Nearly Beat the hour on the bent

The old legs were feeling a bit tired when I got up this morning.  A pretty hard ride on the tandem yesterday followed by sitting in a cinema for 3 hours certainly didn’t help with the recovery. I have also ridden pretty hard for the last 5 days (taking advantage of my vacation). The weather forecast for today was rain but it was actually warm and sunny when I went out with light winds. The sun on my legs made them feel good so i rode pretty hard (especially on the climbs) to see what time I could do.  I was pleased to see I knocked nearly 3 minutes off my best time for the loop.

Goal for next year has to be to to beat the hour on the Bacchetta. I reckon if I hadn’t hit a few lights on red I would have done it as although I didn’t actually have to stop I had to coast for a while. I reckon my bent legs are coming back.
