probably had another couple miles left in the tank but increasing slow n
steady so stuck to the plan ... will do another couple of slightly
smaller rides in the week and going for 12-15 miles next weekend
depending how im feeling

Hey, good for you. Too keep it up, make things comfortable. Don't knacker
yourself out - make it a pleasure, not a chore and your fitness will
build.

Look out for local clubs or groups, and tag along on easier rides.
That'll provide some motivation, and maybe some hints n tips.

No need to go overboard with the spending, but good clothing does
make a difference. Cycling mitts with padded palms are cheap, and
are very comfy. Have a look at leisure-style cycling shorts in your
local shop - these are cut to look like baggy beach shorts. Or consider
a padded shorts insert.

YES! Well done matey
12mph was about my average over the Manc to Black run - not great but it
got me there in the end. Next year I hope to do it much quicker.

and iirc, it's weigh in this morning? - hope that goes okay too!

Sounds like a plan but try for the 15, I don't think 2 miles will make
all that much more difference. Unless they're up hill of course

even the flats are hills .. im sure the world is round or something coz
ive never ridden a completely flat road yet - but thats just a stupid
idea, eh ... we all know the earth is flat!!


Heh! I know what you mean about even the flats feeling like hills -
there's others here that are convinced what I call hills are no such
thing ;-) Thing is though, I *have* found a few roads that *are* dead
flat, so my perceptions aren't distorted like them others here that
think hills are flat and mountains are hills ;-)
