After much talk of potential new bikes and having a bike fit, I’ve finally got round to taking some positive action. Ooo-rah!

The straw that broke the camel’s back was some straight-talking tough love from the readers of my last post, which essentially boiled down to:
- Man the fug up;
- Get a bike fit before the 100 mile ride that might otherwise break your knee;
- Get some pedals and shoes appropriate to road cycling; and
- Dry those tears.
I followed that advice to the letter. And then bought a bike as well.
