I hit the 8000km mark on Strava this morning and I’m now up to 8055km this year, already 2470km on my new bike.
I love how fast it is and how comfortable at the same time. The Grand Prix 4-Seasons are surprisingly comfy tires, even at 7.5bar. A lot nicer to ride than Schwalbe Marathon Plus at 5-6bar, not to mention much faster.
When I got my new bike my average speed was 24,5(ish)km/h over the course of ~5500km (which, to be fair, includes a pretty slow January and February due to weather). It’s now sitting at 25,9km/h and over the last four weeks it was just below 29km/h which includes a couple of slow and relaxed rides with my brother and my parents.
Tomorrow is a public holiday in North Rhine-Westphalia and I have the Friday off so I’m going to add a few hundred kilometers over the weekend.
For Friday I have a ~165km ride planned with my brother in law and tomorrow I plan on doing a short recovery ride at a fairly easy pace, maybe 60km just spinning in an easy gear.
