I took the bike out for a training ride today. Its something I do every now and again, but in all honesty, not as often as i should, or as i would like. My full time job is quite draining, and in addition to that, my freelance writing work when i get home then occupies most of my evenings.
Anyway – i took the bike out for a ride, and the route can be found here http://www.mapmyride.com/workout/192879871
Map My Ride used to enable people to export the maps in HTML, but they seem to have taken away that option now which is a shame. I am going to try another Android App tomorrow for the next training ride.
It's becoming pretty apparent, that this bike will not be suitable for my next around the world cycling expedition (which I figure will start April 2015). By the time I have replaced all that needs replacing, I might as well have bought a new bike! I have my eye on a couple that I would like, but I won't be buying it until a year, or a year and a half down the line. The one that i have will do in the mean time.
