Wiggle Dragon Ride training

 

Now, I will be the first to say I love a challenge & I do.
But what was I thinking when I said yes to the OH on this one, Wiggle Dragon Ride, in the Brecon Beacons, Wales.
Beyond scared as it looms nearer, the 8th of June 2014 is a blot on my calendar.


I have only been road cycling for about 4 years & took it up, as an activity that I could enjoy with my OH & like minded cyclists in the local club Rye & District Wheelers.
Other than the odd 10, 25 & 50 mile time trial, opps nearly forgot & a12 hour (yes,12 hours & 172 miles later) I have never taken on anything like this.
So as I finished training for the Hastings half marathon, I went straight to hill training on the bike instead of my 2 legs, not sure which I prefer.
95 miles, goodness knows how many feet I need to climb, (I can’t bring myself to read that detail) & only then will I have slayed the dragon.
Wish me luck & until the 8th, ‘keep cycling’!
