Out with Ian on the cross bike tonight in almost perfect riding weather.. We headed out along the canal to Claverton, then up the sharp climb to the Cats and Dogs home. It’s just under a mile long with 420 ft or so of climbing, and I think tonight was the first time I cleared it in one go, I usually have to stop to catch my breath part-way up. After that we did a few laps of Rainbow Woods, then I chased buses back down Wellway at 40mph (in a 30mph limit).
Tomorrow I’m going to rebuild the Kaboom to lend to Al, then go for a short spin with him, and Friday I’ve got to take some scouts riding for their cyclist badge. That’s more riding than I’ve done for a long time.
