RTW 31.12.2008

By Allah's grace, yesterday's RTW was not the last for this year.
Today I did it again. hehe...

Well, I used to be anxious and prepared heavily for RTW on Sats. Now it could be second nature, but still with adequate preparation, and alertness on riding safety (always, top priority).

Stats today (to):
  • Riding to work, distance covered 12.81 km.
  • Average speed is at 20.6 km/h (improvement of 0.5 km/h over yesterday's)
  • Max speed 37.3 km/h
  • Travel time 37 min 15 sec (improvement of 1 minute and 15 seconds. Wuiyooo...)
This morning I inflated the tires to 40 psi. I guess that helped. The next, perhaps I'll change to faster rolling tires - Maxxis Larsen TT's that I have at home doing nothing.

Number of vehicles encountered: 61 (only the ones going past me, as a measure of how safe the route is). Hence, average of 5 vehicles per km rode.
Number of good doggies: 8
