In the past two years I have become very enthusiastic about bicycling.
Now I ride 5 or 6 days most weeks, covering distances of between 45 and 170 kilometres each day. I ride for pleasure, but also set myself challenges to go further and faster, and even have a couple of ambitious targets for the longer term.
Mostly I ride alone, but occasionally I ride with friends I have made through chance meetings on the road.
Now I am also competing in occasional races. These pics are from a recent 65km race where I got to compete against some of Thailand's best road cyclists. The top image illustrates my lack of experience in racing...I towed this group of riders [all much younger than me] for up to 40 km with none of them prepared to offer me a spell at the front so they were all cruising along with about 30% less effort than me. No matter...I am enjoying the challenges and the learning.
