Initially, I set up this blog to record my training and fund-raising efforts for the Livestrong Challenge in Austin, Texas, in October 2009. That proved insufficient to generate enough material, so I started blogging about my four great passions (in order): Football, Cycling, Cookery and my long-suffering and beloved Husband.
However, I quite enjoy (mild British understatement) blogging so I decided to keep it going for 2010’s cycling challenge: London to Paris, a mere 550km in 3 days at the end of June. A much more serious undertaking requiring a more disciplined approach to both training and losing those surplus kilos. So, much to the hilarity of my family, I now have my own cycling coach.
