I Like to Ride my Bicycle…

God damn it I have missed cycling so much. I got back on it on Saturday and today after a long (for me) time. I came in just above and just under an average of 12mph respectively. That is slow, however today especially I deliberately picked hills. The beauty of where I live is that there are serious hills in every direction. Fifteen to twenty degree climbs are not unusual. This will make for an interesting experiment in weight loss. I have maintained my weight whilst not being very active of late so I hope that upping my calorie burn and in particular doing absolute buggers of resistance rides will have a serious effect on that front. Even without my love of cycling, the hills are still cool because it does not matter how steep the incline, coasting downhill is the ultimate payoff for the hard work on the climb.
