So I met up with my cycling group and we rode 85kms in one morning.
Sounds really impressive, but I was SOOOOOOOO SLOW hypo app downloaden.
It was really embarrassing. It was not an impressive effort at all.
See, I was trying to pace myself. I haven’t been on my bike for a couple of weeks, I didn’t want any muscle injuries and I wanted to do the whole “Slow and Steady Wins The Race” thing youtube video über browseren. You know, like a tortoise?
Having said that… this particular day was really, REALLY WINDY. Perth has been experiencing weeks of rain, stormy conditions and winds between 30-50km/h herunterladen conj.
I rode painfully and shockingly slow for 43kms… heading into a strong wind.
At some points I was riding 10km per hour! *Cringe*
Each down stroke of my pedal was really hard work, making my leg muscles burn strato hidrive. Imagine doing that for 2 hours straight :P
But once we turned around… the wind was behind us, pushing us along… and I was *flying* on my bike kostenlos play store herunterladen. It was awesome!
I was cruising along, with hardly any effort at all at 38km/hr… it was fuuuuuun :)
It kind of made all the hard work worth it Download accounting for free.
This is the lovely bike path that leads straight from Murdoch Train Station to Paganoni Road (slightly north of Mandurah) Download emojis pc. 43kms of flat, straight paths. Effortless right?
Oh and I did something really stupid!
The night before my ride, I adjusted my seat – just down a little tiny bit antenne bayern app herunterladen. I have a bottle carrier mounted on the base of my seat, and so I adjusted that too.
And I did these adjustments IN THE DARK. Which yes, is just genius windows server 2016 iso herunterladen.
So at the start of my ride, I felt that I was going really slow. Unusually slow. I was pushing and pushing my pedals with so much effort. I thought the resistance was from the strong winds and that my legs were out of practice.
It turned out that the bottom of my bottle was pressed against my tires… and acting like a brake!
My tires were wearing out the bottom of my water bottle!
It was only until one of my team mates noticed my leaking water bottle – that I realised what was happening.
Look at that!
The bottom of the bottle was worn through in three places, because I shifted it around two or three times while riding.
Geez, I felt so stupid :P
OK that aside, I was wondering if you’d like to support my ride?
