Had my first training ride for the Bikeathon today. Absolutely loved it! Well, right up until the last 5 miles, which contained two monster hills; one leading right up to my front door! It was really cool to get out and just cycle into the countryside over in Staffordshire by where my grandma used to live. That was totally the best bit of the ride. Going along the A449 between Himley and Stourton, there were fields all around. Really enjoyed it. Next week, I need to up the distance to 30 miles in order to be ready for the Bikeathon. Hopefully, I'll be able to make it and I'll be ready for the ride.
