A new beginning

So you followed me here...great stuff! I hope my previous blog at was an inspiration to you. If I can do it - a semi-fit working mum of 43 then surely you can do it too!

If you haven't found me via my previous blog, welcome and I hope you will enjoy the bits and bobs that I have to share.

The new story starts here...

Having written my Land's End to John O'Groats journey which followed me through the challenges of getting fit (both physically and mentally) and then the Big Bike ride with daily updates, it seems like an obvious continuation that a new blog had to be written. One that is a bit general and not so much focussed on one challenge. I guess I will be reminiscing a bit about the Big Bike ride (that is inevitable!)but then other adventures will follow which will hopefully live up to expectations.

I felt a big void after completing the Big Bike ride. I had withdrawal symptoms for quite a few weeks and even now tries to go out on my bike as many times as I'm able to. I organise impromptu bike rides with friends just to get out and about which is mostly on Saturdays or Sundays.

We have some cycling planned for the coming week as we are off to Brittany, France for a week and the bikes will be travelling with us. A couple of routes have been plotted on a mapping website but it remains to be seen if we do them. We might find different routes that is far more interesting and exciting!

Thanks for reading and happy cycling!
