The last ( ? ) real cold snap of this winter made cycling in the Derbyshire Peaks a real challenge and having mechanical failures when out in the hills soon chills you to the core. As well as cycling , I am aiming this year to try and create a photographic record of my cycling year, a sort of story board in black and white images, and I intend to publish a few of them in this blog.
This one was taken last week as one of our riders tried to find the elusive thorn which had caused a puncture at the coldest part of the day
One of the pleasures of cycling is the cake stops where we can reminisce about favourite rides in the past, and of course EAT CAKE! To support my ride, which I am doing with my son in aid of the mental health charity Mind, we have produced a recipe booklet,
Cycling Food on the Go- Recipes for Success
We do need your support for this great cause. Thank you.
