Thoughts of a newbie road cyclist

IMG_9147

As someone who is still very much new to cycling I think it’s pretty safe to say that I experience quite a few different emotions on a bike ride (Matt would definitely agree anyways) so here are the thoughts of a newbie road cyclist…..

8AM – This is way too early for the weekend.  

8:30AM – Coco Pops is a nutritional breakfast right?

9AM – Ok LETS DO THIS.

9:30AM – Mannn my legs hurt already.

9:45AM – Omg can we go home? I can’t do this!

10:15AM – Ok I’m kinda getting better…

10:30AM – Maybe I was being a tad overdramatic earlier….?

10:45AM – When’s cake?

11AM – THANK GOD it’s time for cake.

11:05AM – Lemon Cake or Flapjack? ARGH. Decisions.

11:10AM – YUSSSS cake.

11:30AM – Can we stay at the cafe a little longer?

11:40AM – We’ll go in 10 minutes.

11:50AM – Oh better try attempt to get back now.

12:00PM – I HATE HILLS.

12:15PM  – Another hill! Are you kidding me?

12:30PM – YAY A FLAT BIT.

12:50PM – Sooooo many people are over taking me… oops.

1PM – Oh wait, ONE more hill.

1:15PM – Oh yeah it’s all down hill from here. Woohoo!

1:30PM – Why are the traffic lights always on red?

1:45PM – Come on let’s get faster!

1:50PM – Nearly home oh yeahhhh.

2:00PM – I LOVE CYCLING.

2:15PM – Ok I need a nap.

Any of this sound similar? 🙂

  1. Haha my main thought for the past few months have been ‘how can my bum hurt so freaking much?!’ Thankfully I seem to have broken it in now! Now it’s more of a ‘who knew cycling required shoulder muscles’, ‘oh wow, my bar tape is disgustingly slippery, what’s wrong with me’ and ‘why are there so many flies and why do they all want to be in my mouth?!?’ Xx

  2. Sums it up nicely! It’s taken a long time for me to get used to road cycling, there’s been alot of physical and emotional ups and downs but I’m there now – group rides and charity rides really helped with my confidence. I’ve enjoyed reading this blog! 🙂
