Beer, cycling and any excuse to mix the two!

Attended a British Cycling coaching course at the weekend near Burton, Derbyshire. Once I've passed, (everything crossed!), I'll be able to show young people and inexperienced adults, how to ride a bike. Sounds like a fairly easy thing to do....but you wouldn't believe the detail you have to go into to effectively teach this kind of stuff. I have loads of sourse work to complete and a further training day to attend in April. It was an intense experience, but a fun one. I also got to visit a regional beer shrine...The Burton Bridge Brewery. O.M.G. the beer was amazing!! I tried a pint of Sovereign and Golden Delicious (and it was!)

The rest of the coaching tainees, (really nice bunch)
