    Due to too much work, having to vacate my house for 7 weeks (due to useless builders) and my two road bikes being broken, I had not cycled a bike for 3 1/2 months......up until yesterday. :biggrin:

    This is quite shocking considering that I have been commuting by bike for the last 6 years and doing a considerable amount of training for various sportives

    I was a bit worried about it and it had almost become a problem to me. Anyway did my usual 19 mile loop yesterday and it was pretty good, took my time, but felt fairly good. :smile: took me an extra 10 - 12 minutes more than usual (when I am fit)

    I am now feeling quite chuffed and feel I have my cycling mojo back :biggrin::biggrin:

    Maybe even start commuting again :sad:

    I have to admit, it was pretty chilly, but was well wrapped up

    Cracking day, it has given me a real buzz.

    That string vest you're wearing in your photo will help trap air under your outer layer of dirty brown jacket... :sad::biggrin:
