All the gear, no idea

So, a month after purchasing my bike, I've finally got on the damn thing. After falling over 3 times (twice indoors, luckily onto the soft landing of the bed) and once in the park, whilst practicing clipping in and out of the pedals, it was time to hit the road - which was, thank God, an awful lot easier than initially thought.

I only went round the block through New Haw and Woodham, but it's a start. I was planning on going out again tonight but it's raining, and apparently it's dangerous on wet roads so will have to give it a miss. Gutted.

Well done on perservering with the cages, Kirsty! I bought a fancy bike like yours and gave up with the cages to go back to original pedals as I just couldn't get used to them. Good luck with the rest of your training and your fundraising efforts - I look to reading your updates!
