February 2009

There has been no biking since October last year, but the “Old Men” are coming out of hibernation, and hoping for another good year on bikes.

To kick off the year to a good start, we have booked a return visit to Dawn and David at Enduro Republic in Portugal for another few days riding off-road in the marvellous countryside. We are going in May, and hope to see a different landscape with the spring flowers that are abundant in the region at that time of year.

Our preparation for the holiday includes improving our fitness with regular visits to the swimming pool at the local leisure centre. Although sometimes there is too much chatting to the ladies, and not enough swimming.
