went on my 1st ride of any distance last night. got home from work early and the missus was still out and my son at his childminders (who is a good friend) so i decided to cycle to see my son. its only about 5.7 miles away but there and back was just about 11.5 miles. i have been commuting for a while now but my ride is only about 3 miles so was nice to get out for longer. think when i get my road bike at the end of the month i may make a change to my rout to work so i can get some miles in! oh i did get bloody wet on my way home though!! i know 11 miles isnt far but its a start right!?
