Sunday Cycle to Hever Castle

Yes I went cycling! It wasn't very warm but I'd agreed to meet my friend Mandy and we were going to support our friends at the Hever Triathlon so there was no 'cop out' option.

I layered up because it's England and even though the sun is shining, it's cold. I decided to wear my trainers instead of my bike shoes. I think I'm going to wear them for a few months until I'm more confident on my bike. I am so scared of falling off, getting it by a car, you name it so I think this will help me.

I had to cycle to Mandy's which is around 7 miles. It was pretty flat and the roads were empty so it was a dream. I met Mandy and she reassured me that it wasn't a long ride and there would be 1 short hill around 200m long.

This was a lie. It was very "undulating" -cyclist code for HILLY. I was pretty pleased with my effort overall though. It was sad not being able to keep up with someone on a mountain bike but I should give Mandy credit because she is one badass cyclist!

I rode to my highest elevation to date, 516m so I was pleased! Overall, I am happy I went and proud of myself. I need to seriously step up my game though. That 90k cycle is not going to be my friend....
