So, I did a short ride yesterday. Easy trail and only 10km out and back home. Easy right? - NOT FOR ME. Have not cycled in any way for the past 12 years. Built up a new bike just before lockdown last year and only rode up and down the street. But then I hit the dirt yesterday. Yes I know I am unfit and overweight - I was expecting it to be tough and I am not scared of that. But what I did not expect was how uncomfortable and even scared I felt at some spots. Even the wooden bridges across some fences was a challenge - at first. But I saw that, even in that short ride, I got some confidence back and it will be OK. Even if it's going to take a long time. The only crap thing is, that I live on top of Jip de Jager, and no matter what direction I ride, I have a moerse hill to finish. So, if you see a fluffy guy next to Jip de Jager either riding slower than walking pace or pushing his bike, give me a hoot or an energy bar. I might not talk back as my lungs are trying to escape my chest. See you guys/girls out there. I will be easy to spot - I am the slowest one.
