My MTB Journey 31 December

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 […]

My MTB Journey 28 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 […]

My MTB Journey 18-26 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 […]

My MTB Journey 13 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 […]

My MTB Journey 11 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 […]

My MTB Journey 5 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. […]

My MTB Journey December 3

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 […]

My MTB Journey 29 November.

29 November. Early Sunday morning. A fraction over 76 minutes 1.16.17. This was moving time as I had  mechanical. The actual ride took a good six or seven minutes longer after a cabbage tree leaf wrapped itself around the rear sprocket and I had to stop and unwind it. This is a bit of a […]

My MTB Journey 22 November

22 November. Early Sunday morning. A fraction over 75 minutes again! 1.15.33., with ten Strava segment achievements. Clearly the liquid carbo loading last night didn’t help, but its still my second best time. Comparing this morning with my effort on Friday I was a good minute faster in the second half of the circuit and […]

My MTB Journey 20 November

20 November. Friday afternoon. A fraction over 75 minutes, 1.15.22, with 5 Strava segment achievements! Just 22 seconds to go and I can go bike shopping seriously. However, it might be a long wait before I can get my hands on a new steed, with all sorts of disruptions in local and international supply chains, […]
