Pondering the evolution to 'Roadie'.
I usually go out on my own, but recently a friend has shown an interest in cycling so to encourage him I invited him to come along with me on Sunday mornings. So, for the last few Sundays we've met up and gone for a fairly leisurely local ride. It struck me yesterday that not so long ago I was very much like him, pootling about on my hybrid wearing whatever. But in a few short years I've become this strange lycra clad creature that cycles up hills for fun and tries to increase distance and speed with each ride. All on a bike with tyres no wider than my thumb. I know everyone here has been there done that, but it's the first time that I'd really stopped to reflect on the way that I have 'evolved' as a cyclist.
