Today’s ride 2: Cafe Velo

21°C, 0 cloud but light W breeze.

I rode fixed with MapMyRide+! Distance: 51.55km, time: 01:58:38, pace: 2:18min/km, speed: 26.07km/h.

Back at home, the garden held some pleasant surprises for me, water lilys are in flower and some others that I don’t know names of.

This is the second ride of the day. Today is the first day of my 6 week summer holiday so some celebration is due. The first one was all about collecting my car but included a visit to the Beach Machines.

Back on two wheels I went over to Leisure Lakes, the bike shop there hires bikes so I had a query that has lurked in the back of my mind for a few years. Fat bikes are a kind of simplified mountain bike with enormous tractor tyres. Now, I live by the coast with long beaches that stretch out to a distant sea. There is a perfect land to ride out and explore on big balloon tyres. For £15 I can have one for a whole day. It’s booked for tuesday.
