Actually I have merely joined a social cycling group, organised by Sky and British Cycling. Called SkyRide, it's a wonderful motivator. There are women-only rides called Breeze, or there are mixed group rides. There are rides suitable for all levels, from Steady to Challenging.
Actually, my Steady ride was a pretty challenging one. This is because:
- I'm rubbish
- I hate downhills
- I don't like bleeding
- I've got no sense of direction
- I can't balance
- What are gears?
- I live a long way from places that cyclists normally drive to first.
I had a wobbly moment when I got cocky and tried to drink and ride at the same time. I nearly did a Froome and crash into someone - at a bus stop. But 19 miles isn't shabby at all.
Plus I found an almost whole loom band, got a free hi-vis jacket, and didn't die.
