A little 8 mile hop.

I can’t believe how my stamina and fitness are improving. This little 8 mile ride would have killed me at one point but now I can do it on the DaHon without much concern. I’ve even got myself a new bag for it – it’s meant to go under the saddle on the seat post,Continue reading “A little 8 mile hop.”

Amazing weather we’ve been having!

We’re definitely having some amazing weather right now. Plenty of opportunity for some great bike rides. Biking is one of the ways I’m improving my fitness. Considering how unfit I have actually been at some points in my life I’m determined now as I approach 50 to never let myself get like that again. MyContinue reading “Amazing weather we’ve been having!”

The newest bike.

It’s been a bit of an unlucky one so far, but I do love it. It’s an Orange frame from the late 90’s I’m led to believe – but it has been chopped around a little. In one weekend I’ve snapped a derailleur mount, and now today I’ve now got a puncture and had toContinue reading “The newest bike.”

To continue a theme.

The fitness kick continues. I’m now over 5 miles on a ride and unlike previous rides I’m now no longer finishing exhausted. It’s amazing how quick your fitness starts to return when you make the demand of your body. My waist hasn’t shrunk much, but I’ve noticed that the wobbly leftover of my old fatContinue reading “To continue a theme.”

It’s a far cry from a few years ago.

I’ve just done my health check-up. Blood pressure 113/77, SpO2 99%, Stress in the green. ECG pretty much as expected – no signs of any fibrillation. I know I’m still overweight and I’m taking steps to deal with that. Getting a new set of scales was a big step – I realised my old onesContinue reading “It’s a far cry from a few years ago.”

Back on the wagon.

After a rather shocking 3.4kg of weight gain over Christmas, I’m back on the wagon to becoming a healthy weight again. I’m now just 1.6kg up on my late November weight and as you can see from my picture my rather slimmer profile is back. Amusingly every time I post a picture in this suitContinue reading “Back on the wagon.”

Hatfield – the third.

Having looked through my photos and my timeline it appears to be the third time we’ve played Hatfield Main club. A leftover from the old Hatfield Main pit and now standing at the edge of a housing estate and with miles and miles of desolation and spoil heaps on the other side. Regardless of locationContinue reading “Hatfield – the third.”
