...my life as a cyclist
So I’ve been riding my new bike for a while now and I have to say I’m really enjoying being back on a track bike. Not only do I feel my self getting stronger but I’m focusing on enjoying my rides.
Even when I go out for lap in the park in full kit it’s nice not having a computer in front of me to distract me. The focus is purely on the flow of me and the bike.
I even did my first race. Lost, but hey I had a blast.
Take the time to ride your bike and enjoy the time you spend on it. But remember, if you’re anything like myself and you ride all the time, take a break once in a while… even a day will rekindle your love.

My love of my bike has been restored and all is well in the universe. My homie Mat suggested a really good cleaning of my chain and he was right. Overnight soak in WD-40, thorough dry, a good lube and wha-la noise gone! I’m back to riding my bike without feeling self concious every time I pass somebody in the bike lane.
