Fell off my bike for the third time – this is hopeless!
I can still feel the bruise
It was the night before my first triathlon
I had put pedal clips on my bike to cycle faster for the event
Only problem was I didn’t know how to clip my feet in
Instead of allowing my frustration to take over
I got back on the saddle and made sure the last practice clip in was a good one
I wouldn’t have managed it without the support of my friend Colin
Who joined me for the event in the Ardennes
He was a like a parent running alongside their kid as they learn to cycle for the first time
You see there is something refreshing about approaching something with a beginner’s mindset
Accepting that we don’t know everything and trusting in learning through others.
