    :sad: What a sod life can be at times. I hope when her time comes it's as painless as possible.

    Suffering from lack of cycling? Can't even summon up the energy to put this on the bike....

    Haven't been on the bike since 18 August when I bust my clavicle. Got an x-ray in 12 days when I'll find out if the plating and bone graft have worked. If the news is positive and the consultant is happy, it's full steam ahead with gym work, turbo and gentle rides.

    TBH it's been okay having a good excuse not to go out but now the evenings are lengthening I can feel the sap rising.

    Cheeky. I just strap a homing pigeon to my bars with an alp kit stem cell full of bird seed. Works every time never get lost.

    I am a very determined fair weather rider so will not ride in bad weather. So far this year, I have only rode my bike 4 times, about 15 miles each time, when the weather was good enough. I watch a lot of cycling related You Tube blogs though. Can't wait for spring to come.

    Been out once this year. January 1st. The intermittent Mavic Death Squeal I'd been ignoring finally progressed on that ride to the point that the freewheel now rotates freely in both directions. Frustrating because even when I'm down I know that once I'm out on the bike I'll feel much better, but with my mental health being so shonky of late, the motivation or means to fix it simply isn't there.

    I can also tell you how to cure it for free. It's easy to fix.

    Thanks for the offer man, but I've ridden with the bike like that for nearly 2 years. Goodness knows how much damage I've done in that time.
    It'll make for a fine turbo wheel until the better weather comes round :-)

    It's simple to fix. You just need to remove the freehub, clean everything up and re-lubricate with 3 in 1 oil. Let me know if you want me to explain how to remove the freehub.

    Back on the bike for commuting and i am enjoying dodging other shared path users much more than fighting with other motor vehicles

    You might be alright there. Some members are ok with Turbo miles being added to their annual mileage so you might get away with counting any YouTube mileage in your annual total.
