Feel like i am finally getting back into cycling again, took ages though. still wrestling with the ice, G came off at the weekend, days after advising someone else not to ride with keys in pocket in case of an ‘off’, he found himself locked out on account of a bent and snapped set of housekeys. It was in a pucklechurch ice-field which proved too much for most of the club.
been riding gears today and yesterday – it has taken ten minutes off my commute at either end, on account of the descents i imagine, and the rolling over the top, it is more efficient. feels really odd though to be spinning up belmont on a compact, right down the gears, sat down all the way, when i normally attack it on a 72″. still, i think the base speed is probably very similar.
current mileage for january is standing at 400 miles, which isn’t a huge amount, but it’s a good base after a short layoff.i guess i’ll be building up to 800-900 mile months after this.
