So as part of my move to Manchester I now ride a bike most days either as part of my commute or just to get into town.
This new section on my blog will record my thoughts regarding my cycling adventures.
As recommended by Julio d’Escrivan I have been using Strava to track my rides and while Strava is designed for athletes I have found it very useful.
While I have found it interesting to see how much distance I am covering I have found that the ‘gamification’ of my journeys has added a very enjoyable aspect to them and driven to ride faster and get fitter. I am however very conscious of the fact that this gamification could prompt me to take risks while cycling so I am very careful to avoid that.
