8am Sunday Cycling with the Time Trial bike!

Too much fun!

If you couldn't tell already (by my numerous mentions), I LOVE the Time Trial bike! It's awesome, fast, fun and weird looking! 

Today's ride was a somewhat medium paced one (around 30km/h avg) with a few speedy laps through Qala and Xewkija. Also averaged a speed of around 37km/h for a 20km interval which was very...tiring and well, fun!

As time went by, the wind started to pick up and this meant that my bike was now acting like a sailing boat. Wind pushing in from the right meant that I will be thrown to the left hand side at a vigorous pace. 

As you could probably tell, this is extremely scary. 

Nothing beats the feeling of getting out of your saddle to push harder and suddenly you feel a urge to eat up the wall on the left, cool stuff.

Anyway, we cycled for 91km which were over (sadly) very quickly as with all group rides, time flies when you're having fun! 

It was a fun ride...until..Domenic the Destroyer decided to steal my chocolate bar and in the process, breaking some other stuff!

And then...we stopped for a coffee break, IT'S BEEN A WHILE!

Signing Out!
