I took the bike out for a longer training ride today, which saw me cycle out to Market Harborough and back, a total distance of just over 60kms. I found it reasonably easy, but then again, it is quite flat and there is only the occasional wind to contend with. It would probably be a lot easier if I had wheels that went around properly though, and the next series of purchases that I make will be to buy a new back wheel at the very least.
I have put the maps of my ride below. Again, I used mapmyride, and decided to cut the recording into two parts. Just as well, because the battery in my phone ran out on the return journey!
