Help it looks like our cycling holiday just may happen this week.
All going well we should be setting off on Wednesday and back by Sunday. Bought myself another shirt for the trip (pink this time) and another cycling bag. This to put our clothes in during the trip.
I also purchased a breathing rain jacket. Personally I think these are somewhat expensive but I can see that don the road it might be preferential to my Little-Red-Riding-Hood poncho, which is great in town but not really suitable when you are trying to make speed. Besides the man n the shop made me a great deal for the jacket. He took 15 Euro off because I also purchased the bag and the top.
It is pearly blue, the alternative was bright pink Not a bad look but I was thinking this would be better longer term as well.
Truth be told I am a little nervous about this cycling trip. I have never done anything like it. If I manage to finish this trip it will be a personal achievement. Having said that the long distance cycling has been good so far and a lot more fun that I would have anticipated. Yes there are times when I am close to getting off the bike, but it helps that there are three other people there. It means you don’t want to give up too easily. On the other hand there have been times when one of the others has been tired and I was still racing and doing fast ones around the place.
All in all I think I can do it, but that is not stopping my slight anxiety on the subject.
