This ride was my first attempt at riding with cycling shoes and cleats. I fell off a couple of times beforehand, and I fell off once en route, but we had to make it a short one as there were a few issues needing fixing on the bike.
Neil had a blowout so we stopped for a while before I turned round to pick up the car and go back for Neil. So there was a standing delay to decide what to do.
So we decided to take Annabeth for a cycle. We had various stops for lunch, Moira (leg tiredness), A ride on the train in Sale (Annabeth would not put her helmet back on after that so there is a bit of a walk as we won’t ride without it on!!), a stop at the Society for Abandoned Animals in Sale for their Spring Fair. Close to home Moira was also suffering with pain and cramp and Annabeth fell asleep!!
I finally managed to break the 12 mph barrier…
The past few days I have been cycling with Niel H I have really noticed the noise that comes from the front tyres, so I decided to try to help me go further (within my lunch break) I would get some road tyres as most of my routes are on tarmac. Here are a few pictures (not brilliant from my phone because there is a reflective strip on the tyre…)
