I only did one out of my intended two days of cycling this week. Cycling part of the way to work, that is. So I decided last night to rectify that today.
My morning commute is 18.5 km. Eventually I want to be able to cycle all the way to work at least once, which boils down to 50km. So for today I picked a route that’s in between them. 32.5 km in 1.5 hours: some 21.5 km/h average speed.
Perfect sunny weather, if a bit cold and quite windy. Enjoyable. The landscape is beautiful in autumn. Cycling along a big canal and on a river dike. Two big railway bridges. Ah, life is good. And getting those benefits and in the meantime improving my health is a good combination.
