Another trip abroad..

Yesterday, Chris, Ollie and I, along with one of Ollie’s old school mates – Matt, cycled to Wales and back. Coincidentally, it was exactly a year since this.  You may well think “well that wasn’t a coincidence; they planned last years ride, and they planned yesterday’s ride”, but we didn’t plan to do them exactly a year apart!

It gives me a chance to see how my cycling has changed though; for one I did not projectile vomit after the ride, despite it being about 24 miles longer.

Here are some photos for comparison, followed by some facts and figures!

A comparison of the 2014 Welsh Adventure with yesterdays adventure:

Mileage: 86 Miles vs. 110.6 Miles

Elevation Gain: 3,560 ft vs. 3,329 ft

Avg Speed: 14.1 Mph vs. 15.8 Mph

Moving Time: 6:07:25 vs. 7:00:37

Elapsed Time: 7:38:05 vs. 08:01:03

Luckily it was slightly flatter yesterday; the legs are still recovering from Yorkshire and two fairly fast rides during the week. Other than that, I am pretty happy with how my cycling is going. Definite improvement there!

Although I’m doing something wrong if I’m no longer sick!

Less than a week ’til the essay is due in and summer is here 🙂
