Ooh-cha, it's been while and for good reason, home life is pretty busy at the moment. I say home life, it's more football home life. My weekend mornings are being dominated by Spartans training with Henry, I also coach on Monday nights with the P4/5 girls and the Blackhall P2s on Tuesdays. Wednesday night is my club ride night, leaving Thursday and Friday free. Anyways, this week and weekend are the last training days before the kids break up for the summer holidays, so I'm looking forward for a bit of time returning.
So, I plan cycling a bit more during the summer holidays, solo and with the family. Henry has finally clicked with his bike and wants to cycle more, so I would like to take everyone to Glentress to cycle some of the forest tracks down there.
Staying on the cycling subject, the pic across is of the 1st Blackhall Bike Bus. We didn't think that we'd get that many folk, but about 100 bikes took to the streets for a mass ride to school. It was quite a sight, the photo doesn't do it justice. We may have to get a police escort next time round. Thankfully there were only a couple of idiots drivers who were SO important that adding 1 minute to their journey was enough to justify putting peoples lives in danger. Can't wait for the next one.
