Logn ride home: Take it easy, by @steevc

Having run yesterday I was not feeling like exerting myself too much, but still wanted to cycle home from work. I thought I would just take it steadily, but there are still a few downhill stretches where I can go fast. It was fairly cool and I just checked to see it was 7C warmer last time I did this a couple of weeks ago. I started with a jacket, but soon warmed up and had to take it off.

It was an uneventful ride. There were a few people out walking dogs and a couple of cyclists, but this is still working hours for most people. I am lucky that I can finish early on a Friday.

As I write this it just started raining heavily, so I was lucky to miss that. The garden could do with some rain. I am playing at open mic tonight, so I need to prepare for that. I also have a performance at the village fete tomorrow with our jazz group and next weekend I'm playing at a festival as part of a duo. I never thought I would be so busy musically.

Wow, that is a pretty impressive ride. It reminds me of a guy I work with that used to ride his bike to school. I think it is about 20 miles one way from where he lives. It is pretty impressive if you have the time to dedicate to it!


I keep thinking I should try doing it more than once a week, but it takes up time. I know others do more than that every day. It is just an opportunity for me to fit more exercise into my week.


You driving around with that Steem shirt, that's some next level shilling! 22Km in 1 hour is quite good, congrats


I'm not sure anyone noticed the shirt, but I wanted to wear it anyway. It was a good ride.


Do you have paved sidewalks the entire way or are you riding on the side of the road?
