Hello Baby, Goodbye Cycling?

Our first baby, a lovely little boy called Oscar, was born on Friday - here he is in the flesh:



We're fantastically proud and happy - as well as tired...

Obviously it's going to mean some big changes, not least of which is whether Oscar's arrival is going to mean the end of my cycling 'career'...?

Time is going to be far more constrained - and I don't suppose that 100-mile rides at the weekends will be much appreciated.

But hopefully I can keep up cycling throughout the year as well as longer rides in the summer - such as the tour I'm currently planning with my brother to Switzerland for Leukemia Research.

Suppose I'm just going to have to be smart with my 'spare' time and get up early to ride and run in the evenings too..

In the meantime, I'm looking forward to getting one of these for little Oscar and giving him the cycling bug early!

  1. Congrats on becoming a Dad. Life changes from here on in - time, money, priorities, energy. I am proof cycling can go on, although it won't be the same for a long, long time I'm sure.

    I have pretty much given up SCUBA since my girl was born (but will do it again one day). I cannot give it the time needed to do it to the level I want. Cycling is an easier option altogether but, as you realise, will need adjustments to your schedule. However, you will relish the times when you get a decent ride and, as important?, some adult time.

    But hey. Your a Dad. That's an altogether better adventure IMO.

    Good luck to all three of you.

    P.S. I'll let you know what the Santos Travel Master is like to own and ride!
