Losing it

For a few years now, I’ve had used a red cyclocross bike for winter training. It’s known as my cross bike to distinguish it from my beautiful red bike. The other reason that it’s been cross all this time is that the muddiest place I’ve previously taken it is the towpath, instead of proper mucky lumpy stuff. But, this year I decided to extend my comfort zone, and part one of this was taking the cross bike to do a bit of mountain bike orienteering.

Huge amount of fun, and didn’t fall off (well only a bit, on a sort of slo-mo steep muddy downhill where my front wheel ground to a halt in the deepest bit and the rest of me was too excited to stop).  I got lost on the way to the event, and on the way back too, but for the rest of the time a home-made mapboard and a sense of adventure saw me right.

Roll on cyclocross…
