That has to be the best February when it comes to cycling I have EVER had.
Distance 457.40 mi
Ave Speed 14.5 mph (Chuffed considering some of the climbs)
Ave Heart Rate 154 bpm
Now, last summer I set myself a target of between 400 and 450 miles per month, some months I was SHOT by the end, yet this month, I have done more than the summer targets, at a faster pace and I feel mighty fine 😀
Last week I cycled almost 150 miles, today, in fairness I am tired, but that’s due to having about 4 hours sleep a night 😦
Was also reminded last week why I only ever want to cycle to work, there was a 7 mile gridlocked traffic jab because of this.
So last week , April’s Cycling Active came out, its a great article, much more than I expected, below is one of the best pictures from the shoot, that wasn’t used in the article.
So, what are you waiting for? get out there and get it read 🙂
Gaz & British Cycling:
Yesterday I underwent training with British Cycling to become a ride leader, I am now qualified and insured to lead out my own group of upto 8 riders (and I can charge you all for it LOL) , I have some big plans for a change of career in the future, for now, I’m enjoying myself too much.
EDIT: Toby mentioned setting up a just giving page to to raise the £10k needed to get my skin removed, maybe I could set up rides, so at least everyone gets something back 🙂
I managed to try these, at first I hated them, almost spat them out, but kept on going and by the end, I enjoyed them, genuinely, I do hope I am turning a corner.
New Bike Time:
So, I have decided to go with QUALITY over quantity.
At this moment in time I now have a CAAD9 (most awesome bike ever)
and my EMERGENCY 1970’s bike.
However, arriving from the far east next week will be a bike that matches my super super awesomeness , Im not saying too much other than its plastic and has SRAM force and BB30, for the rest, you gotta wait :D.
Nail yourself into the ground
Enjoy The Above 🙂
