On Wednesday I set off on the Bicycle to get a long ride done, I had a loose plan of Cycling over to the Mourne Mountains, up Bryansford and drop down in to Kilkeel. I only got a few miles in and my Legs were struggling to ride at their normal power and speed output. There was a strong headwind so speed would naturally be down but I should still have been able to put the same power out. I continued on to see if the Legs would wake up
Almost twenty miles in and no improvement, time to turn around and head for home, take a few easy days to rest.
Fast forward to Sunday Evening and time to Saddle up and test the Legs, but only a short spin. Out through Dundonald and up the Greengraves road. Another Cyclist came past me, I knew I could not climb at his pace but I upped my effort anyway. Out on to the Newtownards road carriageway and he turned right for Scrabo, traffic was light so I opted to stay on the carriageway and enjoy the fast descent down in to Ards. Round the roundabout and in to the Scrabo road. The climb up around Scrabo is well surfaced and a nice gradual gradient with only a couple of steeper ramps.
Down the Moate road on to the Carriageway again and a brisk spin in through Comber and home via the Greenway. A brisk spin overall and the Legs working very well, a few days rest had worked a treat.
On Wednesday the Legs were empty, lacking power and speed. A few days rest and a short spin this evening to try the Legs out and much better tonight #stravaphoto #stravacycling #cycling #outsideisfree #cyclingni #roadcycling #wahooligan #inmyelement #fromwhereiride #cyclingmemories #discoverni #northernireland #roadslikethese #ridewithaview #mycyclingweekend #LeColByWiggins
