Weekly shopping with my bike, yes again :)

That’s me now done my weekly shopping using my bike for a third week in a row :P. So again saved £2.78 going by google. So now saved £8.34, so just need to do it again two times and will have saved around the same money I use on a average weeks shopping. This time I only had 4 kg in each pannier. Even with just 8 kg in total, you still notice it when going up the hill.

Here all the statistics for the cycle:-

  • Time: 1:06:14 (h:m:s).
  • Avg Speed: 13.5 mph.
  • Max Speed: 30.7 mph.
  • Elevation Gain: 122 metres.
  • Elevation Loss: 123 metres.
  • Min Elevation: 27 metres.
  • Max Elevation: 57 metres.

Also well pleased with myself set myself target of doing 1,000 miles on the bike, by the start of April. So far I have done 989.2, meaning I only have another 10.8 miles to go. Oh even better looks like this will be my first 500 mile+ month of the year. Done 414.5 so far.  So only got around 85.5 more to go. Which if the weather stays like this, I will have done by Friday 🙂

989.2

Just done my weekly shopping with my bike again :)

Well pleased with myself, just down my weekly shopping on my bike, for the second week in a row :). So saved around £2.78 going by google. So in just two weeks I have saved £5.56. It may not sound much, but it will soon add up very fast indeed. This time I also worked out how much weight I had in each pannier on the way back. In the right one I had 7 kg and in the left 5 kg. So 12 kg in total, which you do really notice when going up hills.

Here all the statistics for the cycle:-

  • Time: 1:07:11 (h:m:s).
  • Avg Speed: 13.3 mph.
  • Max Speed: 31 mph.
  • Elevation Gain: 122 metres.
  • Elevation Loss: 123 metres.
  • Min Elevation: 27 metres.
  • Max Elevation: 57 metres.

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.
