15 January, Friday afternoon. 77 and a half minutes or 1.17.25. Slightly better than the last ride, but still a long way off my target. Really hot and windy again, but the tracks are in good nick. It appears that the heat has as much to do with my times as the condition of the […]Read more "My MTB Journey 15 – 22 January"
Friday afternoon. 78 minutes, 1.18.07. This is my slowest effort for quite some time which is a bit disappointing and a bit of a setback. It’s been pretty wet for the last couple of days, it was raining up until a couple of ours before I went riding, and while I thought it had cooled […]Read more "My MTB Journey 8 January"
Monday 4th January. Hooray for Mondayised Holidays! Just a touch over 75 minutes. 1.15.07. Not too long ago I would have been happy with this time. The only saving grace is that its been raining off an on for the last few days so the tracks are a bit sloppy in places. On the positive side, […]Read more "MY MTB Journey 4 January"
Just a wee bit slower than Monday 1.13.31. Roughly the same speed as the other day. Eight Achievements, two personal records, seven minutes faster than this time last year. Yehaaa. Not a bad way to end the year I guess. My score card would say more effort required in the early part of the circuit. I […]Read more "My MTB Journey 31 December"
Just over seventy three minutes or 1.13.17. Two and half minutes quicker than the other morning, so I am pretty happy with myself. However, still almost a minute off my best time which I managed on a hot, windy afternoon. Still, cant be unhappy with nine segment achievements, including three records. Three of these were in […]Read more "My MTB Journey 28 December"
18 December. Friday after work. 74.05 minutes 1.14.05. Pretty hot conditions and I had a wee whoopsie. I’m disappointed with a time that I would have been happy with on my last ride as this is one and a half minutes slower than last week. I had eight achievements, six of which were in the […]Read more "My MTB Journey 18-26 December"
Sunday morning road ride 1.36.47. Two and a half minutes better than my best time on this route. It’s fairly windy still and the first half of the ride seemed to be into a stiff breeze. However, I still managed an improvement. I rode this circuit this morning to see how the new wheels would […]Read more "My MTB Journey 13 December"
A windy warm Friday afternoon. 72 and half minutes or 1.12.24 to be precise, which means I have well and truly smashed my target! Today’s effort was two and a half minutes better than my last ride on an evening that was fairly warm and quite windy. Not surprisingly I had six personal segment records […]Read more "My MTB Journey 11 December"
5 December. Early Saturday morning. Just a whisker over 75 minutes. 1.15.02. I’m a little frustrated because I fumbled with unlocking my phone this morning which delayed me stopping the timer, which cost me a few seconds. If I had got this right then I am pretty sure I would have easily bettered my target. […]Read more "My MTB Journey 5 December"
29 November. A sneaky, early Thursday morning ride. A fraction over 75 minutes. 1.15.08. The new bike helped me shave a further fourteen seconds off my best time. However, I am still yet to put that perfect performance together and smash through the 75 minute target. It’s not often I have felt able to have a […]Read more "My MTB Journey December 3"
