So, the end of my first week of training for the Bikeathon. 10 weeks to go.
Took the bike out the shed and confirmed it still has the two wheels, and amazingly the tyres are still inflated.
We have a man-made lake not far from where I live so I've done (on two separate days) a lap of this. Not sure how far it is but it felt like 20-odd miles. I've bought a little cheap gizmo for my bike that records how far you cycle so the next time I'll know how far it actually is, which could be depressing.
So far no muscle aches but on both occasions I was wiped out for the evening. hmmm. a bit of work needed.
Thanks everyone who jumped in so quickly with donations, particularly the person who wishes to remain anonymous but made a pretty huge dent into my target. I’m really humbled.
