This is the reality.
An orange bike outside a shed. Ridden by a chap seriously short in fitness riding cross for the first time sans gears. An early ride has proved that jogging is no way to produce race fitness. This is my training route, http://www.roadcyclinguk.com/event-news/rollapaluza-urban-hill-climb/5358.html I shall be weaving and panting like a dray up this for the next few weeks in an effort to gain some semblance of race day form. Onwards, my friends.
