Bought a magazine yesterday published by Cycling Weekly – it was a special called “Health & Fitness”. It certainly works as I lost 6 pounds when I took it to the till! Gripe apart it has some interesting bits & pieces inside if you can ignore the acres of Lycra that adorn the pages. One interesting website I picked up was Map My Ride. I’ve registered with the site and have been able to put my daily commute on the site – click here to see it. It puts the distance at 10.97 kilometres…. which more or less ties in with the distance I measured using the CatEye “thing” (see below) which was from the middle of Reading Bridge, about 1 km from home and was 9.85 km. I’ll continue to fiddle with the site to see if it any use when planning the longer route to Italy.
