Come Sun, Rain Or Snow.........

The Saturday bike ride is stil alive and kicking as shown here in the photo below.  Five hardy juniors turned up on the coldest of days (1 degree) and five coaches. I'm sure the parents couldn't have looked at the weather forecast yesterday otherwise the children wouldn't have turned up!

The ride to Home Park was bitter so we stop and run for ten minutes to get the blood circulating then on with the ride. Seriously windy and horizontal snow met us in the exposed parklands. When we got to the house with the mirror in Home Park and the wind and the snow was battering our small group I thought "what are we doing this for?"  When coach Ian & I caught up with the top riders and coaches I was amazed to see them already doing hill reps on the bikes but I'd already made the decision to go home. The right decision. It would be really easy to say "let's call the session off" but once you start doing that it's the thin end of the wedge and easier to do next time. I'm proud of the Comet coaches as they have turned up at every session through a difficult winter but spring is just around the corner!
