Have fallen in with a crowd that do cycle paths, quiet roads etc. on a Sunday Morning.
I initially tagged along as I am not motivated to put the miles in on my own. Using an old Steel mtb with commuting tires seems to be working OK for this apart from spinning out at times.
Seems they also do Audax and I think that it might be something I would like to try both as continued mileage and also a goal to aim for in the guise of some of the ones that would be too much for me at present.
I have the feeling that this is a good an excuse as any to get a new bike. Having never owned or even sat on a road bike I have only a rough idea from the online guides what size I should be looking at. 6 foot tall with little 32 inch legs. I am thinking 56????
Would like Shand Stoater but SWMBO will not countenance that. Croix looking favourite with Pinnacle in reserve. Cant sit on one as I am overseas.
