After a couple of weeks without a proper ride I turned down an afternoon visit to the cinema in favour of a spin on the Bob Jackson. The plan was simple, head out along the cycle track until I’d finished off my first bottle, then turn round and come home again. I made it as far as Fishponds before my bottle of Nuun was empty, had a 10 minute break, then turned round and headed home via a quick visit to Cadence to order some completely unnecessary bling for the bike. As it was, I hardly touched my second bottle on the ride back, so could have pushed on a bit further, however it gives me something new to explore next time.
24 miles in 90-something minutes and back for a bottle of chocolate milk and a shower. Is there a better way to finish off a few days away from work?
