Site Meeting

No pedal today, I have a site meeting to go to.

Last nights pedal was very warm, to coin a phrase "I was sweating for England" There was nothing much to report about the pedal which was the Harbourne, QE Hospital, and Bristol Road route.

I had a bit of chat with a MTB Cop at Selly Oaks lights, considering I was in T Shirt and shorts pedalling a road bike and he was all kitted up for combat in Helmund Province riding a fully loaded MTB he looked remarkably fresh! Nice bloke though. I won't mention that he tries to set off the speed camera down by the college when he's pedalling downhill!

Stats here:
Ride Time: 44:16
Stopped Time: 0:00
Distance: 11.82 miles
Average: 14.58 miles/hr
Fastest Speed: 45.30 miles/hr
Climb: 604 feet
Calories: 797

Weight is static, not surprising really considering the crappy pedalling week I've had at only 76 miles. But my waist size I discovered is down to 40" now when got my new shorts for the summer. My old ones were hanging off me even with a belt!
