Yesterday I rode my road bike for a while…well, for 8hrs, and felt good all day. Didn’t feel tired afterwards and feel fine now. Yay. I might just be getting fitter!
I battered all the hills into submission, then hammered the flat sections…then battered some more hills into submission, just cos i could
If anything, i was riding faster, smoother and more comfortably towards the end than during the first four hours, i seemed to get into a nice fast rhythm and was secretly hoping that someone would stop me before i got home and tell me i had to take a 50 mile diversion, just so i could ride for longer!
Took the scandal out on sunday round the 3 towers route, but snapped a spoke before i got to peel tower, so just turned round and headed home with a wobbly wheel. I still kicked some roadies arses though, so it wasn’t all bad. Up until the spoke went i was riding really smoothly and “efficiently”. Ace.
Friday’s after work ride was the first road-night-ride of the year done in full on nice winter weather; ie sub zero but with starry clear skies and a moon bright enough to turn my lights off in places
Sadly my toes went numb while riding and i had to suffer the first “itchy pain” of the season as they came back to life back at home, but on the plus side my new dhb waterproof gloves from wiggle performed superbly, as did the dhb thermal tights and endura skull cap. Mmmm, toasty warm!
I like riding bikes.
