Another mixed bag of local circuits to get up to 100 kilometers in the week including an interesting ride away from home.
A different start to the week.
In January 2017 Robert Marchand set a new cycling record for his age group. In fact, a new category had to be created for him. At 105 years old he had cycled a verified 22.547 kilometers in one hour around the French national velodrome in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines west of Paris to set his record. Since reading that I have been wondering how many I can knock out at the Longford velodrome. So on Monday I took the Brompton along and had a go.
Total for week : 132k Total for year : 365k
Vivente : 101k Brompton : 31k
The weather this week has been up close to 30°C early in the week and got hotter as the week went on – eventually we even had a 36°C day with a strong dose of humidity to flatten our spirits.
Early morning – getting ready for a day harvesting along Bishopsbourne Road.
Week total : 115 kilometers. 50% on Vivente, 50% on Brompton
The 115 kilometers were cycled sharing riding duties between V and B – almost exactly 50% for each bike. Generally the rides were local ones with the exception of January 7th approx 20k event in the Port Sorell area.
