Going like the Clappers

I took up the chance of a ride with the Tiptree Velo midweek riders, not convinced it was the best idea but man it was fun.

A loop of Abberton Reservoir and extending down to D’Arcy and back along Tudwick road for a total of 35.5km at an average of 29.6 km/h is SIGNIFICANTLY faster than any riding of recent times for me.

Good to know it is in the legs and after the first 30 minutes I was actually coming good. I was gasping at the back a little but when the hammer had to go down there was still a bit left, looking forward to picking up the pace with that lot on the odd Sunday.

It was also the first outing in a while for the carbon Domane which I have now set up with the fast rolling Panaracer Gravel King 28’s, very nice ride indeed!
