I had an idea that I might like to do a little cross racing this year. I'm not sure that I can fit it in after all, but I did do some late summer races on my mountain bike.
My first race was at Bethlem Hospital. I was slow but the happiest competitor on the couse. Probably. I came third and won a pear.
I also raced at Herne Hill, a technical circuit which might have been better attempted on a cyclocross bike. I came fourth and somebody gave me a peach. Happiness is free fruit.
