Road Bike Rebel

After my rest day on Friday, Saturday was my planned cycle day. I got out on my old school Raleigh bike for a hard session. I was visiting my parents down the Pembrokeshire coast so I had planned a route along the coast line, and joined some of the Wales Ironman bike route. I have definitely forgot how many hills there were by my parents home! There were 2 killer hills which nearly destroyed me!

Went I took off on my ride, I passed a group of 10 cyclist at the top of the road, I said good morning and kept my head down so they didn't look at me and think, 1 was is he doing, 2 what does he look like and 3 so they didn't feel like they had to ask me to join them.

An hour had passed with some cracking view, I wish I had brought my camera, as I got out the saddle to climb I could see over the hedges and there was the cast line, the surfing swell looking amazing, Thank god I was on the bike and not the board. In the distance I could see a group of cyclist, as they got closer I could see a bright yellow cycle helmet, I'm sure I had seen this earlier, I had it was the group I passed on the way out. The lad at the front recognised me and said "Hello Again" I reckon cyclists are more pleasant than runners as said in the past blogs runner hardly say anything to me!

I really enjoyed the ride and I cant wait for my next session on the bike!

  1. Sounded like a nice ride out, cant beat a Raleigh. I learned to ride on a Raleigh, and had a Raleigh as a vehicle to get me to and from work, in my youth, Many years ago, LOL



I've been really struggling with motivation recently, and its really effected my training. I've recently found some training partner...
