Welcome to the start of my journey. Ten years after doing A’ level Sports Science and playing some form of sport every day, I found myself out of shape and getting surprised looks from my friends that I was ever athletic. During those ten years I’d tried to exercise but without much success.
In the summer of 2011 I found myself at 13 stone 10 lbs (87 kg or 192 lbs) and realised it was time to dust down the Dawes Horizon bike I’d bought back in 2005.
Through ‘Tales from the Handlebars’ I will be sharing my journey, the failures, lessons and success as I seek to become a lighter, stronger, faster cyclist.
