The month began with a very interesting ride into Penzance one Saturday lunch time to meet Michael during his lunch break and also meet one of my Internet buddies, Kim and her new husband (they were honeymooning from Scotland). It was ace to meet her finally; they were both so lovely (I knew they would be).
March saw me re-saddling my trusty Mountain bike, Gary, for three rides and despite my pretty poor ability on technical stuff I can see a vast improvement on my overall strength and stamina. Yay! The biggest problem is though, that because of all the road riding that I have done to get me through winter I'm starting to become a "Roadie." Eek! Although I still enjoy the fun and adrenaline of riding my MTB, I (currently) much prefer the easyness of riding on tarmac. Hopefully, with more practice I'll get my mojo back and with 31.7 off road miles done this month, I look forward to more singletrack in April.
Most of the rides this month averaged over 10miles, with a few around the 15mile mark. However the longest was a 19.3mile jaunt along the coast to picturesque Mousehole where we enjoyed a pasty and a piece of homemade flapjack.
