Wednesday 13 July.

A cooler ride into work so wore yellow running jacket – but that got me quite hot.  Never mind.  Felt tired and dehydrated at the end of working day so took it very easy on way home and still did 50 mins.  Think the gloves and awareness of riding style are helping me reduce pressure on left hand and numbness.

Thinking 3 days cycling in a row is enough for the first week back on a bike so may take the tram tomorrow.  After work we’re driving off to a long weekend of 3 back to back Pondlife gigs across England, so the tram will give me a rest before that.

Nice ride in/out of work.  Detoured on the way in to get some gel gloves.  Hope they help, together with adapting my riding style to minimise pressure on left hand.

Monday 11 July, nice ride into town.  Tackled Park Square roundabout with the traffic lights not working!  On way home found a cycle path around Park Square and under Parkway to get me on Cricket Inn Road, for another nice ride home.  Not bothered about times but did 50 mins in the morning and 46 mins on way home.

Find my left hand ring finger feels a bit numb afterwards with the vibration – roads are very poor.  Might need some padded gloves, but certainly don’t want to loosen my grip on the handlebars!
