The REDIN Festival and Movember

The Moles near Hindhead
November is often a tricky month for me to keep my motivation for cycling going.

November is all about a combination of colder, damper and darker conditions means a mug of hot chocolate in front of the fire is more tempting than a ride.

Previously Matt has picked an autumnal or wintery month and ridden every day. That’s what REDIN is all about. Ride Every Day In November. The rules are as loose as anyone wants them to be, my interpretation is a minimum of 5 miles counts as a ride.

I have suggested that if it is raining outside and somebody ZWIFTS then that only counts if they post a picture of water being squirted into their faces. That could backfire if we start seeing pictures of moles showering.

The intention is simply to provide a mind game to motivate myself to ride more often. There is also a loose link to “Move for Movember”.

    It’s true! I have been here before, most recently with Rovember in 2018 (article has links to previous attempts) and you can read how I got on in Rovember – how did it go?.

    It’s not an easy thing to do thanks to the cumulative effort. Best advice is 5 miles a day is a sensible limit as much as a minimum, as rest is important.

    But it does keep the wheels turning and helps you tune into changing trail conditions and your winter wardobe needs.

    Good luck all…

    Great idea!
    Do moles hibernate? Moles do not hibernate. It may seem like moles go into hibernation in the winter, because you may not notice them until the weather warms up, but moles remain active all winter long. They simply dig down deeper into the earth and zwift during the colder months.

    Elliot is rocking a great look there with the long socks, bare knees. Just needs a pleated kilt!

    I’m aiming to get some more miles in for winter, but unfortunately cannot commit to everyday. I’m tired after a physical days work.
