This year has been a bit poo...knee injury in December has meant 7 months of no biking at all and now a very slow return as the knee heals. The result was a lazy beer and food filled few months resulting in stone plus weight gain. A few other things along the way means I need to press the restart button.
So, to give me some motivation I need a goal, a challenge, something to set my sights on and train for. I havent done any events in the past (been riding 4 years now), so I was wondering what the singletrack peps could come up with.
In my armoury I have:
- Trek 2.1 road bike
- A blinged up Rockhopper
- Nicolai Hellius CC
I can swim (of sorts), I have a gym and swimming pool I can train in over the winter. Running is pretty much a no go as my knees wont stand it, though I do fancy doing a Rat Race next year for something a bit different. Also on the list for next year is a bivi weekend.
So give me some ideas. Something May/June/July would be good so I am fit for our planned trip to the alps at the end of August. And before anyone suggests a 24 hour solo - no, I need some sleep!
If it helps, I am based in NE England, but happy to travel.
