Only second time I have attempted to go out on bike as I really am not confident on a bike, so only happy early on a Sunday morning before everyone else is up and out in their cars. I was going to cycle round the village a couple of times approx. 8k but instead decided to venture down to the next village down a very steep hill. I went very slowly with my brake on most of the way down but I was amazed I didn't get off and just walk. I did a bit loop round and end up at the bottom of another big hill, no way I could cycle up (don't think I've ever seen anyone cycle up it ) so dismounted and walked. That was hard enough, I then cycled the rest of the way home so 10k bike ride plus walk up steep hill. Felt really proud of myself for making the effort as when I woke up this morning - very nearly stayed in bed!!!!
