20 KM Dusk Bike Ride Banciao Yonghe

I’ve been off the saddle for a few months due to injuries. In December, I sprained my ankle somewhat seriously. In January, I had surgery and in February, I had a big scooter accident. I’ve been itching to get back on the bike, but my right knee hasn’t fully recovered but today, I felt like going out on a short ride. While I had initially planned on doing almost double, I decided to be conservative. That and the fact that the Xindian riverside park was filled with families made me opt for a shorter ride.

It’s somewhat annoying to ride on the weekends because of this. It’s hard to hit your stride. Anyway, I completed this loop in 49:42. My average speed was 24.2kph. My average HR was at 165bpm, which shows you how out of shape I am right now. My max speed was 35.2kph. This week, my goal is to go out at least 4× and see how I feel. I’d also like to ride to Beitou on Tuesday. I don’t have any afternoon classes, so it would be a good day to go out.
