Hills Killer 2012

Signed up to the Hills Killer event on the Isle of Wight tonight. This will be the Seventh year I've entered, never very fast but always enjoy riding it with Terence. We were considering doing the long version of the ride - fourteen hills but settled fo rthe usual Seven. After a disasterous South Downs this year and a disasterous Tipton to Thatcham I'm not sure me and cycling are meant to continue. Don't get me wrong I still enjoy it and love going out. I just don't seem to be able to get fit enough to what I need. I have something to blame, in my mind I'm telling myself it's my meds and heart issues that have happened recently. I've had two cardioversions since December and new meds to keep my heart rythm. After each one I kept off the bike for about a month, the new meds are making me tired. So... With all this going on I'm sitting here typing this thinking I'm a right LameAss, blaming my poor fitness on all this. Reality is probably the fact I do…

Greenham Sky

If you look close you can see the alien spacecraft that land there. But sshhhh, don't tell anyone because they won't believe you - will they Michelle? There are a few strange buildings in the woods, stairs going into the ground. What's down there? I wonder :-)
