2nd overall

The changing of the sprocket on the cross bike has much improved it.  The irritating bearing noise has gone and the bike is practically silent.  Rather than retiring it, I am now looking forward to going out on it.  I tried a relatively short canal trip yesterday, thinking that the constant pedalling may take more out of me than I expect.  It was a wonderful ride, marred only by me arriving at the park to find the Parkrun about to take place.

In spite of this I managed to move up a place on a Strava segment. Now second overall, and I could easily have gained a further minute if the park wasn’t full of runners.

Poolsbrook Canal circuit

I went out today a little later, too many walkers on the trails for any real speed; but I achieved an overall average of 14 mph and felt really good on the clear parts of the path.
