Weekly roundup (02/07/2018 – 08/07/2018)

If you are not sure if you know but I am riding London to Brighton off-road which will be fun.  Here is the link if you like to sponsor me, so please click here.

Monday Ride

Well, I did not think that my legs were in such good feeling in my legs.  As there are some great times to come and try do some more miles as I get closer.  I do hope to do my mountain bike will be back soon as I am missing the off-road life.

Tuesday Ride

This was a good day of riding, it was chilled out as I was not pushing myself too hard.  I have just massage from the bike shop that I will have my mountain bike back very soon.  Which sounds fun and amazing, as for the training I can do it off the road as that is where I will need my power and endurance more than being on the road.  As bring off-road is more about keeping legs pumping as on road is easier to keep your speed then being off-road.

Wednesday Ride

This was a fun and fast ride to start with I have to say I did slow down in the second half.  This is something I need to keep pushing more as I start to ride for longer and longer ride.  It was a run and chilled out time which is what I love about cycling as this helps relaxes me as I love cycling.

Thursday Ride

I did see one thing that winds me up I know it should not do that but it just doses.  and that is bikes with motors and the people how are riding them without helmets.  You can hit really high speeds and should wear a skid lid.  I always think they are cheating as you are not really putting your own power in there it is all done thought batteries.  For me, I would not use them on a daily bases as cycling and that is without power other than your legs.  This was a good ride and great fun, I did not get for that long as I have alot of things I like to get done this morning and my legs were not feeling to go hard, so I will leave that for another day.

Friday Ride

This was a good ride, Just I had alot of things go wrong mainly with GoPro not recording which could be my fault.  The Garmin crashed halfway through the ride where it was not talking to me.  So I have two sets of states going up on here.

Saturday Ride

I do have to say this was a good ride and I am going to be looking at some new shoes as I had to keep stopping and taking off my shoes as I have wide feet which is a pain to find shoes for.  This is now my longest ride the fact that I was aiming to ride 60 miles and not 50.  This is something that is worth it,  as this is showing me that my distance is getting better and better all the time.

Sunday Thought

This was a good week as my mountain bike is back in the right right place.  I can not wait to ride it on Monday, mind you the road bike has been a good help as I love to do more cycling.  I will be taking my bike to the shop to get a tune-up, as parts will stretch and gets bedding.
