Bernie’s Blog – 19 miles!

By Clare|April 4, 2017|Uncategorized|0 comments

Bit the bullet and went for a longer ride. The shorts got an airing as I went for a spin around Falmouth and Penryn.   Mostly downhill to Falmouth from home which is great, then a little nip up past Penryn Rugby club and breezed through Penryn, along Ponsarden then up to the High Street from Greenbank. It was there that a guy decided to bump start his little van. I'm no

Real super Heroes don’t wear capes! I have been cycling to work most days at the moment and even on the windiest days I have been giving it my all.  However I hit upon a snag the other day. It was a sunny day after some rain, the roads were dry and I was wearing my usual work gear. I almost made it to work when there was an enormous

Bernie’s Blog – The Hat

By Clare|February 1, 2017|Uncategorized|0 comments

The Hat I managed a whole week of cycling to work, the weather conditions were just right.  I wear normal clothes for my commute as it is a faff to change out of the lycra. Also I cannot handle the added pressure of lycra just yet.  Lycra gives other road users an expectation of your cycling abilities; you cannot push a bike up a hill in lycra for instance.  Lycra

Week 3 Cycle Training I suppose in calling the last blog Week 2, you may have made the assumption that the blog would be weekly! My sister is very knowledgeable in recruitment and has used psychometric tests to consider personality types.  She once told me that I am not a 'completer finisher'. So finely honed are her skills that she didn't even need me to complete a test.  I probably
