Yesterday, the hottest day of the year, James and I cycled to Nailsworth and climbed the ‘W’ (or the Ladder, if you prefer).
Afterwards I visited my parents for dinner and to clear out my old bedroom. Look what I found…
So, it seems that I have been proficient at cycling for 17 years, which suggests that I have been a novice for quite a long time. I think I must be one of the most proficient novices going.
There was also this little badge…
I wonder whether it is a pre-requisite of the ride?! …Maybe I should wear it, I wouldn’t want to be turned away at the start after all of this training.
Either way, it’s reassuring to know that I am a competent cyclist.
