May 2012 - Road Bikes and Time trials

The first week of the month, despite only riding it for 20 miles, I entered the Witham Wheelers 10 mile Time Trial on the new road bike!

The conditions were pretty rough, with swirling wind, fog , wet and poor visibility it was a baptism of fire to this new sport!  I wasn't sure how much quicker the road bike would be than the mountain bike but was pleasantly surprised to end with a time of 30 minutes 34 secs.  This placed me 19th from a field of 28 riders which I was well pleased with overall.

The Time Trial Format is often called the race of truth..... its physically and mentally hard!   But I really enjoyed it!  I can see myself doing much more of this!
