It was a nice morning yesterday so i thought I’d go to work on my road bike. Now anyone that knows where I live and my rout to work will know that the first couple of streets I go up are very steep. This usually isn’t a problem.
Yesterday I approached the first junction – left leg twist, unclip, foot down whilst the car passes, thinking smugly “I’m getting the hang of these clipless pedals”. Look left, look right, look left again and push to set off, try to clip my foot back in and slip, try to put my right foot down to steady myself – “Oh shit its still clipped in……..result………TIMBERRRRRR
Yep I hit the floor quicker than Viking at a Spice Girls appreciation night !
Now my bloody foot unclips, quickly jump up and look around, none of the curtains are twitching…..I don’t think anyone noticed. Jump on my bike and cycle away with my pride intact, well almost……
Had a good run that night with Andy, the usual 6 mile coastal headtorch run, it was pouring down and after the half way turn the wind was hammering the rain into our faces, felt like hailstones ! Made us run stronger, and we finished in 48:36, no more data as I’d forgot my garmin.
Having a rest day today. Have a good weekend everyone.
