Nothing like a new bike to put a smile on your face.

Met up with my sister and one of her boys yesterday. Over the past year she has found a new love for cycling. He’d very recently picked up a new bike bought on the cycle to work scheme. Lovely to see them both getting into riding. I had some work down their way so popped in before going home to join them for his first ride out on the new machine. A gentle 12 mile round trip between Sandwich and Deal. It was beautiful evening. We had a good laugh.

New bike equals happy days!

My mileage has gone right down over the last month. Even after a year of riding every day the habit is quick to go once you let others things become more important than getting out there and enjoying what you do. This was a great opportunity to remind me what I’ve been missing. Felt better for it to. Thanks to them both for getting me out there.
