A new training regime!

Dear Reader

The training has been going well, I've not been out on the bike that much this year as it's too bloody cold, but I've been to the gym nearly everyday & am eating well!

I've been fiddling with the computer again & have now mapped out a number of routes I want to do regularly when the weather warms up.  The program I have discovered now shows the hills as percentages or the severity.  As you can see from below I have included the worst 20 miles of the route across Dartmoor & you can see why I need to practice hills.  Dartmoor is roughly 26 miles across & will take us about 3 hours!

Out via Sevenoaks 38 miles

Out via Maidstone 61.3 miles

Out via Ashford 104 miles

Oh dear, Dartmoor look at the hills!!
