Worked from home today…

I took the FatBike out for a cold, wet, miserable and damn slow lunchtime spin (me thinks I should pump the tyres up a little!)

After work I went for a swim with Wifey…

I am struggling to get my Breaststroke kick right, it just felt wrong, and I am still soooooo slow and inefficient πŸ™

After swim/food, I spent the evening fettling the folding bike…

Worked from home today..

It was far to windy to go out for a bike ride, so I set up the rollers after work and had an hours session…

15th October 2017

I arranged with Gary and Simon to meet at my house for an 8am set off to Cheddar and back πŸ™‚

There was an unreasonably fierce headwind blowing,Β  but at least that meant a tail wind home πŸ™‚

Gray was taking his shiny new (summer) bike out, so had requested no gravel cycle paths, so I planned a new route that both avoided the (Cinder Path) Strawberry line from Yatton to Cheddar AND the horrible Main road at Congresbury Roundabout (The route was darn good)

We stopped in Cheddar for a spot of luncheon πŸ™‚

I settled on some Cheesy Chips and a Bacon Sarnie with Coffee πŸ™‚

Gary decided that he needed to clean his bike….

After lunch we headed up the gorge, and continued, up, down,up, down on a very lumpy route home via Bath…

We stopped at the Swan (Kingsdown) for a spot of Apple Juice πŸ™‚

Oh…including Indoor (Zwift) miles, I have now done over 10,000 miles this year πŸ™‚

Normal sort of Saturday…

Up early and out on the chain gang route…

I had swapped the Hope wheels with Tubeless tyres back to winter wheels with a new set of disks, The rear caliper was binding πŸ™ It made for some hard work….some would say good resistance training!

When I got back home, it was shower/change then out for doggy walkies and luncheon with wifey…

At 4pm I cycled into Melksham on the fixed gear for my swimming lesson…

So tomorrow I only need to do 52 miles to have done 10,000 miles for the year (including virtual miles)…

Sad thing is I have done 1375 virtual miles over about 65 hours….(I spent a lot of time on Zwift this year!)
