Forty February

Well I did say last month that I'd have a few days off for my birthday and I did! February was and easier month miles wise but I really think my biggest gains so far cycling wise have been made. I managed to eat quite a lot of this cake and as such the weight... Continue Reading →

January 2021

Happy New Year! 2020 was pretty successful for me cycling wise. I managed to use the pandemic and lockdown to my advantage by ploughing the spare time it gave me into cycling, namely Zwifting. I wanted to go into 2021 with the same mindset - we will never get this lockdown time again - so... Continue Reading →

December Done (and 2020 Review)

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Mileage went down in December unfortunately but it's always nice to have some time to relax rather than be flogging yourself every day on the bike. Thankfully I have already achieved my mileage goal so I could afford a bit of me time. I'm not really sure where... Continue Reading →

Swollen September

I started off March quite well having a 56 mile week 1 total but then I got ill again. I managed to cycle through the last cold but this one knocked me for six and... Continue Reading →

Lagging Behind 2015 Badly

Got a shock this morning when checking my Veloviewer account - I am 445 miles behind my 2015 annual distance!  This isn't good news when I was wanting to cycle 3,000 miles this year which was 745 more miles. I don't think that I will reach 3,000 unless I do something quite drastic.  We have... Continue Reading →
