So, New Year's eve I got rather drunk. Falling down drunk in fact as I managed to fall/slide down the stairs. Nothing more than bruising, though I did manage to pull one of the banister posts out. Ho hum. In addition to this I made a somewhat foolish agreement with Andy to do the Dunwich Dynamo night ride in July. That's 200km road cycle during the night.

Currently I'll be honest admit to considering reneging on the drunken promise due to it already starting to stress me out and me not wanting it to start ruling my life. However, I just booked my bike in for a service (sadly not till the 15th). I guess I need to work out between now and then whether I actually have any time for training.

It sounds a very mellow ride. Surely it's not so much training as acclimitisation?

I'll need to generate some level of fitness to have a chance of completing this. Bear in mind I've not been on my bike (or done any other sort of exercise for that matter) for over 3 years now.

You have a good support network who can advise you on the best depilatory creams to use, the best lycra to wear, the best hand/eye/special occasions moisturisers and the most aerodynamic hair products to wear. Everything else is just spinning the pedals, surely?

Only do it if it's going to be fun for you. There's no point in doing something like that if its not going to provide any enjoyment for you.
