I didn’t snap on my cycling computer on my commuter this morning. I trained on the road bikes this weekend and forgot to switch it over.
Riding with the computer is a workout no matter how hard I work. I am always conscious on my current speed and elapsed time over my measured routes. Even if I want to relax, I work.
Today was different. No computer. I was more relaxed. Did 30+ km at a steady pace. Not fast. And, not slow.
Strava makes every ride a race. A computer turns a ride into a workout. Sometimes it is simply nice to ride.
