I used to cycle quite a bit many moons ago (and I mean many!). I have just got back into the saddle again and realised just how much I enjoy it. I am almost embarrassed to say that I am doing only 20 miles at a time with an average speed of 14 mph – but being very unfit I don’t think that’s too bad and we all have to start somewhere right?
My aim is to step up the pace a bit and get out three evenings a week as well as my regular Sunday ride (to which I am adding a few extra miles a week) so will get there eventually.
I didn’t think I was going to be able to get out for a ride today as the weather forecast said rain, rain and yet more rain. Still, I got up early and low and behold, although it was overcast, there was no rain. A quick check on the Met Office website said that rain wasn’t due until 11:00 so it was goodbye grocery shopping and hello bike.
I had a really good run which I thoroughly enjoyed. It did start raining about three quarters of the way through so I decided to head back home. At least I could blame the weather for having to cut my ride short.
Total distance covered was 20 miles at and average speed of 13.75 mph.
