I guess what really prompted me to be a little bit more serious was when I had surgery about ten/twelve years ago and I wanted to regain my health and my fitness so I started cycling.

I joined a cycling group and I built it up and over several years I managed to do the Ride for Hope. It was my goal to do the whole one hundred miles which I managed to do about the

When did you start exercising?

Early November always marks the time we 'fall backward' and 'loose' an hour of daylight. What does that mean to us? As boaters, it means we have to plan ahead and leave early as darkness comes sooner than usual and we don't want to be caught out coming home from boating in the dusk! It usually works out though as the children in the household show no regard for the change of time and are up at the crack dawn!
