Over the last week I have added a total of 173 miles including those that took me through the 2000 mile mark previously written about. I've also invested in a new pair of shorts having worn through the faithful and very comfortable pair bought for the purpose last year.
If there are any of you out there who suffer from latex allergy and find cycle clothing a nightmare, as I do, then I can certainly recommend Sugoi shorts that can be bought from Wiggle. They have no latex grip strip in the legs and are very comfortable. The elasticated band around the thigh is also good enough to hold the cut off legs of a pair of tracksuit trousers in place, when it is colder. (Leg warmers, as with arm warmers, generally are held in place with latex.)
In anticipation of doing another 100 on Sunday morning, I headed into Norwich today to book the bike in for a service with Andy at Specialised Cycles on Connaught Road, www.specialisedcyclesnorwich.co.uk and then made for my 'favourite' little hill circuit.
Gas Hill and Kett's Hill together make for a thigh burning duo and I went up them both three times. The view up and down Gas Hill shown here looks not unlike how I imagine the Muur to be in Geraardesbergen, but without the cobbles. I dearly hope that it is not this steep!
From here I journeyed home via the University of East Anglia, (UEA) where I met with Laura and viewed the new work of art close to Henry Moore's famous sculpture at the Sainsbury Centre For Visual Arts.
Total now 2100
