June was a great month in the life of MMT. Team MMT gained a new member in the form of Audrey Jane, ‘AJ’ for short. Much less welcome this month was the cold, windy and occasionally wet weather that arrived. Whilst these are ideal conditions for ski bunnies they are lousy conditions for a new father with a cycling addiction. With Mum recovering from the pregnancy, this meant MMT had some serious non-cycling, entirely non-negotiable household duties.
Given this and a very painful but minor injury that kept MMT off the bike for 2 weeks, its a wonder that I got anywhere near 500km this month. Hence my weekly distance count as a distinct dip in it now, marking the first time this year that I had a week of ZERO kilometres ridden. Still I’ve passed 3,500 Km and I’m still about 580 Km ahead of target.
Again I have no events planned for July, as I’ll be glued to the 2016 version of the Tour De France and entering untold levels of sleep deprivation.
Until next blog, ride safe.
