Horsing Around in St. Austell, Cornwall

Some people are born knowing how to cycle, skateboard or even horse ride. And although I wasn’t born knowing how to do the first two, I have discovered I may have been born with a gene that makes me a bit of a natural when it comes to horse riding. Ok I’ve based that on the sole fact that I didn’t fall flat on my face the first time I got on a horse but it’s a pretty good assumption by my standards.

After kayaking in the fjords, hiking the Ox mountain, and completing my first ever via ferrata in a beautiful but cold Norway, I was looking forward to some much needed R&R in Madeira. But first I faced the prospect of slumming it on the airport concourse floor at Gatwick airport.

Icy winds, blustery showers, choppy waters. Exactly what had I let myself in for? Getting out of the house for a jog on a cold autumnal day is hard enough, let alone travelling all the way to Norway on an outdoor adventure trip in what seemed like sub zero temperatures. But I was here now, right in the middle of the Norwegian Fjords, in my dive suit, strapped in my kayak, rocking side to side thanks to the stormy weather, and there was no way out.

I’ve been meaning to get back on my bike for over a year now but have never got around to buying a new one after mine was stolen. I mean, it’s not as if I don’t keep fit in other ways – weight lifting, running, body combat – to name but a few exercises I engage in on a daily basis. But when I was invited to the luxurious La Manga club on a cycling trip, as well as road test a new bike, I thought it was high time I got back into the saddle.
