Another typical summers day, cold, windy, grey and wet.
But rain can’t stop training so I bundled up in full wet weather gear, grabbed my old road bike and headed out into the elements.
Now skinny road tyres are great for fast, straight, dry roads. I had hilly, twisty, wet and gusting side winds on the country lanes.
To say I was slightly twitchy at times is an understatement. Clutching my handle bars as if wringing out a pair of jeans my buttocks clenched the saddle for so additional stability.
Rain dripping from every vent of my helmet, vision through my Oakleys was limited and the road spray turned my socks black.
I managed to get my session completed, jacket drying out and soggy cycling kit being de-greased & whizzing around the washing machine as I type. Could do with some more Halo Sports wash ! (Hint, hint) 😉
Juneathon day 11 – one hour cycling.
Weather same here today, dammit
It’s getting annoying now, come on let’s have some sun and heat.
Good going on braving the elements on your bike. Which is the easiest tri sport for you?sports?
Swimming is my natural element and one I’m best at compared to other competitors, then hold my own on the bike, but the run is my nemesis !!
Well done – its scary cycling when the roads are so wet
