I felt tall and proud when I wheeled my new 'Boardman for Beginners' out of the bike shop today. After a quick ride around the carpark, where I failed to work out how to change gear, I wheeled it back inside, in search of the uber-cool sales assistant Adam. As he taught me how to operate my new bicycle, I tried not to notice the smirk beneath his Kings Of Leon beard. The scamp.
Anyway, gears a-go-go, I set off on what turned out to be my longest ever bike ride. 33 miles, ladies and gentlemen. Completed with unassisted gear changes. Ha! Take that, beardy.
Sorry to hear that, GM. I hope it all turns out well.
Wetsuits all round, marrows. I think they were compulsory.
Slokey - Did you notice that the 3.8k and the 1 mile swim were both won by the same guy? (45 & 19 mins). The bloody show off. Are you doing the next one in the series? Thankfully, I'll be on holiday. So I'm excused.
