30 Days of riding, days 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16

OK so a rather long update this one.  After last weekend, I'm afraid it was back on the trainer for the next 3 days but upon day 13 this is where sticking to spinning the legs for a full 30 days became a true challenge!

My wife and I had a few vacation days to use up with work and rather than doing the usual stuff we decided to do a mini road trip and make the drive down to slightly warmer climes and headed south to Charleston, South Carolina.

Charleston Harbor
Charleston was a great place with lots of extremely interesting history and style of architecture that I'd never experienced before.  It also had a bustling nightlife and some great shopping.  We definitely weren't bored.

Anyway niceties over it was time to focus on exercising and maintaining the riding, thankfully the hotel had a gym/exercise room.  I must admit though I was a little disappointed to find a solitary recumbent exercise bike.  So here was my home and my go to solution for the next few days.

Not a position I am used to when cycling
The hotel gym offered a single recumbent

As much as I was hoping for something a little more exciting in the hotel gym than the recumbent to pass the next few days I have to say the view from our hotel room more than made up for it.  Who wouldn't want to wake up to this on a morning?

 Driving back we broke up the journey with an overnight stay in Raleigh, NC.  Again back to the hotel gym and this time yet another recumbent.

As much I have enjoyed the mini get away I can't wait to get some more proper riding in!  Watch this space as the quest continues, hopefully with a more Adrenalin fueled next update.
