Well, there was a busy Easter. World class competition at the track champs in Melbourne and the ups and downs of Paris Roubaix. Standard Easter weather returned bang on schedule in the UK with sun, snow rain and gales and that was just Friday. I was in the lucky sunny bit and cycled down to my Sisters' in Guildford. Thursdays blog despite gaining a couple of Facebook likes hadn't resulted in any bike thief crucifixions along my route nor was roadside chocolate forthcoming! Shock of shock the line on my legs that I thought dust stayed post shower and the start of the ridiculous cyclist suntan lines have commenced.
Since signing up to 30 Days of Cycling I have been recording the rides using Endomondo which has been a bit of a roller coaster ride with accuracy. I'm unsure whether random inaccuracy is caused by phone, satellite or app but I'm finding it a mite frustrating. Tuesdays' commute had the phone in the same pocket of the same jacket with bizarrely different results. Fridays' run to Guildford is I guess at least 5 miles over the top as I apparently rode in inexplicable circles at many points. Do Garmin users have the same problems or does the waterproof nature of the Garmin guarantee you a good satellite track?
So here's hoping Viccy Pendletons track burns aren't too sore, Chris Hoys' gap creating software has got a patent and the quality of track cycling we witnessed over the weekend is repeated in London this August.
