Team Honk Relay - Take one rusty old bike.....

Team Honk 2014 blogger Relay

I am so excited to be part of this 'big thing' that the amazing Team Honk have organised for this year. Between this month and January there will be a relay of bloggers, their friends, family and anyone else that they can persuade to join in, hopping, skipping, jumping, running, cycling and swimming (along with a few other weird & wonderful modes of transport) from Lands End to John O'Groats, covering a staggering 3000 miles.

My little piece of the journey will start in Cannock on 15th February where I will pick up the baton from a fellow blogger, Emma, and take it home for the evening. I haven't figured out how I'm going to be picking it up yet but however that is I'm sure we (myself & my new mate baton) will be requiring a quick pit stop at the local before taking to our beds for the night.

On 16th February myself & Fi from Childcare Is Fun will be escorting the baton 8 miles by bicycle accompanied by a crazy bunch of friends before catching a train & travelling 110 miles cross country to Peterborough to hand it on to the next leg.

Now, I know we are only cycling 8 miles (well we are, the others have to cycle back again, hehe), but it's been a while...the state of my poor bike can prove that..

It's been extremely neglected, spending winters alone, unloved in the garden. I am now on a mission to love my bike once more, fill those deflated tyres and grease that rusty chain. Me & that bike have been together for 16 years and covered miles and miles of ground, so I'm not about to give up on it now in favour of a new shiny one (but if anyone was offering I may reconsider.... )

It's not only the bike that needs to get in shape, as I do too, but I had porridge with banana & raspberries for breakfast this morning, go me!
