A sightseeing cycle round Seville included much talking, many sights and not too much cycling! Just as well given the weight of our sit up and beg bikes with baskets. Not a bit of lycra to be seen!
After many months of cold, wet, windy training rides, spring has sprung and we have enjoyed some wonderful spring cycles in our beautiful (but hilly) Gloucestershire countryside.
It’s been wonderful not to have painfully cold fingers and toes and to bask in some warm spring sunshine. We loved this 40 mile cycle along glorious Gloucestershire countryside on quiet roads. A lunch break in the Secret Garden in Tewkesbury, overlooking the river and an amble back home afterwards, stopping to enjoy the riverside en route!
Not an easy task:
The Great British springtime has thrown almost every conceivable weather our way for our training rides last week. Not quite the 20″ of snow that the Boston Cyclopaths are experiencing but enough to challenge us all. Last week we cycled in glorious sunshine, torrential rain, giant hailstones, gale force winds and in some areas there was still snow. It has been too cold for comfort but spring is springing and we are looking forward to some warmer training rides. The weather man has promised sunshine and highs of 11 degrees tomorrow so we’ll hold him to that………
