I took a ride up to Nylstroom (There and back 82 km) last Saturday. Stopped at Jimmy Cycles to get Shammy cream. I said to Jimmy that I would like to get a heart rate monitor however have not got my head around the price yet. He went behind the counter and started scratching. He pulled out a heart rate monitor and said take it. I asked how much he said no, some customer did not want it any more.
Well I must really say thanks. I am planning on doing some training so that when I do hit the long roads. I will have enough in me to do the distance planned without injury or pain. The idea is to get pleasure out of adventure touring.
