Cycling around Ladybower Dam, originally uploaded by Soyy.

I ditched my mountain bike 11 years ago.

Today, I thought I wouldn't be able to pedal anymore. I practised on my 5-year-old's bike but it wouldn't move a jot. I thought, oh maybe, the wheels are just too tiny for my size. I was told, no, 'you're just fat' and that I should get my arse off it and get real. I don't think I'm fat. I'm just oozing with sexuality - not lard!

So I decided to 'get real' and donned a broken helmet and walking boots, in case I'd end up walking with my bike around 15 miles of cycle path. The pod for the boys was attached to husband's bike.

I managed to keep the handle bars together without falling off and took 173 photos of husband on his bike. Imagine. He took 2 shots of me to prove to his parents that I'm really fat, I mean fit.

We were warned of the impending rain and we were continually watching out for the ominous clouds. It turned out that we had to race against the rain and as soon as we reached the car park 3 hours later, the heavens collapsed on us. Perfect!

" I'm just oozing with sexuality - not lard!"

----- great Soy, maybe I can copy this too, for I lack some originality when it comes to humor :( Anyway, I too believe that I am oozing with sexuality and not lard. and my husband could not answer yes or no, he just keeps quiet, afraid to answer :)

you're like me and my hubby too, i take so many shots of him, but he takes very few shots of me :(

nice picture by the way, i just like how everything blends in. at least, you know how to bike, i don't :(

I gave up riding a bike, but I love riding my grandson's razor scooter. It is great fun. I love your picture. The scenery is beautiful.
