Well, I've ordered a road bike and I pick it up on Thursday I test rode several bikes from different shops but ended up going back for the first one I tried. I've been using a hyrbrid and that's fine, but I think a road bike will be better for me. I'll get used to that and then consider cleats, which are the shoes that clip into the pedals.
Shades, there is a duathlon (10K road run, 40K bike, 5K off road run) in Dartington in October which I'm considering, but I won't enter it yet.
I know I'll be working a bit late today so I got a ride in this morning and enjoyed it. I've moved up from 120/359 to 112/365 on that 2.2mile section of road I mentioned, which is turning into my favourite stretch on Strava. I think I can do better though
