Yes indeed, the first snow of the year seemed like the perfect time to dig out my bike for a spot of cardio.
Basically, I wanted to go to Lidl and decided to ride rather than walk. Naturally I ignored the well worn rear tyre, this only produced mild traction issues putting the power down. The bigger issue was the usual one, it’s a 14in jump frame with the world’s most ridiculously long seat post, it’s not really made for destination cycling! It doesn’t look that daft in the pic below, but that’s it at only half height!
Anyways, mission accomplished. Only 4km but 340 calories burned due to intensity, it’s a big climb straight away out of my estate and then a long gradual climb on the way home. Both directions giving you a nice downhill coast to get your lungs back down inside your ribcage.
Feeling a bit more motivated after managing to cross the 1-stone-down mark. Once again, I’ll save the horror of the topless pics for my private consumption…
