The new beginning


I started cycling after six months of recovery and i am very happy about it. The first four months went really quick fast. The last two months lasted longer and longer. Initially i went for local grocery shop riding 1km up and 1 km down. Then went to the starting point for bird watching. Yesterday there was a cricket tournament among our cycling chapters.

We went as a group to cheer our cricket team players. I thought even i could not go fast eventually i can catch up with the riders at the ground. However to my surprise i was able to ride with the team despite a gap of six months. Day before yesterday Individual time trial within the chapter was conducted. I could not participate due to not starting. Now after yesterdays ride, again today went to celebrate the chapters second anniversary by cake cutting at besant nagar beach.

I have to give my road bike for service and hopefully by next week i will start riding my roadie. It is a new beginning for me after surgery. The distance i rode yesterday and today put together is 65 km. These small ride helped me gain confidence to go for further rides. Tomorrow we are going to ride uphill in pallavaram hills, one of my favourite spots in the city. I am looking up to it eagerly.

  1. Sheree – Cote d'Azur – I'm a sports mad Englishwoman, now living (thank goodness) in France, who developed a passion for cycling rather late on in life. I started the blog to keep my friends and family up-to-date with my adventures on two wheels, my recipes, my travels and my wonderful life in France. The title of my blog refers to when I first started cycling with my local club. I was always at the back of the bunch, until I slid off it on the first incline! On short climbs I could always catch back up on the ascent but on long climbs......I just used to bid them farewell and continue at my own speed. My cycling’s now much improved but I still get dropped!

    Congratulations! Time off the bike is tough because it takes everyone a while to get back up to speed.
