In 10 weeks time we’ll be in Land’s End pondering an early start the following day. Hopefully the weather will be as nice as today. Went for a shortish training ride north towards Blackburn and a loop back through Haslingden. Shorts weather, only two layers for once and nice weather. The Garmin, or my software, seems to have played up on how much climbing I did. As you can see from the screenshot it believes I went below sea level a couple of times; presumably I must have cycled into a pesky old mine shaft without realising it.
Anyway, I used gpsies.com (great site by the way) to plot the route and it reckons there was 2333ft of climbing in 38 miles – it certainly felt a hilly route. Average speed was 15.1mph which suggests my legs are getting more used to climbing hills and I used 2206kcals.
Hopefully the rest of the weekend will be as good.
