Here is the second set of pictures from Naseby of me on my vintage bike.
There are a few lessons I learnt that day:
1) Don't wear a long-ish dress while cycling. It means you need to pull it up right past your knees so you can cycle comfortably and the person taking the photos needs to make sure they don't take, ahem, inappropriate ones.
2) Wear proper shoes.
3) Understand whether your bike is a road bike or a mountain bike. I discovered that mine is a road bike, and even cycling along the race was a smidge difficult because of all the stones and holes I had to avoid. Unfortunately, one such hole jumped out at me and got me which meant I toppled off my bike and nearly tumbled down the side of a slope before I caught myself. The dress and the bike were unharmed, my stockings, however, were unable to be saved.
And for those of you wondering - why, yes I am a safety concious rider. Helmets on stat!
