3 Down. Just How Many Are Left?

For the 3rd ride of the 2016 miles in 2016 quest, I was fairly happy with this effort. Despite the wind I managed a decent average speed.

I nearly sacked it off tonight too; it's late, it'll be dark soon and some other excuses came to mind. I simply employed Rule 5 and, to a degree, Rule 9 (can dark country lanes, populated with Sunday drivers, be considered close to bad weather?).

New Year, New Challenge

As 2015 draws to a close I now need to focus on what I want to do in 2016 and I have a crazy idea. For personal reasons I am glad to see the back of 2015, but one plus out of last year was that I started cycling.

After the Sportive in September the Trsuty Steed hasn't seen the short light of a cold winters day, but now she has been cleaned, oiled and the dreaded mudguards added.

My crazy personal challenge is for me to achieve 2016 training miles in 2016. Sounds simple when I put it like that. 

Happy New Cycling Year everyone!
