I managed to get in 4 MTB bike rides.
I would have liked to have done more but lost 2 days having to return home for a hospital appointment.
Even so there was the problem of a very cold NE wind which in spite of brilliant sunshine held me back. As I was doing a lot of off-road climbing requiring a lot of effort and getting a bit of a sweat on, heading back in the at times the cutting wind really took the edge off cycling. I had to force myself to go for a rides.
Ann cannot ride a bike now so our lives have changed massively. I do not like leaving her at home or in the caravan.
If our friends had been able to go to Powburn with us it would have been OK but 3 days before we all were due to go, he got a phone call that his hospital opn. was the following week. He was livid having waited 6 months for it.
I shall write about my 4 bike rides over the next few weeks just for something different on the board ( it might shown just how daft I am).
