OUT with the platforms, IN with the clipless!! FINALLY!!! Now I have nothing to blame but myself whenever someone beats me on an uphill. As mentioned before, I have a pair of bike shoes that are 1 size too small. It’s still on sale in Kijiji if anyone’s interested!! I ended up buying another pair at the Bike Show back in October. My bro recently bought a new set of pedals & I purchased his old ones at a
low very low price. Awesome! I can’t wait until next year to give them a spin!!
Time for an official closing. Temperature is dropping, winter jacket is out, Santa is coming….. & roadie is in the basement. So sad.
This season marked my 2nd year of biking & my 1st year on a road bike. I had the best time – absolutely NO regrets or any unfinished business. It turned out better than I could’ve ever imagined. It’s mostly due to all the amazing people I met along the way who share the same
passion addiction as me & kept me company on long rides. I also rode A LOT more mileage, had better pace control (thanks to my cyclocomputer), & conquered some challenging routes & conditions. I’m starting to steer away from being a “bike noob“.
I’ll be spending the next 6 months prepping for the next bike season ….mapping out bike routes, spinning at CYKL to build up my endurance, & registering for 2012 bike events!! In the meantime, I really need to get those towels & chain-cleaner out for a final bike cleanup!!
