The Reluctant Cyclist Strikes Back

on August 19, 2011 in Outdoor Activities

Well I got to work, so I’ve got to get back!

The intelligent route obviously didn’t work, so maybe its time to try brute force and ignorance…

The route I use when I’m driving is fairly straight, but has a climb up a hill each way.

Using a combination of ride a bit, push a bit I got up the hill, but riding the last bit tired me out a lot more than I expected.

Reaching the highest point of my route, I decided to stop for a moment to catch my breath. Coming to a stop outside the Post Office I put my leg down only to have it decide it wasn’t playing. Slowly, still sat on the bike I keeled over and was left horizontal on the grass verge, people in cars waving to me as they went past.

However, despite the pushing and lying down, I made it home in 35 minutes 😀
