Lily’s first Cyclocross of 2009

We just had a lovely weekend – a very deliberate effot to stay away from exercise for me after the intense and selfish build-up to the Theww Peaks last weekend – and a weekend of just hanging out at home and doing simple things with the children was always going to be rewarding. But we could only stay away from bike races for one day – it was Lily’s turn to race and mine to watch…

Lily – along with the other 40 under 12s – rode her heart out today for 20 minutes in lovely autumn weather at Leverhulme Park in Bolton – and two very proud parents watched her battle it out ‘on her own’ for the first time (i.e. without me running along behind – like last season!)
