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!
