Weekly roundup (23/04/2018 – 29/04/2018)

Hey all

Monday Ride

This was a fun and fast ride.  As my other bike has a wheel having a spoke changed, so I took my road bike out.  At first, I was not great at it but then I started to ride hard and fast as I got the feel back after riding a much bigger and heavy bike.

Tuesday Ride

This was a bit of a shock as it reminded me how much hard cycling road is as well as dangers of other road users.  I also killed my legs out which is not always a good thing.  But I know this will make my riding stronger and faster.

Wednesday Ride

This was the ride back on my mountain bike.  It was so much nicer than being on road, I do like to ride off-road more than on it.  I do love seeing all the dogs and space so I can ride at my own pace which is alot slower but I am on a heavy bike.

Thursday Ride

This was a fun ride as there was no mud at all.  I was going at nice even speed and it was and had a chilled out time.

Friday Ride

This was a good ride.  I did a short ride as it was on a rainy day.  There is meant to be alot of or rain today so I thought it would be best to ride in the morning as it is only going to get worse as the day goes, or at least that is what the weather report is saying.

This was a fun ride and there was not as much mud as there should have been.

Sunday Thought

This was a bit of a different week as there was road and off-road in one week.  Which is different for me.  I am not going to ride again on the road if I can help it as I did not like the having the cars on the road as some do not look out for bikes.


“I began to feel that myself plus the bicycle equalled myself plus the world, upon whose spinning wheel we must all earn to ride or fall into the sluiceways of oblivion and despair. That which made me succeed with the bicycle was precisely what had gained me a measure of success in life — it was the hardihood of spirit that led me to begin, the persistence of will that held me to my task, and the patience that was willing to begin again when the last stroke had failed. And so I found high moral uses in the bicycle and can commend it as a teacher without pulpit or creed. She who succeeds in gaining the mastery of the bicycle will gain the mastery of life.”
Frances E. Willard, ‘How I Learned To Ride The Bicycle’, 1895
