After yesterday’s Century, today is the first time that I’ve woken up and not been keen to get on my bike. My lack of fitness hits home and the realisation that this year I’ve only managed to cycle 1/3 of the kilometres that I did in the whole of 2015 suddenly weighs heavy on my quads. So with that in mind, I decide to just take a short 60ish km spin to the bike shop for some tubes.
The previous day’s ride was a bit on the long side for riding solo. So for an added morale boost, my daughter joins me for the first few hundred metres.
This is a pretty standard “I just need to get out on the bike” kind of ride, but every kilometre counts!
