My bicycling year start was not very impressive - I got my bike out only in the middle of May and had only 3 trainings before Tartu bicycle rally. Therefore I needed a "supportive engine" as you can see on the photo :D
BUT... A very good motivational hit came just before summer vacation period - our company decided to participate in the charity ride London-Paris. It was quite spontaneous and emotional decision - I would like to try!!!
And here I am, training as much as possible, made all preparations for the trip and getting more and more excited. I do hope these close to 1500 training kilometers I have for the moment will help me to complete 377 km ride with some very tricky ascents.
