I guess it serves me right for ridiculing the weather gypsies on Monday. Today the forecast was for 60% chances of showers so I decided to 'take my chances' and bike to work. The morning commute was pretty uneventful with just a small drizzle that didn't even make me damp. The evening commute, however, was a different story. I was dripping wet when I got in:
Don't worry, I didn't soak poor Chester just for the picture, this is a picture from the last time he went to the Vet and had an 'accident' on the way back. I've been meaning to find a way to use it :) So here are the details of the ride:
Did you notice the maximum speed of over 100km/h. This must be a software glitch, I may be fast but I wouldn't say I am that fast.
On the positive side, I had a bike clinic at work on Tuesday and the very helpful bike specialist told me that my knee pain may be caused by a maladjusted seat. He gave me tips about my legs being 98% extended (I'm not sure what that 2% really means!) and also how to bring it back a bit so that my knee is aligned with the middle of the pedal at the middle point of the rotation. I raised the seat a bit and today the soreness is nowhere near as much as it was before. When I found my allen key set, I will also push the seat backward a bit. Who would have thought half an inch would make that much of a difference (now, behave people, I know what you are thinking and it's not pretty!!). Hopefully that is a sign that I am fully healed and having the seat a bit higher may mean more riding time with less injuries.
