My Planned Route for wednesday 18th August

I have been thinking for awhile that I wanted to cycle over to where my Sister in Law lives, which is Chalk farm North London. She lives about fourteen miles away from me. The route shown is 13.2 miles that is because it is to where she works.

I wont be leaving till 4PM which means that I will be cycling through central London during the busy times should be an experience.

I will be taking a camera to take some pictures of some of the London Landmarks particularly for Stout Biking the Bay

New Brakes Blocks on my cheap Mountain Bike

I haven't ridden much the last few days apart from a couple little shopping trips.

The last time I rode my mountain bike I realised the brakes were not doing there job properly so needed to get some new brake blocks, the trouble is I am a virgin mechanic, anyway ordered two sets of brake blocks from Chain Reaction Cycles seeing has the bike only cost me £56 I wasn't going to spend a fortune on Brake Blocks I know they are important read the one review on the site and he said basically they do what they say on the tin.

They cost me the princely sum of £4.00 for two pairs in there sale plus free p&p. RRP is £4.99 for one pair.

Anyway fitted them in about twenty minutes, but they were binding, after some lunch and a quick scour of the Internet YouTube is my best friend adjusted them, they are spot on now so well pleased. Brake Blocks

A blog I have just started reading The London Cyclist don't be put of by the name you don't have to come from London to enjoy.

Commute to and from work

No drama's going to work felt a bit tired in the legs going in which is reflected in my top speed.

Coming home no drama's apart from the fact it was tipping it down so cycled home in me shorts and used my Aldi £4.99 light shower proof jacket seemed ok except I was wet everywhere else.

Although fitted my cadence sensor Saturday was working before I tightened the cable ties up, but when I went for my first ride it wasn't working, but with a little adjustment here and there it seems to be working ok.
