Last month Jim (my brother) and I rode the Brighton Big Dog and despite a complete lack of preparation and fitness we did pretty well considering managing a might 6 laps in the pairs category coming in 6th from last, hey we take that as a win as it was one more lap that we thought we might manage.
Yours truly on the opening lap, I am faster than I look, no really.

Despite some grumbling from legs and backs we really enjoyed the race and are thinking about doing a couple more events next year which will most likely be the Big Dog again and the 24/12 at Newnham, next time we will be in better shape.
Anyone who rides even once a month will notice the fact the weather is changing and Autumn is almost upon us, although it is not as cool as it should be you can see the leaves turning already, part of me is excited by the fact that at my favourite time of year I will be exploring a new place to ride and making a new home with Sam.
Fresh Autumn morn.
Well that is all for now, I am hoping to do an entry on my commute before thursday so fingers crossed and happy trails all.
