Weekly roundup (20/08/2018 – 26/08/2018)

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

This was a fun ride.  I did do quite a bit of climbing and descending which has pushed hard.  There is a 1km climb on my route that I do which is fun and love to do more of them.  It is a fun punchy climb and there is some amazing route at these woods I will do more fun places to go and around.

I had a bad body yesterday where I wanted to sleep loads and I did so.  I was very bloated and uncomfortable all day.  So I have chosen to not ride today for that reason, But I am already feeling better then I did yesterday as I write this.  I have a package coming to me today so I will have some things to sort out on my bike.

Wednesday Ride

This was the frist time that I rode with an oval chainring and that is something that I will talk about in a future post.  This was the best ride that I have done some amazing kilometres that I have not done at this pace before.  I have done the fastest 25 km in my life off-road this is.

Thursday Ride

Today when I went out for a ride and thought that I need to more ride with this new chainring as it killed me out.  I have to spend the rest of this week to get my strength up for the ride.  I will work on my cadence as I go along as this is what will be pushing my bike along as I go up hills and across the flat area.  I did have a big surprise when I saw a load of wood on one of the paths which were piled up and lumpy.  It was hard to get over and will be a good work out if I had not killed my legs out, which can only be a good thing as I get stronger for riding long distances.

Friday Ride

this was a hard ride as my mind was all over the place and was not really on cycling.  the one thing I have to say it was a worth it work out.  I going to focus more for tomorrows ride as then I can work harder to get fit and have fun.  I need to start stretching more and getting my knees sorted for the ride as well.

Saturday Ride

It was a good ride and then again I have to get used to riding my new chainring.  I will be working in this other the next few weeks.  This was a fun ride and I would love to ride longer rides.  I am hoping to start next week with doing longer and faster rides as I do my 5km’s.

Sunday Thought

Well, getting a new kit and chainring for my bike is worth it.  I am hoping to start getting fitter.  I love to start getting faster and faster with this gearing.  I have to say that using an oval chainring is going to be a good thing once I start to move on my bike and get my cadence at around 80rpm as this is something that will speed me up and get me moving.


Don’t know if it’s illegal to be handsome and ride a bike at the same time but whatever, I live dangerously.

I hope you enjoyed this
