I was doing my mileage sums this morning after my pedal and it seems that during yesterday’s pedal I cleared 6,000 miles since I started this thing 17 months ago. 6,000 miles. Phew! Maybe laughably small mileage for some, but I don’t think that’s too bad for a middle aged fat bloke!
This morning’s pedal was done on my MTB commuter but I took it off road on some trails to join up the quieter roads. The trails were a bit bumpy and I did the ballistic downhill off the top of the Lickey’s into Barnt Green. You really could tell the benefits of full suspension when you ride it on a rigid bike. It was by necessity slower and a damn sight more uncomfortable. Good for upskilling your techniques though!
Beautiful morning again and it was a joy to be out pedalling. Got my excercises in on my return too. I’ve upped the reps, weights and times on the excecises now. That must mean I’m improving!
A good week’s pedalling all told. I think I’ve earned my trip to the Dodford Inn this evening!
