Yesterday’s ride just didn’t happen. My thighs were tight, Kenn’s calves were in spasm on and off throughout the day and even walking the dogs was a chore. We decided to rest and not risk tugging something.
Today we didn’t have a plan of what time to ride but mid morning seemed like a plan as the sun came out and we put a wash on so we had an hour or so before needing to hang the clothes. We decided to go to Wymondham, stick a repeat prescription request in for Kenn and then head home via the Wramplingham Road.
I am still not sure about that Sella Italia Proline seat, although it felt better than it did on Sunday. Its been moved forward about 1/8” which has made a difference. Kenn is going to try my Giant seat on his bike to see if that is any better than his old seat that used to be on the Sun. Kenn also says that the hills are less hard work.
It was a good ride, although the first mile and a half was hard work as far as I was concerned. Kenn said that he was having a good time once he got pedaling. As we have seen the weather forecast for tomorrow, we have decided to fit the Giant seat to Kenn’s bike and do a quick 5 miles later today, to build on the good ride. Tomorrow’s forecast is for gale force winds and heavy rain. Not good cycling weather for wuss’s like us.
