“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, and more. 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 or a very “sticky bottle.” Wait, that’s not allowed in the pro-peloton. Luckily then that doesn’t apply to me.
