Longest cycle of the year :)

Happy days I did my longest cycle of the year so far. I did 30.60 miles. I was hoping to do more, but my front light died on me. I normally have extra batteries on me. I looked everywhere in my cycling bag and could not find them. I even took the batteries out of my camera in the hope they would work. For some reason they did not work. Ready for the next cycle, I need to make sure I have extra AA batteries in my cycling bag again.

I will leave you with cycling statistics from the cycle.

  • Distance: 30.60 miles.
  • Time: 2:37:34 (h:m:s).
  • Avg Speed: 11.7 mph.
  • Max Speed: 27.6 mph.
  • Elevation Gain: 301 meters.

First cycle in 7 days

I am back to my normal happy self, now my cold has gone at long last. Since I am fully over it. I got out on my bike for the first time in a whole 7 days. Today I did want I call the “Colsterworth loop” not the longest cycle in the world since it’s only 19 miles. But I did not want to over do it. But tomorrow, if the weather plays ball I will try to do a longer cycle.

I will leave you with cycling statistics from the Colsterworth loop cycle.

  • Distance: 19.09 miles.

My blu-ray collection keeps growing

My blu-ray collection keeps growing. I have worked out if you add all the discs up together, I now have 61 of them. I have another two on the way, I am waiting for Beautiful People – Series 1 & 2 to turn on. I already have them on DVD. But they are so good, want to own the blu-ray versions.

If you have never heard of Beautiful People then check out en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beautiful_People_(UK_TV_series).

Sorry I have not been posting

Sorry I have not posted anything at all since 16th January. Had a bad cold since last Wednesday, so just been feeling sorry for myself. Not even been out on my bike is 6 days :(. Which is a long time for me. I was hoping to later today, but the cold and rain has put a stop to that!

Oh there is some other news, that is I now own a neoprene sleepsack. Maybe best I don’t say much about it here. Check out my other website, to read about it. I am sure you will know the address for it!

Updated the cycle route section

Over the past 24 to 48 hours I have been working like mad giving the cycle route section a much needed update. Never been fully happy with it, since the new version of the website went live last year.

The new look includes photos from each cycle. Well ones that I have photos from anyway. The maps have been changed from the satellite view to map view. I have also been adding elevation data. Also added new routes, which I have listed below.

My newest cycling gear

I am sure you will have read a number of days back I ordered myself some new cycling pants from ChainReactionCycles.com well they are here. I really like them so far and no idea why I think they also look sexy on :).

Here are some photos of myself wearing them. I took the second photo, just to show I am still wearing my sexy lycra cycling shorts under them.

Great Ponton loop cycle

Well pleased with myself just done the longest cycle of the month so far. I did a grand total of 28.06 miles. Also set my fastest speed of the month. My average was the slowest of the year so far. Then it was the cycle with the most hills, so far this year. So I guess my legs are still getting use to hills again. And to person that asked if I am going slower due to putting on weight at Christmas. No that’s not the case at all. I always go slower in winter.

I will leave you with cycling statistics from the Great Ponton loop cycle.

  • Distance: 28.06 miles.
  • Time: 2:17:33 (h:m:s).
  • Avg Speed: 12.2 mph.
  • Max Speed: 29.2 mph.
  • Elevation Gain: 294 meters.

Cycled to Rutland Water

Today I went a very nice cycle to Rutland Water and back. After looking at my cycling statistics for last year. Turns out I have not cycled there since April. So this year I need to change that and go more often again.

This year is off to great start, I have now done the second most miles I ever ever done in January. Total so far stands at 83.18 miles. To bet last years total I have to do a total of 355.6. Meaning I still have to do another 272.42 miles to bet it. So let’s just hope this good weather lasts till the end of the month.

I will leave you with cycling statistics from the Rutland Water cycle.

  • Distance: 22.05 miles.
  • Time: 1:42:13 (h:m:s).
  • Avg Speed: 13 mph.
  • Max Speed: 27 mph.
  • Elevation Gain: 195 meters.
