It’s a strange old month is February. When I look back at last years Strava log for February 2015 I can see that the miles took a hit and they are doing so this February too. I don’t think it helps that it’s my birthday month and it’s freezing cold but I need to get motivated and finish the month on a high.
To try and mix up the schedule I have recently purchased a mountain bike. A lovely B’Twin Rockrider 560 at a reasonable £450. For that you get a half decent Suntour front fork, SRAM X7 and Tektro hydraulic disc brakes. I must admit it has been fun on the couple of rides I’ve done (one around York and the other at Dalby Forest) but you still don’t get the miles in!
This weekend’s ride around Dalby was fun but very cold. I have to keep reminding myself that in a few weeks it should warm up but the thought of donning just shorts and a jersey seem quite quite far fetched as the snow falls outside.
Been having a couple of little rides on Zwift but this usually takes as much time to set up in the kitchen as it does to get the full winter kit on and do some real miles!
I think it just needs to be head down and bum up, get through February and come the end of March things will be looking up and the clocks will be going forward. Gotta keep on keeping on.
