Lu’vley, lu’vley Helen! What will she be wearing today? 9 times out of 10 when I go round to Helen’s she’s never quite ready and still wearing just her slip … Of course if I’m really lucky she’ll have her scooby doo onesie on which is always good for a giggle.
Thankfully today she was dressed and ready … so we set off to explore Windsor Great Park. The Great Park is fantastic for bikes – plenty of roads but with limited traffic so perfect for building confidence with gears. Speaking of which, after I have consulted our team cycling guru Vagner, I will be posting a whole section on gears! I need an answer on the correct use and no one can seem to tell me!
The waterfall is just next to Virginia Water which we cycled around (although due to photo censoring by Helen I’m afraid I can’t post! Next time.)
Helen and I managed a respectable 34k although my legs did ache a little. The downhills were fast and the uphills were slow! I laughed, Helen cursed and Siri told her ‘I don’t think that’s appropriate’! Go on – try swearing at Siri! I bet you get told off too!
Of course, little did they know that Helen and I had stopped at the Fox and Hounds, Englefield for a little antipasti and glass of wine. We can highly recommend the pub with its fantastic lunch menu and friendly staff. And what’s more – if you don’t feel like driving or cycling … You can always take your horse … They have hay racks and tethers next to the picnic tables.
So … Today … As far as girls vs boys goes – it’s a definite win to the girls as the boys didn’t even make it out the door!
Happy training everyone.
PS! Apologies to the nice man in the fluorescent yellow jacket – the lunatic that hurtled past you on a bike screaming ‘sorry – I didn’t see you there’ wasn’t me!
