Cycling in new boots
Went for a ride in my new boots this morning. I adjusted the route I took yesterday to Charlton House so that I had fewer hills. I went all the way to North Greenwich tube station. The Dome always looks fab in sunlight.
My time is getting a little faster, 45 minutes instead of an hour one way. I also stopped to take photos. I still have to get off the top half of hills but I’ve learned how to turn around in a small space. (Still not steady).
The boots were fairly comfortable (new leather needs to be softened), but it took a little while to get used to the feel of them on the pedal.
