First shopping run.
I hit the shops today and loaded up the trike with the usual amount of food and drink. As mentioned previously the trip home is the hardest as it is mostly up hill but it certainly was not hard today! On the long stretches were I used to drop down to my lowest gears and travel about 4 or 5 km/h I was today going about 18 to 22 km/h! It was exhilarating stuff! Trip time was 10.44 minutes at an average speed of 17.5km/h where it previously took around 19 or 20 minutes with an average speed of around 10km/h. And the good part is it is still a workout for me as I am still pedalling but doing so in my high gears.
