26th March 2017

Up early and cycled over to the Cotswold Water Park (Gateway Centre) to meet up with Russ and Louise for a wee bike ride (to rece the 226 Triathlon Route)

I arrived a little to early so stopped for an early coffee and Pain au Chocolate, when Russ and Louise arrived I cycled over to meet them and was handed a surprise slice of malt loaf (I stowed it away in my jacket pocket for later)

At shortly after 9:30 we set off on the 226 route, I soon cottoned on that the route comprised of Major A roads (A429,A433,A46) with some reasonably busy B roads thrown into the mix, i.e if you squint at an AA road map the route was the thicker lines!

The A433 was particularly busy today as well!

As we pulled off the A46 Lousie was in the need of a drink and food, so she threw her Malt loaf to the floor, so I handed my slice back to her 🙂

We stopped at the Angel Tea Room at Sherston for a spot of lunch, only to be told that the tea room was only doing Roast Sunday lunch from 12 (we arrived at about 10 past 12), I decided at Sherston (the nearest point on the route to home) to head straight back home, it seemed of little benefit to cycle the 20 miles back to the start (Into a headwind) when I was only 15 miles from home!

23rd March 2017

Worked from home today, I managed to break away from work (eventually) and get out for a ride, it was damned windy!

The wind did of course push me home quite nicely 🙂

22nd March 2017

Worked in Milton Keynes today, when I got back home I set the rollers up…..then the PowerTab G3 hub wasn’t detected by Zwift 🙁

I resorted to using the rollers for power and cadence figures 🙁 After 30 minutes or so, I just had enough so stopped, showered and mulled over the power meter….

After dinner, I changed the battery in the hub, the universe is back in sync again 🙂

20th March 2017

Worked from home today, I had to drop the car off at the garage to have a drive shaft oil seal replaced, so as per usual I cycled back home, then cycled to pick the car up at lunchtime… The spring weather was VERY un-spring like 🙁

At 16:30 it looked dry and and sunny out so I went out for a bike ride, it was quite cold and windy 🙁

19th March 2017

Still got a cold, runny nose is turning into a tickly cough 🙁

I decided it would not be wise to spend all day out on a bike, so I settled for an hour or so of easy activity on the rollers 🙂

18th March 2017

I have got a damn cold 🙁

I resorted to a short easy indoor session…I expect it will be the same tomorrow 🙁

17th March 2017

Worked from home today…

I have a damn cold 🙁

But I did take the Equilibrium Disk out for a quick lunchtime spin, the tubeless wheels/tyres roll incredibly well, so far I am very pleased.
