Tonight was the second night that I went for a bike ride with Andrew. This time established a good route. The route basically goes around the new hospital here in Fort St John.
Now Andrew makes fun of the fact that it took us 40 minutes to go about 8km, but I am proud of myself. Last summer I use to ride 7kms to work and back everyday and it normally took about 25 minutes. So for only the second ride of the season I don’t think that is to bad, plus this route has more hills and inclines.
Thanks to a neat little iPhone app we just got called Cyclemeter, I can now track all the rides. It times the ride and uses the GPS to track the speed and where I go.
I really like the route we took this evening. I have decided to, instead of going further each time, to try and improve my time on this route. I am hoping that this will strengthen my legs, which then take me further.
