Something is up - not sure whether it's the cold, the poorly maintained bike, the chronic lack of sleep, but I just could not hold any decent speed this morning. Trailed a chap in jeans (over tights) on a blue Ribble wonter trainer, with one left hand pannier, all the way through Brixton to Southwark, and it was all I could do to keep him in sight. A pannier ffs
Guarantee it's the sleep. When Fugglets wake me up regularly in the night, my cycling goes to pot. Couple of decent nights and all is right again.
I'm sure it is. Trouble is finding that couple of nights. Currently running on about 5-6 hrs a night, and fending off yet another cold brought home by the little plague-bearers.
Good luck. We had three months where every night was broken. You don't expect it when they are coming up to 1 and have been going through the night for 6 months. It will come soon enough though.
