Well it's that time of year again and autumn is upon us so that means riding bikes around a school footie pitch......it's cyclocross time!
Obviously VeloCake will be fielding a team in the ever popuplar Southwest CX league. Although we've been typical slack (would you expect anything else) and missed the first round, we had good reason.
Firstly it was in Somerset, which is frickin' miles away, we might have well gone to the Scotchland CX. Secondly there have been two new two wheeled arrivals this week and i do believe they require a bicycle to walk round with which we didn't have last weekend and thirdly, we're giving the rest a head start.
So we're having a training weekend.
Next weekend we can all gather, be it with gears or without, all will be welcome to sweat and toil around the purposely designed course at Tuckingmill, next Sunday so we'll be ready to come out all guns blazing by the night time cross at the NPS races at Newnham Park. Yes, night time cross with flood lights and stuff.
So while some of Team VeloCake have been lucky enough to get new bikes, the rest of us have to make do with a new pair of tyres. (I didn't want that Yeti anyhoo).
But, we will all be ready to bring it for the rest of the season.
