I was invited on a longish cycle ride last weekend but didn’t really feel up for it. Partly because the day was cold and somewhat windy and also because I felt like having a relaxed day at home. My bad.
Of course, halfway through the day I felt guilty for not going on the ride so I dashed out for a quick cycle ride near where I live. I spent an hour in the saddle and covered a mere 12 miles but at least I had done something, right!?
I think that brings me to the point of this post. In winter, I think it’s important to continue cycling every week even if your trip distance is short. I wrote about this before in Five Tips for Winter Cycling. So, whatever you do, please carry on cycling over the winter. The continuity will definitely help maintain a base level of cycling fitness ready for longer distances next spring.
Wrap up warm though!
