Evening all, I've been cycling on and off for just over a year now and my first look in was training for London to Brighton 2011 and with little over 3 weeks training I managed that feat even though I carry plenty of timber. Shortly after my bike was stolen and until a week before London to Brighton 2012 I hadn't cycled and unlike 2011 I finished 10 miles from the finish and had a kip in some old girls front garden... Oops! Anyway, I originally come from east London but moved to Bromley and my cycle commute is around 15 miles each way I believe unlike 3 previously. I struggle but get home and back but my stamina doesn't seem to be improving and I literally plod up hills. Am I doing something wrong? I'm trying to cycle four days a week at least but I haven't managed it yet and I've been cycling since London to Brighton for around a month. I'm also a bit thrifty so like saving on an otherwise expensive commute each month. Anyway sorry for waffling, spelling mistakes etc. this is written on my IPhone.
