I rode my last TT at 40 (the last evening club "10" of 2009), did a lifetime PB and immediately retired. No slow decline for meMy inspiration for 2021 is the same as it has been every year since 1967. That is to ride a few time trials and as an oldie now, to try and beat my age standard for a 10 mile TT.
Some years, life gets in the way, but most years have achieved it.
A good friend of mine 'only' managed 14.5K last yearHis target was 18Kwow
5000 miles would be a great but quite a challenging target.
New bike ? That’s teasing, we need more details.....My goals are to get through the year in one piece - preferably with all my loved ones intact. After that, to cover 7,500km - 8,000km (5,000 miles) would be great - if I could include some hill riding in that it would be a massive plus, but it’s notoriously flat where I live so I’ll struggle with that too often. Also I’d like to break the 20mph avg. barrier (over 50km +) constantly. 2020 saw nearly all my rides high 18’s and 19’s and tantalisingly close to 20mph but never quite got there. New bike on order, and a hard winters training had better pay dividends, or there’ll be trouble
Oooh very nice. I think I remember, did you start a thread about the Pinarello and another option ? If it was then I said the Pinarello.A Pinarello F12 Dogma .... in for a penny, in for a pound .... what’s your new bike ? - the one awaiting an outing.
