Tuesday 15th bike ride

After cycling to Arlesey on Monday, I needed to get a few supplies for my bike before the London to Cambridge event next month. So instead of using the car (which would cost £1.50), I decided to cycle to Biggleswade and back.

So my route was:

It was quite possibly one of the windiest days I’ve been cycling this year! No matter what direction I was going in, it was a constant struggle. On the way back I was rather weighed down with all the shopping I’d bought at ASDA, so I learnt a lesson, take a better backpack.

I bought another water carrier for the seat post, a CO2 pump with 4 spare cartridges and an inner tube, so hopefully I now have enough kit to fix two bikes.

Sunday 6th bike ride

Today we were going out for a short bike ride (I just couldn’t be bothered this morning – too tired) but after we got to Steeple Morden, I was tricked in to going further. So instead of around 10 miles the ride ended up at 17 miles.

So here is the route:

Saw a fair few cyclists many of whom were very friendly.
Weather was dull, but I’ve got a nice tan (compared to my usual porcelain colour) this year due to all the cycling!

Wednesday 19th bike ride

On Wednesday I went out on my own, so only did the route we refer to as “the block”. This route is as around 10.25 miles and is rather flat, so quite relaxing and a good indication of how fit we are getting as we always time how long this ride takes us.

So here is the route:

Wednesday wasn’t a nice day to go for a long cycle ride because of the quantity of greenfly in the air. I spent the whole ride hating every minute and cycling as fast as I could to get home and remove the greenfly who had decided to hitch a ride… Due to this I completed the route in the shortest amount of time I’ve ever managed – 44 minutes!
