As you can see from the photos I wasn’t wearing proper cycling gear. You’ll be pleased to note that a pair of super duper padded cycling shorts are currently winging their way towards Perthshire (I love wiggle.com!) My plan was just to have a bit of a meander round Stirling Uni campus to get the hang of being back on 2 wheels after a rather long time. But after 10 minutes I seemed to have remembered what to do so we went round the campus a couple of times and even went on the main road a wee bit. We ended up cycling for about an hour and a half. Hence the ouchy bits!
Starting and stopping is a bit of a problem (LOL!!) but I got the hang of changing gears and even managed up a few hills without stopping. And jeez, getting passed by cars and buses is very scary!!!
My legs are covered in scratches and bruises from the pedals, from the chain, from lifting Delilah into my car. Not very sexy when I'm trying to look like a girl in a dress and Jimmy Choos but I'm loving every minute of it. Tim left me a comment on FB that said 'You're a triathlete now' which made me cry. But I'm starting to think of myself as a triathlete. And I like it! :-) xxx
