Whose idea was that title?

“View from the Back” was my husband’s suggested title for the blog. If truth be told “View from Off the Back and Halfway Down the Hill” might be a more accurate description of my place in the peloton.

While watching races on the TV, I wondered why it seemed so difficult for some pro-riders to get back to the rest of the bunch. Well, now I know how easily half a bike length becomes 500 metres. They now have my total sympathy. It’s a lot harder than it looks, unless, of course, you’ve got a few team mates pacing you back up or giving you a bit of a push. Wait, that’s not allowed in the pro-peloton. Luckily then that doesn’t apply to me.
