Zen and the art of zoneing out . . . . . . . .

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Having just done my first MTB ride in six weeks - I did ye old faithful, on my own at a cruise (my cruise not yours!) pace in the wonderful sunshine that was Saturday this weekend I find myself asking that same question.

Why, after what I am sure was a great piece of single track, do I stop, and not remeber doing the piece of track that I have just done?

I mean, here I am at the end of it, and I know I was at the start of it, and I know I know every twist and turn, but I can't actually remember doing it THIS time?

110813 Turner Hill

Turner hill is one of my favourite tracks - always eyed off the black diamond section and really happy to start hitting it now. After a full lap, we timed a hot lap but id like to try it again on the first run! trying to knock down your own time is great fun and keeps you pushing hard

My First

At 50 I have found myself spending alot of time riding the tracks on my mtb with friends. I love attending events and so entering this race is just another step forward.

My fitness level is still quite low as I have only been riding for 4 months.

I was pleased to have finished and although I was not fast I managed to increase my skills and confidence.

Everyone was very supportive and considerate, riders, spectators and officials....I am hooked!

Ps: my first event was the 75km Kep track ride with PIHC and I finshed that too!
