New Bike!

Dawes Giro 200Earlier this week my new road bike arrived!  It’s a Dawes Giro 200.  It fell within my budget for a beginner’s road bike (£400).  I decided to get a turbo trainer too, so I can train indoors if I’m babysitting the kids.

 

The turbo trainer allows you to set a resistance against the rear wheel and cycle away in a fixed position for as long as you want (or can bear).  There’s a shifter you can attach to the handle bars to adjust this, just like a gear changer.

So far I’ve only done a single 1 hour session on this, but it worked well and I expect I’ll be spending a lot more time on it over the coming weeks!
