There are a few segments I’m looking at bettering this year. Some I’ve been trying to beat for. While and failed…
First, I want to beat my Personal best time on Bilton Lane. This is an awesome sprint segment, and apart from the small speed bumps, and dodgy drivers, some speed can be gained. My personal Best is currently 1:36, with a average speed of 25.3mph. And that was on the 26th October 2014.
I am convinced, if I keep myself in an aero position and keep up the cadence, I can beat it. It proves elusive though. I’ve come close, 1:37, but be damned if I can beat 1:36.
The other main segment I would like to beat is Skipton Road. This is a difficult one due to traffic lights, and traffic. My previous best time was 6:13, average speed of 13.6 mph. I know I have done better than this, but that was when I worked in Starbeck, and came home when the roads where really quiet on a night.
So they are the two segments I really want to beat. We shall see how close I can get, and when I beat them,… 🙂 My only other target is to generally get faster, and be able to pace myself for longer.
