….Bikes!”

So I followed her advice…

New Bike - Trek Domane 2 Series

New Bike – Trek Domane 2 Series

I collected my new bike from my local bike shop yesterday evening and took it out for a ‘short’ spin this morning.

What a revelation – much more comfortable than my old ‘cross’ bike smoothing out the ruts and imperfections in the road surfaces.  Riding position was much more comfortable too.

Of course, it’s weight is about 50% of the old bike, so it’s pretty fast too – on a windless day I broke a load of my previous best wind assisted segment times on Strava.

Bought a ‘camel back’ today with the intention of taking a longer ride at the weekend – forecast is excellent – sunny and hot, so plenty of fluid will be necessary.

There’s still room in my basement for one more bike……

    Awesome! I look forward to hearing how you get on at the weekend. I’m planning 1000m ascent if the thunder storms hold off 🙂 Julian accidentally bought a new bike too…

    Like from me too! Rob, Tim, Kirsty and I had an epic cycle in the Alps last week so v tempted by a new bike too – city hybrids are not efficient! X
