It has been far too long since I last rode my bike. It is all far too easy to fall for the lure of the sofa in winter when it is cold, raining and windy outside. Today was a very mild and sunny winter morning, if breezy. It turns out that today was the warmest New Year’s Day on record, which is not a good thing. Around here, it was about 12.8c (55f).
Today’s ride was the start of a 100-mile training plan for the Ride London-Essex on 29 May. I doubt if I will religiously stick to it, but I have to start somewhere!
