A day is a very long time.

About a year ago Graham Gregory unwittingly planted a seed in my head about attempting to ride a 24 hour time trial.  I’ve always been fascinated by the concept of pushing my body to the limits on a bike for long periods of time, but until now I’ve only dared to attempt the much shorter […]

Mercia CC 30 – 7th September 2013

Today 3 of the Fearons went medal hunting in a 30 mile time trial at Etwall.  Jack, Caroline and I are all 30 mile virgins unless you count me riding the old Westwood 30 on a tandem when I was a junior  (Incidentally the now defunct Westwood RCC from Worsley was my first ever club […]

A beautiful day for a club run with a difference.  Forty or so of us set out from the British Legion (including what I think was a record eight women: Carol, Caroline, Elaine, Penny, Fiona, Nikki, Emily and me).  We headed off in two groups towards the cobbled climb at Bollington – all went well in my […]
