We did our first ride today!!!!!! The rain season officially starts on 01 June. yesterday was the 2nd of June and true to form the heavens REALLLLYYY opened. This morning it was still cloudy but we drove about 15km out of town past Ajah on the Lekki Epe Express. Virtually no traffic and we set off. Three Saffas and two Australian Americans!!!!! About three km out the rain came down in buckets.... a real tropical squall. I have never seen anything like this. We were soaked in second and sought refuge at a buss stop. It seemed as if there was a living being inside my cycling shoes....we were wet wet wet!!!!!. We then cycled on the tarred roads of a future housing estate and then went back to where we parked. The road was flooded and you cannot see the potholes. We did 13,2 km but HOW GLORIOUS,,,, my bum was on a bike seat again!!!!! We lost a lot ..... a great lot of our fittness and a lot of work lies ahead..... but be warned The Big H and the Mighty M is aiming to rise to great heights again..... we will get fit and race properly again!!!!!!!

 

We finished our cylce in real cycling style. We went to Chocolate Royal and each had a chocolate doughnut and a mango smoothie!!!!!!

Apparently good. Us Saffas did nothing .... we had to stay in our hotel as they were "no movement" days.
