At the end of last year, and for the start of 2015, I had a quiet period when I didn’t cycle as much as normal. It’s the middle of the year now and I’m happy to say that my cycling mojo is back!
Mainly About Me and Cycling
Some slightly more personal posts about me and cycling. How I got into cycling.
So, I’ve gone and bought a new bike! I’ve been thinking about getting another bike for a few months and I ‘splashed the cash’ a week ago. It’s a Trek 7.4 FX which is a hybrid/commuting type bike. Here’s why I bought it.
On Saturday, some friends and I cycled to Dark Star Brewery for their Spin Up in a Brewery event which promised “Beer, Bikes and BBQ” at the brewery site in Partridge Green.
It’s summer (so they say) and I have a long weekend cycling trip coming up in July. The trip is the Devon Coast-to Coast route from Ilfracombe to Plymouth. That’s 200 miles cycling over three days. In preparation for this, I’ve been training over the last month or so. Here’s what I have been doing; I’m not a fitness instructor but this is what works for me.
I’ve resolved to continue cycling over the winter to maintain a basic fitness level. Here are my tips and advice for winter cycling.
