On yer bike!

Over the last few weeks I’ve been keeping myself fit/sane by taking up cycling.  The last time I had a racing bike I was 14 – so it wasn’t yesterday.

 I was prompted to take it up again after my visit to Provence and seeing so many people of all ages out on the roads. It’s been great fun getting out on the bike at weekends.

Next goal – cycling up Mont Ventoux.  Now that really would be an achievement!

  1. I think that we should really consider an East Lothian Bike to Work Scheme.

    It fits in with so many aspects of CfE (particularly Health and Wellbeing) and represents and incredible deal for East Lothian Staff to buy bikes at a very cheap price. More details here if you haven’t heard of it: http://www.cyclescheme.co.uk/

    Edinburgh run the scheme as do Stirling and the NHS.

    Just a thought…

    I think we are hiring out bikes at work but I’m happy to try to promote a bike to work scheme.

    I’m hopping to do this in the spring.

    Cheers

  3. Ah Don, that looks suspiciously like the colour of Bianchi that I have always wanted. It is a gorgeous machine. Welcome to the cycling fold. The elegance and refined simple design of a good racing bike is such a delight.
