The Struggle

Another Day and another Bicycle ride. Mid-Afternoon before I got out on the Bike and another scorcher, very warm, no need for the multiple layers of Clothing that were a constant throughout Winter

Straight up the Greenway to Comber for a nice easy start to spin the legs over and hopefully shakeout any fatigue from last evening’s hard push on the pedals. Leaving Comber on the old Ballygowan road and the start of a few hills, my legs were very stiff and heavy I clearly had not recovered properly from last nights efforts but decided to push on anyway and just do whatever I could do.

Turning off the old Ballygowan road down the Ballynichol road then the lumpy Drumhirk road in to Loughview road, the burn road and down the Moss road through Drumreagh. The Ballybunden road was next up and quite a bit down on speed compared to yesterday in to Thornyhill road and Holly Park road where I only just avoided a bad sunken hole hiding in the shadows which would have damaged a wheel had I gone down in to it.

Across the Derryboye road and Manse road straight through Raffrey and Darragh Cross then weaving my way back around to Drumreagh for a second time to take the Tullynagee road back to Comber and home via the Greenway for another 33 miles. One of those rides where the legs were definitely not a fresh as I had hoped but a good spin none-the-less.
