I went out for a ride on tuesday night and decided to just do some road miles. Interestingly The ride was much faster than I expected, with an average speed of 10.6 mph. I completed the ride in 35 minutes and surprisingly still had plenty of life left in my legs. My max speed was disappointing, but that was due to slow traffic on the road thanks to the speed humps!
Tonight I’ll go for 3 laps and aim to keep the average speed above 10mph and complete the ride in around an hour. Reflecting back on the ride, it was quite good fun and I may have to buy some skinny tyres and some spare rims to put on the bike and do this more often. It’ll certainly be good for building up leg strength, which in turn, should help with my climbing on the proper stuff!
Oh, and i’ve removed the K100 from my goals for the moment. It’s a long term thing!
