I’ve read many times that when it comes to cycling there is no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing, whilst I concede that there is some truth in this, wind is the exception…and today is mighty windy! Wind speeds of over 100mph in the South East.
So it’s the Easter Bank Holiday Monday, and the Mechanic and I are at home, when we had hoped to be out on the bikes.
We’ve just watched this weekend’s Tour of Flanders on Eurosport. A look out the window has confirmed we will not venture out today, ( even the Mechanic says no, and he’s much hardier than me) so there’s nothing for it, but to take a leaf out of Richie Porte’s book, eat Toblerone*, and revisit my training schedule for the Italian trip.
* Only one triangle for me, as keeping refined sugar to a minimum.
