Just a few happy words from me.
I've been a born again cyclist since just under two years ago when I got a hybrid to commute and have fun on. I lost a couple of stone inside a few weeks and generally became healthier. And I was having fun.
A mate at work kept trying to persuade me to get a mountainbike but I didn't really see the benefit for me even on the mixed surface 12.5 mile commute I do.
Finally at Easter I gave in and Paul's Cycles delivered me a full susser at 8am on Good Friday. Since that day I've found it almost impossible to want to ride the hybrid for anything other than a blast down town to the shops.
All good and I was fully into my blasting along and up and down the Ridgeway.
Now I'm all blown away again after two consecutive Thursdays at Swinley Forest.
How fun is that? It's free, has good facilities and mid week isn't too crowded.
I am totally amazed that this was done and is so well maintained. It's like I've discovered riding all over again and all I do now is plan when I can get over there next. I move into Didcot soon so a quick train trip and I'm there without a 12 mile ride in and out.
Like I said way back at the start of this, just some happy words.
