First proper ride

I finally started my cycling training!

It wasn't really far but it's a start. As you can see from the map below, we cycled from Brighton out to Shoreham and back. It was a lovely sunny day and my new bike was great to ride. I do have a bit of a sore bum, but we won't talk about that.

New Bike!

After doing some research, testing different models and shopping around, I finally settled on the Specialized Secteur road bike. It wasn't cheap but it will hopefully be worth it over the next few months. The Cycle2work scheme helped though!

I picked it up earlier this week and tomorrow I will be attempting my first proper bike ride. I can't wait! Fingers crossed I don't fall off...
