Building up my weekly mileage

September has been a top month on the bike so far. I’ve managed to turn the pedals every day except one, helped by the full five days of cycle commuting. I did the first three days on the commuter bike, but the weather forecast for Thursday and Friday was so nice I took the Kinesis Aithein instead.


Popped out for a short little recovery ride on Saturday and then a great solo spin out to Box Hill this morning (for the best homemade treacle tart in Surrey). Finished the week with a shade over 220 miles and 415 miles for the month.


The legs are feeling fatigued, but still in good form. I’m making sure I focus on recovering well and eating to replace the calorie burn. The commute equates to roughly 500 calories each way. This week’s worth of commuting is looking a little more difficult as the weather is turning wet and windy! #keepcycling

  1. Its been windy ALL YEAR here in France, truly painful. It’s said that its good resistance training and that I’ll feel the benefits when I ride with no wind…. only that day never seems to come.
    Good mileage, well done.


    1. Cheers. Suffered this evening on tired legs riding home into a headwind for the entire 16 miles. Like you say it’s all good training I guess!
