Turns out road riding is stupidly easy...
#1
As per title - finally pulled my finger out and did my first commute of the year.  Didn't even have slick tyres on and i smashed my previous best time to get home by several minutes, despite riding very little lately.  Less than 56 mins to get home from Sandwich  8)  Ben, Ade - i don't know what all the fuss is about!!  Big Grin

My riding is more up and down than the damn area I live in! And the tart's knickers who lives next door - Combined!  :o

It is stupidly easy on the road, we never said it was hard! - Thats why you need to do 25 miles+ to get any benefit.

Just come back from my beach ride to get up the cliffs, thats mainly promenade - but the coastal winds today made it feel like I was cycling in treacle this morning.

A bonus today was that I didnt ride through dogsh*t, but I did get chased by a Boxer Dog.
