Out to Lunch

Just a short first warm-up today with Jane in preparation for the Big Ride For Palestine at the beginning of August which we have signed up for.

Over to Roadford and back with a nice very full sandwich and panini in the cafe. Only mistake was missing a turn on the way out and having to climb a 1 in 6 twisty hill – I did have to stop for a breather half way up. 

All over in a mere 31km at a 15.8km/hr average. Jane tends to lead on the uphills, at least until she has to get off and push, because her lowest gear is higher than mine and I just sit in my lowest gear, but I roll much faster on the downhills because of larger wheels, more weight and less chunky tyres.
