I have an ear worm. It wriggles around in my head. I try to whistle its tune but still it persists. It’s just a few lines from Fame; it must have been the last song on the radio last night.
As the song plays in my head, I notice my legs are spinning rhythmically. I have finally found the smooth cadence I have longed for all these years. I’m finding it easier to ride farther and more comfortably now that I have found a rhythm. Despite cycling my whole life, it’s only recently that I’ve really sorted my cadence and endurance issue out. Previously, I was always a big gear pusher, rather than a small gear spinner.
After 30km my Fame ear worm is suddenly replaced with a few lines from Same Love. The few bars of that song then stay in my head until I get home. At least it’s a better song than Fame.
It was great to be back on my road bike for only the first or second time this month. I need to get some miles in because I have a 360km Audax ride in just under a month.
Total: 59.4km road cycle
