will it ever stop?
it was a rather nippy wind as well. i'm still thawing out.
Not as windy as it has been, except it is snowing. No cycling today that's for sure.
It's driving me up the wall, racing day's have been windy, training days have been windy, commuting has been windy. And if its not windy it's wet and windy, so training kind of goes out the window and just becomes a ride as I don't really want to be blown off on the wet roads
Fnarr! Fnarr!, Warf! Warf!, K-Woo! K-Woo!
You been at the Curried beans again then BTFB?
I'm glad of the group riding yesterday...we were packed pretty tightly and it sheltered me a bit...
Ordinarily I would agree, but I got back on the bike after three weeks off on Saturday and I rather enjoyed it. I even did half an hour of hill work waiting for my sons' piano lesson to finish and it felt kind of good.
Roll on those still sunny days.
I chickened out during the last two or three days of ind...but today I set out into oblivion determined not to be defeated...I managed 20 miles before I'd had enough...such a shame 'cos the sun is shining and the sky is blue
Wimp! Some of us were out doing a time trial at the weekend!
Some of us came last!
It was good to get out in light winds yesterday after what seemed like weeks of gales. It wasn't all good though, it started snowing 25 miles from home.
Some of us rode into the prevailing wind up a number of hills. And then found one tea stop was full of the Lanterne Rouge CC, and the other one was full of everyone and their dog buying lunch for their mums.
Sorry to hear you came last Waffles.
I'm sure there's an innuendo to be gleaned there...
Nope, can't come up with one.
Why thank you. Being last doesn't actually bother me one iota. I have no illusions about my cycle fast ability (none) and the reasons I'm doing some short time trials (10-milers) are:-
I like being on my bike
I hate going to the gym
Pushing myself a bit harder on the bike for 10-miles is infinitely preferrable to spending even a nano-second in the gym.
It was fun
I may do it again!
I am unlikely to do any better...
But you're not really competing against other people. It's just an exercise in self-inflicted masochism.
I've been meaning to give TTs a go for some years. I've done a 28 min 10 on one of the local TT courses on my flat bar road bike (currently in bits all over the living room while I swap the frame, get drops on ,etc etc) so I should be able to enter without keeping everyone waiting for hours after they'd have gone home.
Maybe this year is the year...
yo, I don't know. Turn off the light's and I'll glow.
To the extreme I rock a mic like a vandal, light up a stage and wax a chump like a candle.
