Not sure why but this morning I smashed the time it takes me to cycle to work; 23 minutes and 40 seconds. From memory that is around a minute and a half faster than the last time I timed myself. Was it the new bike? Was it my feet being locked into the pedals? Was it my increased level of fitness? Or was it because this morning, for the very first time, I decided to cycle in just Lycra (below the belt that is). I dispensed with the over shorts and took a plunge into the world of being a Lycra cyclist. It is look that I could get used to….

  1. No man can retain his ego in lycra. Grasshopper you have taken the first step to enlightenment ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I was expecting a photo of mangled metal and was disappointed it wasn’t about that. Then I hoped for a photo of your first time in Lycra then I was disappointed again. Or would I have been more disappointed in the photo?

    • It couldn’t have been the Lycra; I dispensed with the black shiny stuff and just wore the shorts on the commute home and I broke that pb time as well! 22 minutes!

What do you think?
