Three women, one cause #TeamHonkRelay for Sport Relief 2014.
So the training has begun. Saturday 11 January saw my first training ride in preparation for the #TeamHonkRelay on 25 February.
48km or 30 miles may not seem like a massive number of miles but none of the Nottingham blogging relay team are particularly into their fitness and are certainly not winter sports people. Some of us haven’t been on a bike in years and just getting our nether regions used to sitting on a seat for any length of time let alone three hours is a challenge in itself.
Thankfully Saturday was sunny, bright and calling out for us to get on our saddles and brave the low temperatures. It wasn’t a long ride, only about eight miles to be honest, but it blew the cobwebs away and was great fun. I have some lovely friends who have kindly agreed to offer their support to the team and to Sport Relief as a whole by helping out with Nottingham’s leg of the relay. Honk, honk ladies! You know who you are! And I can honestly say it’s going to be brilliant cycling with you.
