Journal of a novice cyclist, Madien voyage.

So one of the 2012 challenges was or is to cycle more. It has long been an ambition of mine to use the car less and become lovely and fit, cycling through Devon's hills.
So thanks to MrPB who has attached Arthur's seat I am now up and cycling, we took our maiden voyage today!

Our ride took us four miles to a neighbouring village and good pub. I must admit it was hard work, not because of the extra weight rather than I am not as fit as I once was.  I have always felt being a cyclist or any kind of sporty person doesn't mean we should loose any sense of style. Although I may not look my most stylish today (it is rather cold you know) I am wearing my self stitched pin stripe trousers, and planning to make a few nice things for my new adventures.


  1. I'm doing rather a lot of cycling fantasizing right now because we have 1m of snow, and -18C. I'm also reading Anna Mustoe's books about cycling around the world. I haven't taken my bike out since I was pregnant with my first (6 years!), so it's high time I believe. Looking good!

    Rather nasty word verification: mange

  2. Good for you for getting out there, the best dressed cyclist around...Down Under the trend is to garb yourself in full clad Lycra, which doesn't suit everyone!!!!

  3. Hooray for you.. Great job.. YOu look fantastic .. and so does your traveling buddy..
