Knackered – With a capital N

Met the guys at the cafe this morning and sucked down a coffee before heading off on the bikes. It was a bright sunny start to the day, although brisk enough at first to warrant arm warmers and two layers on top. After an hour the temp had jumped from a single digit to a very welcome 18c. Sky was blue and trees were stunning shades of yellow, orange, red, purple and green in the sunlight. It was a hard ride on a very undulating route of 40+ miles over 2 hours and the guys were on form with attacks and sprints at every opportunity. I just tucked in on the back and gave it everything I had just to keep up! I think they felt bad about shooting off on attacks with eachother but there’s nothing wrong with being the girl at the back when you’ve got a group of fit guys clad in lycra up ahead..

Week Day Ride

Yesterday Bob and I went for a ride around Aiken. We ended up doing a 40 mile route of country roads with loooooong fast descents and looooong slow ascents. Even having lived here for several years in the past I’d never realised just how hilly Aiken is. You just don’t appreciate gradients like there are around here from the comfort of an automatic car!

The sun was shining and the breeze was a 21c warm across legs and arms – a refreshing change from the crisp and chilly early morning rides I’ve been doing lately.

We also took our cameras along – photos here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/foxsden/sets/72157625236177059/
