Time for a little joyful event focus
I mention the old London – Paris bike ride for charity (The Big Issue) from time to time but now I have to get a bit serious and do some fundraising. The training is coming on “ish”. Today I cracked the beast that is Pier Hill, that which has defeated me a couple of time already. The trouble is, once at the summit (I am not sure of the altitude but it is but a nipple in the mammography of hills) I had to rip out the earphones blasting “now very irritating motivational dance music” like a maddened patient hooked up to life support machinery and then concentrate very hard to keep pedalling and not collapse.
What I will do when I am faced with an actual, real, never-ending hill in the heat of mid-July I do not know. Suspect strongly that weeping will be involved.
Anyway, I quickly espied a scenic vista that I thought I would share with you. Cunningly I could also stop to artfully frame said shot and my heart and lungs could have a second out from pounding and burning. This is what I managed.
Fortunately I had also had the presence of mind to take a snap when cycling in a more civilised fashion along the front.
Answers on a postcard please on either my comments or on the fundraising page below. Many thanks 🙂
