Ok, so not everyone’s cup of tea but the Tour of Britain cycling race has arrived. What’s interesting is that Bradley Wiggins has decided to ride on the tour. What’s even more interesting is the weather! Looking at the pictures of the 1st stage in Scotland today the riders have had to put up with an awful lot of wind! I am going to watch the Brecon Beacons stage on Thursday which will be a bit of a laugh. This stage has two ascents of Caerphilly Mountain which is, in local parlance, a bit of a bugger 🙂
I went up it today in driving rain and wind and can say its just about the toughest hill section I have done. I am also doing it before the other riders on Thursday as well. Cant wait to see the riders faces on the second climb though. Its bad enough climbing it once, let alone twice. Really looking forward to the day. Just hope the weather behaves a little bit…..
