Another lovely day, blue sky and sunshine but still pretty cold. For the first time riding in the winter my feet were actually the coldest part of me. I think I am going to have to invest in some new trainers!
One of the things about living in Lincolnshire is that it has the reputation of being very flat! I must admit, most of the rides I do around where I live you could hardly call hilly. We do live near to the Wolds which have some lovely countryside as well as some pretty challenging hills. Today I decided to do a circuit which takes in a challenging hill, its not particularly steep but it is long. I did better than I thought I would, I stopped once for some traffic light and a slurp of water and then a bit further up for another water break.
It may not be the Matterhorn but it is a start! Next time I am going to try just the one stop which will probably be at the traffic lights again.
As well as enjoying cycling I am a bit of a movie buff, (or anorak as my wife might put it!). I have a very eclectic taste in movies and enjoy pretty much all genres, although I would need my arm twisting to watch a rom-com! I love the work of film maker Billy Wilder and while I had my lunch I watched some of the movie, Some Like It Hot, staring Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon and Marilyn Monroe. A classic film and it reminded me just how stunning Marilyn Monroe was, also what a great movie partnership Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon were, such excellent acting an comedy timing.
