27 May. I've set myself a personal target of a mileage to reach by the end of the year. I'm not telling you what that mileage is, but I will tell you at year-end whether I've achieved it or not. Suffice it to say that as we approach the end of month five I'm spot on to hit that target. (When I started cycling again in March of last year, I swore I wouldn't do this: set targets - or even record my rides. But there you go. That's cycling for you.)
26 may. Having a choice of bikes to set out on each time may seem something of a luxury. I love my Dutch bike, but the advantage of the mountain bike is that I can come across bridleways that are new to me and know that I can just go for it.
And why not, when I'm rewarded with a vista like this?
