100km from Newcastle up into the hills of Northumberland and back again. Looks like there is the occasional hill, but we're not going into the Cheviots. Plan is that after not too long we will be going much further than this, but it seems a good start.
Unlike training, which has been not happening this windswept weekend. When a whole bunch of lampposts are being blown over along our usual loop, that's nature's way of telling you it's not the brightest idea to be out on the bike.
So, for these prolonged wintry moments, we bought a turbo trainer today. If you don't know what that is, it's kind of a mix of these.
