I was sort of planning to go parkrun today but the weather forecast looked good so last night OH suggested a bike ride. It worked out well because I managed a bit of a lie in to 9am and made it out the door by 9.30!
I was glad that the roads and park were quiet because OH took me on a route using roads I wouldn’t use when alone and doesn’t listen to ‘I’ll get off and cross the road by foot’. All good experience for me and increased confidence at certain junctions! We went to Hyde Park for a loop and then crossed under Wellington Arch and down round St James Park for a bit of sight seeing in the sunshine.
My hybrid bike is fairly light and fast but I was having to pedal away like mad at times to keep up with OH! In the end I sent him the long way round on the road at times while I took the cycle path. I did suggest that I’ll have to progress to a speedy road bike at some stage to keep up, he suggested better gear selection!
