Steady but no snap

pothole 2Same ride again this morning. Steady but still no real snap. I tried to ride a steady pace today. The last few days I have ridden the first three or four splits at a higher pace than the rest. The pace has faded towards the end. Today I set out a bit slower but maintained the pace. Splits were between 18:43 and 19:15. The quickest was the last. This gives me an average speed of around 25km/hr give or take. This route is relatively flat and at sea level. It is paved but the pavement is often crap – so potholes and lumpy bits. It is also in traffic, so some starts and stops and some idiot avoidance. The temperature was 28C when I started and 34C when I finished. It pays to get an early morning start. I expect the riding conditions are much easier than most of what we will get on the Tour. So still lots to do.

Don’t forget to donate to the Sickle Cell Foundation of Tanzania.
