The BAD news : Sunday's race has been cancelled!!
The GOOD news:
My hero - hubby - stepped in as I was not at home or near a computer and checked the website where the races are listed and discovered another one taking place on Sunday - a teeny bit further from home but doable. It is also a 40km (24.85 miles) cycle race. It is for a charity organisation : Meals on Wheels - and thankfully they are taking late entries on the day. It is a later start than the other one which means we might end up missing Josh's school's Spring Fair entirely - I'll just have to pedal faster :-))
I have no idea what the route is like : all I have to go on is what Tannie (Aunty) Bettie told me on the phone this afternoon - it's fast with one very long uphill drag. Should be interesting if anything.
