I had to attend Milton Keynes today πŸ™

I didn’t bother taking a bike as it would have been awkward…So I went for a Zwift session when I got back home…

19th November 2017

We (Simon, Paul and Myself) had agreed that we would go for an early morning ride then tag on to the Chippenham Wheelers leisure ride…

The plan was, Simon would meet me at my house then we would cycle the long way round to Paul’s, then on to the club ride, I decided to set of early and meet Simon on route, unfortunately Simon enjoys riding on major roads to much, so I missed him! Wifey told Simon where I was, so I didn’t have to long to wait…

As I waited Paul sent a text saying he was wimping out….We did the pre ride loop anyway! arriving at the leisure ride start just in time…

It appears the leisure ride no longer waits for slower riders to crest hills any more, Simon and I waited for the last guy up Bowden Hill, and gave a lead out to catch the group up…

As we caught them Simon had a puncture, and yep nobody bothers stopping (Don’t quite understand the lack of etiquette any more), three of us helped Simon change his tube (well stood by and took the piss).

We got going again, then there was another puncture (another flint), after so much delay it was unlikely the Woodborough Garden Centre Cafe would be doing anything other than Sunday lunch, so we decided to divert to Avebury, for tea and cake πŸ™‚

We all decided to change the route so headed to Devizes, RowdeΒ  (stopping at the Rowdy Cow cafe for Bacon and Coffee) before heading home…

Not quite the planned route or distance, but it was quite chilly and tiring on the Day One Alfine…

It was chucking it down with rain at the time I needed to leave to cycle to my swimming lesson, so I drove instead!

Strava session for swim here…

Swimming lesson went well, I ended up doing lengths instead of widths so swimtag is accurate, it also gave me the chance to focus on technique, instead of doing a few strokes and stopping to turn around!

I managed to convince wifey that buying a new bike for the summer would be a good idea πŸ™‚

So I have bought a 2017 Cannondale Synapse Carbon 105Β  Disc for the summer πŸ™‚
