London to Cambridge bike ride. Twice.

Did a big old bike ride last week. Cambridge to London via some nice sweeping country lanes and then back to Cambridge again along the official London to Cambridge route. Apart from a few short rides for an hour or two here and there, it was the first ‘proper’ ride I’ve done on a road bike.

Surprisingly, legs were fine pretty much all the way, although I was starting to run out of steam for the last few miles. What I struggled with most was the pain in my arms and hands; I’m pretty sure my bars could do with being closer and a touch higher, although for the first few hours they felt absolutely fine.

Covered 104 miles in total, here’s a little map of the route.
