What a fantastic days training, thank you so much Irene from the ever fantastic beatbike. As we rode out to Bison Hill, Irene went through the hill strategy. The first run up (oh yes there was to be more than one..?!) was steady – weight back and pulling up on the handlebars.
Vix and I had popped out the day before to give it a go, but this run was cooler, more controlled and in the saddle. The excitement as we reached the car park was just brilliant. Irene is an excellent coach, full of positivity and real advice.
Our second run up also felt good and controlled, just concentrating on the tarmac a couple of metres past my front tyre really works. This run we cycled past the car park, the feeling of reaching the brow, letting my legs spin was properly good.
Next stop Whiteleaf….
