On Monday, I completed my first MTB race. It was a ladies only race at the Modderfontein park. My bestie and I entered the 10km race. For someone who has only been cycling since June, I thought this would be appropriate.
Note: this was a route of pure awesome and pure hell. Brimstone in the shape of uphills included.
We finished the race at 15th and 16th place, and roughly 1H07MINS. Not bad for a first try, right? Yes, I did walk some of the uphills. And yes, I swore like a sailor most of the way. And YES I know that wastes energy.

Hoping I didn’t shame Complete Cyclist too much 😛 but a really starting to enjoy cycling. Even though my butt hurts so bad… any advice on that?! (Yes, I have padded broeks). And I have noticed that I clutch my handles too tight. I need to work on that.
Either way, onto new journeys. I’m excited. And no, I won’t do the Cape Epic.
