Last weekend I “Lived the dream” for I got paid to ride my bike !
It was my first job working for Team Sky/ British Cycling as an assistant ride leader, I think, from memory around 30 people turned up, it was a short 8 mile ride down a former railway line called the “Middlewood Way” towards Macclesfield.
It was a relaxed pace (read ULTRA Slow) and I was the only person on a road bike, but I really enjoyed it and to get home I had a nice 7 mile climb so that was a bonus.
Paul, my good friend and former work colleague (Who informed me of becoming a leader) was also assigned to this ride, so I thought , as there was a safe opportunity and all the other riders were being looked after, I’d grab a quick picture of Paul in action too.
I’m not working this weekend, due to a kids party, but lets hope there will be many more chances for me to get paid for going for a ride :-)
