It starts here…..
This is an ongoing record of matters pertaining to road cycling. I am based in Suffolk, England, and as I have just taken delivery of a new road bike I thought that this would be a good point to start recording things.
Here is said bike:
I have been riding seriously for most of this year and have been bitten by the bug. Several months later, and two stone lighter, I am now at a point where the new bike is worth having. My old bike, a very entry-level (in fact beginners level) Raleigh Airlite, was too heave and ungainly to continue with in the long term. Well, that’s how I justified it to myself anyway….
So, having made the transition to SPD pedals (pictured) and Specialized BG road shoes, I am now getting real performance out of both my legs and my bike.
