Ohh..my legs are going to be complaining - and my arse already is a bit! Since Saturdays are now football-free I thought what better way to fill the first empty Saturday with a ride out via Rivelin - Derwent Valley - Kings Tree - Hathersage - Surprise View instead of putting the bike in the car to get there. Some of you will think this is nowt but I haven't done anything like 45 miles for about 16 years so I am quite pleased with it. And the icing on the cake was an uphill scalp on the climb out of Hathersage on the way back - ok he was on an MTB whilst I was on the tourer but it being my first long ride out for so long, I reckon I'm allowed to claim it all the same! And I especially enjoyed the slightly smug feeling of zipping past the "hire a bike for the 12 mile round ride" weekenders, knowing that I'd done the hard work of getting there under my own steam too I think for my Sunday walk I shall have to avoid Jacobs Ladder or Kinder tomorrow and head out somewhere a little flatter though, my legs know they have done some work today! I think I could get used to this cycling lark - I just hope my posterior can get used to it too!
