Wednesday night Andy decided to enter himself into a cycling race. In Lincoln. 2+ hours away…. I said, Ok, whatever! We decided that we needed to all go, since it was his first one! So, up we got at 4:30ish to leave as close to 5 as we could! Plopped the boys in the car in their PJs and away we went. We got to Lincoln about 7:30, Andy changed and then left to the registration. We met him there, and waited and waited. The line was super long as one of the computers decided to not work! Eventually he finished and was ready to go. The racers could start anywhere between 8 and 9, so it wasn’t a standard race, just went by time and for Andy it was just to see what he could do! The course was 55miles (and another was 96m) so we figured on just over 3 hours, which is what he has done 50m in a few weeks ago. So the boys and I set off to walk into Lincoln and window shop. It was fun. Its a beautiful city built on a steep hill. It had a castle, a cathedral and lovely old buildings and boutique shops and tea rooms! What we didn’t count on was a puncture that wasn’t easily fixed, having to borrow an inner tube from another cyclist. Nearly an hour wait all in all. =( But that’s ok!! Here is our day in pictures. Enjoy!
