Went for my first cycle ride for over 3 months, had no idea how far I was going so didn’t think to pack food or another bottle… bad idea! I ended up cycling 34 miles in 37° heat, oops! Still it was awesome to get back out on two wheels and for the sake of going for a ride rather than anything else. I deliberately stopped cycling in August because I wasn’t enjoying it as much as I used to and yesterday it just felt right and I’m glad I did even with the heat. It was also the first ride using Strava and I quite like it, I was urged to join by some people at work so figured I’d give it a go. Quite like that many parts of my ride are split in to segments with leaderboards etc, a good way of making you want to go back out to increase your ranking or at least it does in my case.
So this year I took part in the Sydney2CAMberra ride. The ride fundraises for SIDS NSW and the Stillbirth Foundation two charities who do very important work in to not only in to the causes of SIDS and Stillbirth but also supporting those families who are affected. It was a fantastic ride and I met and talked to some wonderful people with very touching stories. I hope to take part again next year and raise even more money for these two amazing charities.
Spotted this on Global Cycling Network’s website. Here I was thinking that a roadie was just for riding on the road!
