if any of you have read any of my previous posts about depression (not riding my bike) i have been having real problems with not riding my bike (partly laziness also i must confess
recently i have been having real trouble with my sleeping patterns (have suffered with insomnia for a long time).have been sleeping 12 hours plus recently (during the day),i have recently started taking anti depressants also which have made me feel tired.
anyhoo sorry for the droning on.i haven't done much riding (have a new road bike that i got in november) and have hardly ridden it (the most i have done is 33 miles on it (very slow 33 miles too that was on xmas day.
as i woke up today at 8pm,i felt really peeved that my sleep patterns have wasted the daylight,so a thought came into my head.
"why don't i ride from devizes to bristol and back" the thought said (on the k & a canal/bath to bristol cycleway) "on my road bike
it's about 80 odd miles parp!
the idea has taken hold and it will not go (especially as the weather is lovely atm).
so 6am i will be leaving home and going on the longest ride i have done for a few years
i must say that i am really looking forward to it now.
if i do achieve the distance i will film myself riding through that long tunnel at bristol,and put it up on my youtube page as proof to myself that i did it.
apologies for the droning on,but i just wanted to write it down
