My question from yesterday "Was it a back to work novelty or a psychological change" about getting up and pedalling has well and truely been answered. Back to work novelty it was. A massive struggle to get my arse out of bed and onto the bike this morning, but I did it. Not as cold today as yesterday, still pretty icey though and the journey into work via the City Centre was totally without any Jobys.
The pedal home last night was pretty good too, I've captured the entire ride on my Muvi and will upload that at some point into today's blog. I've got a bit of editing to do obviously as I'll need to get an hours worth of footage into 10 minutes for Youtube purposes. Again, please excuse the panting, heavy breathing, snotting, coughing and general noises you don't want to hear. But I'm not as fit as I could be and it's still bloody hard work! I must work out how to put a sound track on or anything more pleasant than my bodily noises.
The rapidfire shifters, new brake blocks and grips are performing nicely, although the "numb hand" thing is getting to be a bit of an issue, I have well padded grips and gel gloves, other than trying to adjust my riding position I guess I'll have to grin and bear it I suppose. If anyone knows of a numb hand "miracle cure" then please let me know.

And the road part!
