So on Saturday a friend asked if I wouldn't mind taking a quick look over her bike to make sure that everything was in working order etc. It has been in storage over the last few months and she wanted me to check that nothing had been damaged in various moves.
I pumped up the tires and made sure the brakes were functioning and then went on a little ride to test. Trouble is that I am in the middle of my final Ironman build and I had a 5 hour, 100 mile ride planned....so off I went!
I think the saddle was a little low and that's why my knees were aching afterwards, the gears weren't the perfect ratio for 100 miles but they got me through, and the 38cm frame gave me a nice standover clearance. Here is me after the ride.....not sure the bike is still in working order after that :-)
- Ride 4 of the #festive500 with crisp and windy conditions....but look at that sky! Both indoor and outdoor riding has its place but you can't get the same views indoors. . . . . #parvillacycles #IFB #iridespecialized #specializedallez #cycling #gopro #swimbikerun #triathlon

- In the world of COVID restrictions not all #coffeeride stops are glamorous! Rode out to @riseupcoffee in Edgewater, awesome coffee as always but with limited capacities it was had while basking in the morning sun in the parking lot. Life could be worse.... . . . #parvillacycles #IFB #riseupcoffee #iridespecialized #cycling #cyclingphotos #swimbikerun #triathlon #ironmantri #ultramantri #xterratri
