Outdoors? In November? Unheard of.
Well, not quite. There were plenty of other cyclists out today. A lovely dinner time spin. Nice and sunny, a bit wet under the wheels, and a tad nippy. But in my three layers, rubber gloves, and
long johns bib tights I was toasty. Nice and toasty.
Rather than risk getting my lovely new pristine white cycling loafers all filthed up and covered in grime, I decided I’d wear my old pair. Aside from not wanting to get my new shoes dirty (how tragic) I also wanted to see how they compared, cleat-wise, to my new pair.
Well, it turns out I have a much better fit on my left side on my old pair than I do on the left side on my new pair. Crazy. But, also, it should (I hope) mean I can do a bit of tape measure madness and find / transfer the exact position over, somehow, to the new shoe. And then both my new shoes should be perfecto!
That’s the plan, anyway.
I don’t know if I’m going to go out again tomorrow.
If the weather holds, it would seem really crazy not to get out again, even for just a light ride. I’m a bit concerned I do have quite sore knees this week, and that’s almost certainly down to the change in cleat position on the new shoes. But missing out on the outdoors will haunt me once the rain and bitter cold return.
Overall then, really enjoyed my jolly out today. Get a bit of sunshine, top up the old sun tan, or would that be red face from the wind chill? God knows. It was good to get away from the desk, that’s all I know.
