I had seen on Twitbook about a Soldiers Memorial in a graveyard at Slimbridge and was keen to go an see, also I had been told of a huge Poppy display in the village of Charfield which is on the way/wayback, so I plotted a route and headed off with Simon…

We made good time to Slimbridge and stopped at the Balck Shed for refreshments, we obeyed the 2 minutes silence and headed off to the churchard after 11…

The ride took us down some very scenic lanes…

We stopped at the Charfield Church…

Not a long ride, but quite thought provoking…

Weather forecast was for shite weather, at lunchtime when the forecast was for heavy rain, the sun came out!

I was not realy in a position work wise to take advantage of it 🙁

I did take the occasionaly time out through the day to do some Unicycle launches into the wild, most resulted in half a revolution then dismount, with the occasionaly two/three revolutions….and one foot tangled in wheel semi-collapes on the ground, thankfully no falling backwards 🙂

So now its just a keep at it!

After work I had a sweet fest Zwift session…

The weather in Warwick was relatively warm and dry, so I managed to get out for a quick lunchtime ride 🙂

Strava session here…

After work I had  another Unicycle session, I feel I should be moving away from tracking a wall now, but I just cant get over my fear of falling backwards!

After feeling a little (lot) dissapointed, I went to the pub with wifey…

After a drink (yes just the one pint of Cider), I summond up the (dutch) courage to have another go at riding into the wild, and by gum I did it 🙂 I even managed two complete revolutions (Small steps)

So hopefull I can now nuckle down and get on with some proper Unicycle training!

I also finished ‘The Tour According to G’, I must say I did rather enjoy the read, it was interesting to understand the internal dynamics of the Team at the Tour.
