Ride to the Hebburn Triathlon
Today was the Hebburn Triathlon! Fat Robbie came up for the race, and as I’d managed to get us Early o’clock starts again, we had to get up at the crack of dawn. Yawn.
Seeing as I’ve got this niggling plantar frasciitis injury, I decided to take the race nice and easy - more of an end of season fun swim-bike-run than anything serious. Yeah, right.
We cycled to the race and back, going via the Tyne foot tunnel, and setting off at 6 a.m, which is definitely my favourite time of day for cycling. No traffic, and just perfect weather for ambling along and chatting. Fat Robbie was riding his new Trek (rather swish, as it happens), and I’d opted for Trixie The Fixie. Well, if I was going to treat it as a fun event, I figured I might as well ride the bike that makes me grin like The Joker every time I ride it . . .
