Yesterday, Richard and I rode in the Dunblane March Hare MTB race. It’s my first official long race and I’m really glad I entered.
Sadly I had a puncture right near the end of the race but Richard was there to help me get going again.
When we rode up through the mielie (corn) fields and encountered large patches of mud, my bike got so clogged up that the back wheel wouldn’t even turn! I found a stick and tried to remove as much as I could…
Beautiful Cosmos flowers along the railway track.
I finished the 40km race and was happy to just sit and not move for a while. What an amazing experience and thank you to my hubby Richard for all his encouragement and patience:)
