Well last weekend I finally got to take my new road bike out!  First a bit of practising with getting my feet in and out of those pesky toe clips, at Himley Park alongside those youngster learning to ride.  One young lad threw his bike down saying I can't do this.......I knew how he felt as I struggled to get my other foot in!

After a short practice, we set off from home on the road.  Its all quite hilly by us and I thought I wouldnt get up the first hill, but my bike was a dream and tackled it no problems.  We cycled to a local garden centre and rewarded ourselves with a cuppa, and then cycled back. 9 miles, 350ft in 50 mins not bad for a first attempt, and I stayed on....
