Time for the last update of the blog before my wedding on Saturday (and hopefully honeymoon next week; ash permitting).
I haven't been riding that much due to all the last minute planning that seems to have come up and bitten our bums.
One thing I have insisted on doing is watching the classics on Eurosport and to stop the theme dying it was nice to see "the bold" Albert Timmer in a break at the Amstel and having his picture in the 'new look' procycling magazine. Go King Albert.
Last night saw a 90 minute window in the madness of trying to guess how many of our guests overseas right now would make the ceremony and if we needed to go plan B for the honeymoon, so I took the Bianchi out for a spin.
After riding the single speed to much since getting it, there was a weird feeling once out in the country and flicking the Campagnolo buttons to find a comfortable cadence and rhythm.
The wind was a north westerly of some magnitude which left me wondering how I would have coped without gearing.
By misjudging the wind direction it was 3 straight flat miles home into the teeth but I found myself in the big ring on the drops pushing hard... so the training is working.
Now for a wedding and three weeks off, hopefully on a cruise
Speak soon everyone.
