I take my commuting bike into Park Bikeworks in Derby. It’s not the most accessible of places being in the city centre, either by bike or car but they are open from 7.30am which is a big help. Obviously I have to drive there, what with having no chain, and after dropping it off I’m at work for 8.10. I even get a parking place.
I enter both L and I in Nottingham University’s Life Cycle Sportive which is the week before the Vitruvian.So will be good practice for me.
I offer L the standard two week cooling off period in case she changes her mind but she says she doesn’t require it. Says she needs to cram all the cycling practice in that she can get especially gear changing practice.
