Keeping up the pressure
The nice weather continues and I’m beginning to enjoy my rides on my road bike. Not only can I cover much greater distances than on my mountain bike but I don’t need to drive to the trails and I don’t need to clean it after a ride.
Yesterdays ride was twice around a local 10 mile loop. Actually its a little over 10 miles at about 10.65 miles. First time around was OK in a time of 36:29, the final couple of miles into the wind were hard though. Next time around I pushed quite hard on the first few miles with the wind behind me, but then struggled a little over the hills in the middle and against the wind at the end. My time for the second loop was however 2 seconds faster at 36:27.
