Speed = distance over time

I just worked out the distance of one of my cycling routes using this. The route is one of the medium-length ones I do in terms of time and distance, and works out at nearly 24 miles (taking just over an hour and a half).

Which means, over the last few days, I must have covered about 90 miles - possibly more - on the bike, mainly in the evenings after work.

I'm quite pleased about that, actually.



(I was originally going to call this post velo-gubbed, but wondered if that might be too cheeky)

Sheesh! Here I was all imprssed withmyself becuase I have a nice leisurely 25 min cycle to and from work along the seafront everyday. An hour and a half Trousers? Your leg muscles will match your arms soon! :) I know, I know...they probably already do...

Of course, lakeland poet/zola?, isn't that what cycling is all about?

Indeed, merk!

It's still impressive, dj, and I'm quite envious of the idea of cycling along the seafront...

nmj, it's just one of those silly things - using your blog title would have fitted this post perfectly, but I just felt more comfortable making reference to it instead since I didn't get the chance to ask first (I can be overbearingly courteous like that!). Never imagined you as a geek :)

It's been a few years since I did any skiing b-byrd, more's the pity - it's as exhilarating as cycling, probably more so..
