Poppy Ride

For some reason I’m spending a great deal of time on static bicycles – although there is not much evidence of weight loss to date.

Following on from my two most recent escapades I signed up for the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Ride parliamentary competition and – although I say it myself – finished up with a most creditable score – I even came out on the leader board just above the representative of the Democratic Unionist Party!

As the picture shows my pacemaker was a Weapons Engineer from the Royal Navy – had it been a road race she would have been out of sight after the first five minutes though.

Actually enjoyed the experience and am now in the market for an exercise bike and some training tips for the next adventure.
