Training milestone, test ride to work and back using the cyclescheme bike, 40 miles.

I’ve just got back from my practice run to work and back. Glen came with me and we went through Salford and Manchester city centres. total of 40 miles and I’m happy with that for a first time out. I love that bike. Totally different to any other cycling I’ve done (previously owned only mountain bikes and down hill bikes) and can’t believe I’ve missed out all this time. I hate Britain’s roads. discovered that today too.

So my new dilemma is when to start the work commute. tomorrow? (What do you think?) I’m going to consult the rest of my body as soon as it stops saying “ow ow ow ow ow ow ow ow….”

This blog: Tony Hemans and Glen Eccles cycled the Camino Frances from St jean Pied de Port in France to Santiago de Compostela covering 845km in 6 days in October 2012.  If you are trying to get fit, planning an adventure, long distance cyclist or just curious about my mid-life crisis then subscribe and share!
