Slow down

Cycling Weekly - - Letters -

Even af­ter 52 years in the sad­dle, I still ab­hor the loss of mo­men­tum brought about by things such as way­ward chil­dren, loose dogs. Like many, I have been will­ing to take risks to pre­serve speed. Is it re­ally worth it though? Does that su­per-swift com­mute or qual­ity train­ing ses­sion in any way jus­tify risk to life and limb. The an­swer has to be no and af­ter all, the ex­tra ef­fort in­volved in work­ing back up to speed is a con­tri­bu­tion to the bank of fit­ness. All I have to do now is prac­tise what I preach.
