Before I signed up for the London Marathon I kept going on about doing a triathlon. I think I was inspired by the Olympics and getting ahead of myself, slightly.
The 40K bike ride element of a triathlon also put me off a bit, as I am not a very confident cyclist. Research released by Barclays this week shows that I am not the only women in London who’s a little fearful of jumping on a bike. To encourage more women to pedal away the Boris bike providers have created a YouTube series aimed at women – interesting!
If you need convincing to get on a bike then watch this video:
Ok, ok, maybe it is time that I
man-up woman-up and get on my bike. And if I work hard enough I could even consider doing a triathlon next year!
Do you enjoy cycling? If you’re training for a triathlon this year I’d love to hear how you’re getting on.
