London to Paris routes

Here are Days 2, 3 and 4 from my GPS app. Annoyingly I failed to get Day 1 for various reasons:

London to Cambridge

In the last month I've been building up my fitness by going to spin classes. Then on Sunday, Will and I set off from London and rode over 60 miles to Cambridge. It was my first long ride and it was easy until the hills and rain spoilt the fun. We stayed overnight in a hostel and cycled back yesterday, managing to beat our time convincingly.

Here is most of our trip on the way there. Annoyingly my phone battery died before the end, which is why there's a straight line for the last section and why it's only showing 58.6 miles...

First proper ride

I finally started my cycling training!

It wasn't really far but it's a start. As you can see from the map below, we cycled from Brighton out to Shoreham and back. It was a lovely sunny day and my new bike was great to ride. I do have a bit of a sore bum, but we won't talk about that.

New Bike!

After doing some research, testing different models and shopping around, I finally settled on the Specialized Secteur road bike. It wasn't cheap but it will hopefully be worth it over the next few months. The Cycle2work scheme helped though!

I picked it up earlier this week and tomorrow I will be attempting my first proper bike ride. I can't wait! Fingers crossed I don't fall off...

New Shoes!

Here are my new shiny running shoes, which I got on Christmas Day! :D
I'll be going on my first run this weekend.
