Oh god, I’m suffering as only I seem to be able to. For days I have had so many seperate things that I wanted to write about that they clogged and formed a bottleneck in my fingers. Argghhh. Afflicted. Something had to be done. But what? How to decide what spews forth first? It’s so hard being this self involved, suggest you don’t take it up, stay here and listen to me garble instead….

Prioritise. First things first, in chronological order I guess the first thing is tomorrow. I chucked myself in at the deep end, tomorrow I’m going to sort of lead my first ride. I say sort of; Elaine will be there to lead me leading everyone else, bless her. I’m glad she offered because I’m scared. I did a drive through of the route she suggested today, it’s rolling but it’s a beauty. There are some challenging ups and some lovely downs, there’s some fabulous scenery and some brilliant roads, there’s also the cafe stop at Brocksbushes where they have an absolute plethora of home made cakes. I raved about this ride when Elaine the Fabulous led it a few weeks ago and I can’t wait to ride it again. I found myself driving the return journey almost unwittingly the exact same way Elaine led it. I can’t think of a better route there or back. And then, to make me feel even better Mr Holmes  (AKA Super Al) has offered his assistance too. I’m nervous but looking forward to it bigly.

The only question is with And away lost weekending it would anyone like to volunteer to take the Saturday photo?

Second thing second: The next thing is the Tyneside Vagabonds Mountain Time Trial. I’m looking forward to marshalling (wave as you pass me, mwa haha)  and very excited about baking some cakes and stuff . I’m very proud of the fellow Vags who have so bravely entered. I’m equally as proud of the Wansbeck CC members (my second club) who have entered. Better still is the entry of the Household Cyclist who is a Wansbeck member. Please give some loud support to number 37. He last rode this course in 2007 and I have some very fond memories. Now I’m a cyclist in my own right ( I think, maybe or summat. lol)  I can sort of see it from a riders point of view and it makes marshalling far more interesting.

Good luck to everyone. There had better be good cake!

Third fourth fifth sixth seventh ad infinitum well that can all wait, it was nothing hugely pressing. I hope. I’ll see some of you tomorrow, please be gentle with me.

    Awesome, hope you have fun tomorrow, although I bet you will 🙂

    Also yes, good luck to the HC, it is a rare weekend off for me and I have plans or I’d pop up and shout myself, GO 37 🙂

    Although leading rides can be scary it’s also real fun, especially when it’s a route that only you have ridden until that day.

    Don’t stress too much and enjoy it. You’ve 2 peeps there to assist if things don’t go to plan.

    I’ve led a fair few of my club’s rides and trust me, you’ll love it!
