A Strange Being in Asda……..Me!!!

Maybe we should change the name of Janathon to dodgyweatherathon, waking to torrential rain and howling winds was not what I wanted to hear when I had a bike ride planned -so much for setting the alarm for 8 o clock. Thankfully come lunchtime the rain had stopped and the sun was shinning, the wind was still blowing but in the name of Janathon I was going to risk managing to stay upright. Even better, why not kill two birds with one stone – I needed to nip to Asda for some art homework supplies for Jack (these collage creations are bloody expensive !!) so why not cycle there and back, only four miles not the eight I had planned but it all counts.

The good news is my iPhone mapped my route,I managed to stay upright and even better I now look ten years younger (slight exaggeration but any less is not funny!) such was the force of the wind my eyebrows are now in my hairline. Downside, the previous nights  non-stop rain meant I was cycling through a quagmire (it was bloody brilliant -had I have been a kid I would have ‘got well done’ as my 13-year-old would say, for being so mucky!) my bike weighed twice as much when I got back, I now have half of Pugneys (local water park) stuck to my wheels.

Still it was all good fun, though I could have done without the strange looks in Asda -have they never seen a woman in cycle gear shopping before. Granted I was a bit mud splattered and left a trail of muddy footprints as I walked but I was just shopping like the rest of them, glad I didn’t have a ‘Big Shop’ to do!!

Nearly four mile cycled

The knee seems to be coping

Bring it on
