After riding my way back to fitness over the last few months, its time to find out just how fit I am. On Sunday I will be riding the Selby bike ride. Its only forty something miles, but I’m keen to see how I handle it. I’m not looking for anything flash, I’ll be happy to get round in 2 hours 40 minutes, and not feel like I am about to die. Its a nice flat course, but I suspect the wind and rain forcast for the weekend may have a say. We had a lovely week awy in the Lakes with the family over Easter. Got a few rides in with my son Ben. He’s always had a natural talent for going up hill, which we seemed to do too frequently for my liking. Everytime it went up he just got out of the saddle and was gone. Me I just did a lot of changing down through the gears. I’m please to say it may have been slow but I rode up all the hills.
