Not quite on his bike but sums his day up perfectly
Not really a kid anymore : -
Kudos for racing in that. My lad couldn't be payed to race on Sunday
Well, bizarrely, he did get paid to race in that. Only three entries in the Juniors race, and he was third. Prize was a fiver. (This was his first cyclo-cross race. First bike race ever come to that.)
Will he be going back is the question? Get ready to stand in some cold fields constantly worrying whilst they arevput of sight. My lad has raced since he was 6 and loves it. Costs me a fortune mind
He absolutely loved it and will be doing more. (And I was surprised at quite how long they were out of sight for.)
Notts and Derby CX today God it was Grim
Doesn't look fun!.
Oh it wasn't but he' raced all season and desperately wants to get his hands on the ever present medal for doing so. Last round next week
Good for him!, well deserved medal next week.
We went on our first overnight trip of 2018 at the weekend. Mum was away for a girly weekend so we went on a 50 mile round trip with an overnight stop at a hotel. The trailer has been worth its weight in gold, although the weight has definitely went up since I last pulled it!
It was our daughters 6th birthday on Saturday. She wanted a new bike so had a look around and decided on the Carrera Saruna. First thing on Saturday morning she did 3.4 miles (the decimal places all add up!) and then last night before bed she rode 6.2 miles with a few decent hills on the way.

New seat today
A 6 mile country road amble to our friends house via a dense forest where we got properly lost, fell off a few times and even had a foot submerged in what must have been the last mucky puddle in the country. My two daughters told me next time, we're just sticking to the main roads!
