Tyred

Bikey is in for repairs and servicing at present, so I'm gratefully borrowing A's bike for the daily commute to work.

Whilst it's otherwise fine and particularly robust, the knobbly off-road tyres (max. pressure: 40psi) have a massively greater rolling resistance than Bikey's 65psi near-slicks, so this morning's workout was rather more strenuous than usual!

If anyone reading this cycle-commutes on a mountain bike with knobblies, as I used to before buying a hybrid (mountain bike profile, but optimised for road use), you mightn't realise the difference proper road tyres make.  I'd strongly recommend trying them.
