for fun, fitness and because it's good for my soul. I started this blog to record 2014 as a whole year of cycling. I've loved blogging my exploits and it seems others like it too, so by popular demand I'm going to just keep going! Happy Pedaling!

C&D Cycles CC Saturday 3rd January 2015 soggy bottoms!
Why do we do it? Well because we're lycra loonies! 7 hardy souls who should know better but don't met up at the shop for a standard Saturday 30 miler. Rule #5 and #9 were in clear evidence even if I did cash in some Christmas vouchers for warmer, more waterproof (but no match for today's precipitation,) gloves. Claire planned a Pitsford loop variation and we set into the gloomy downpour. She then decided she's had enough after a few miles. So did Claire not achieve rule #5 & #9? Well in my eyes just turning up this morning, knowing only the others who'd were testosterone stuffed ride in a blizzard types, makes her a heroine. Also I wanted to go home too so I don't blame her. The rest of us completed the ride, we even got a bit of a trundle at times. None of us went back to the shop though, we all wanted to get home and get warm! I still haven't been brave enough to get in the shower, I suspect it may sting!
Here's a very short video:
ps Steve told a story about New Years Eve, a mankini and workboots. I just don't know where to fit it in!
