Winter is turning into Spring, the little buds of blossom are peaking out of their winter shells and here and there Daffodils and primroses are adding a lovely little dash of colour to the bleakness of the winter landscape.
Added to these natural shocks of colour the bikers have also started appearing to brighten up the start of the year. Unfortunately 6 months of woolly jumpers and winter warming grub have filled out those Spandex outfits. I never thought lycra could shrink in the wash but mine has definitely got a little tight across the shoulders .
So the mission is afoot, I’m planning 1000 km of cycling and at least a dozen days of ski mountaineering between now and the 8th of May. Diet? Porridge, cabbage and carrots. If I am not devastatingly sexy by May I’ll be amazed!
