So that’ll be summer then.
It was a cracking sunny pedal home via the cut, NCR 5 and the Lickey Loop for 16 miles yesterday. I couldn’t hang around too much though as I had parents evening for the Spawn of Satan at his Nursery at 1715hrs. Parents evening for 3 year old Nursery pupils, I mean, c’mon, please, what the hell is that all about? Anyway, digressing again. The cut was pretty busy as the video below shows and you have to question the awareness of some people as to what is happening around them.

As I mentioned in a post a few weeks ago I’ve been trialling a couple of IPhone apps that log your pedals, http://www.abvio.com/cyclemeter/ which is £2.99 from the I store and http://www.b-icycle.com/home.html which is £5.99 from the I store.
For the past few weeks I’ve been using cyclemeter as you can turn it on, stick the phone in your pocket and then turn the app off on arrival, then email yourself the stats. All good, it also has a few nice little functions such as route comparisons, elevation graphs and the opportunity to stick the data in a spreadsheet if you’re that anal or a serious athlete.
The b-icycle one needed the phone to be mounted on your bike as it required a very good access to the GPS signal to function, so I went and got this mount from Amazon for £14.99.
It’s not exhaustive but what do you expect for £6.00, the only downside is heavy battery usage, I doubt it would last 4 hours unlike the cyclemeter App probably would.
On to the ride itself, I came in the City Centre route with no incidents.
