A record of my cycling trips in Britain and abroad


Return to cycling!

I’ve just spent a little over a month in Cameroon, on an Engineers Without Borders project. Cameroon isn’t a country noted for it’s cycling, and in any case I didn’t take a bike with me. As a result, I’ve just spent the longest time I can remember without sitting on a bike - longer than last year, after I broke my ankle; possibly even the longest break I’ve had since I first sat on a bike with stabilisers.

I went for a ride today, and it was good to be back in the saddle! It wasn’t far - just 10 miles or so around the local roads to get the feel of things again. After a month off I’m feeling pretty unfit!

I had a great time in Cameroon though, despite the lack of cycling; if you’re interested, I’m planning to write up a blog of my time in Cameroon here.
