Did my weekly shopping using me bike :)

I did my weekly shopping using just my bike today. Which may not sound very good at all, but when you take into account, it’s a 14.88 mile round trip. With a good number of hills in between my village and Stamford. Getting there is nice and easy since I had no extra weight on my bike to worry about. On the way back I did notice it just a wee bit. Bt after doing the end2end cycle the weight was nothing at all. I had at least 3 times that when doing that cycle. I used my Arkel XM45 Extreme Mountain Touring Panniers that I got for doing the end2nd cycle. Going by google I saved around £2.78, which is not bad at all. So well pleased with that. It would will soon add up.

Here all the statistics for the cycle:-

  • Time: 1:06:18 (h:m:s).
  • Distance: 14.88 miles.
  • Avg Speed: 13.5 mph.
  • Max Speed: 28.4 mph.
  • Elevation Gain: 122 metres.
  • Elevation Loss: 123 metres.
  • Min Elevation: 27 metres.
  • Max Elevation: 57 metres.
