We’ve had some really great weather of late – you’d almost think it was actually summer here in the UK – so combined with some time off work I’ve been able to get out on the bike more than usual.
I’ve mixed it up with some fantastic club rides alongside my Woking CC crew, a few relaxed solo jaunts exploring the Chilterns and some faster smash-ups as well. I haven’t really focused on training or hitting numbers, just enjoying my extra time on two wheels.
Yesterday I did focus on the numbers though, getting out on the time trial bike for a tester over my local 10-mile course. With less than fresh legs I set a yearly course PB and a new 20-minute power PB in the process. Really happy with that as I haven’t put in as much specific TT training this year as I would have liked.
This weekend many of my club mates will be smashing it around the closed roads of London and Surrey for the Prudential Ride London 100 mile sportive. Good luck to anyone reading this who may be riding it. The weather looks to be perfect. A far cry from last year’s downpour. I must enter the Pru 100 one year! #keepcycling
