Overtaking 2009

I’ve already done more miles this year than I managed in 2009, although to be fair that wasn’t a particularly difficult target to beat.

Not a huge amount of riding this week, I did the long commute on Tuesday then fell foul of a summer cold for a few days, but finished the week off with a quick 50 minute run out to Bitton and back tonight. I’m not going to set any time-trial records, but a 16.2mph average isn’t bad for a fat bloke on a moderately geared fixie.

The Jackson is still impressing me, comfortable to ride, and nice and responsive, it kept forcing me to go faster as I span back in along the A36 on the final few miles of the ride.

If I get up early it’ll be an off-road ride with Al and Andy tomorrow, if I have a lie-in it’ll probably be another spin on the Jackson before the TdF coverage.

    Excellent, well done Rich :)

    I’ve done barely half of what I managed in 2009 and about a third of what I did in 2008. Pretty poor effort so far really.

    I expect you’ve ridden considerably further than me though.

    Possibly – 2916.1 Km

    Yup, considerably further :)
