Wedding photography is incredibly tiring, I often wonder why as it is incredible fun! Another thing that I do which is tiring is cycling – it helps keep me fit. Last weekend I rode the Snow Roads Audax from the lovely village of Kirriemuir in the Angus Glens of North East Scotland. The course was a 300KM (185 miles) circular route going over the ski resorts of the Lecht and Glenshee but really the whole route was hilly.
About 30 people took part in the ride and my main memory of the ride are glorious sunshine, hills, magnificent scenery, hills, a suicidal GPS, hills, no traffic, hills, hunger, hills, torrential rain, hills, the highest road passes in the UK, hills, brilliant coffee stops, hills, torrential rain, hills, 80kph decent, hills.
It was a grand day out and after about 16 hours on the bike I was certainly tired – nearly as tired as a 12 hour wedding
