    ;) Just managed a sub-30 min 10 miler for the first time....29:57!!! Not bad for a 16-stone 38 year old on his first road bike for 25 years:biggrin:

    Nice little route on the A62 west of Huddersfield, nearest thing to a flat road in these parts, although a little busy at 1700 and had to stop at a couple of traffic lights, so it could have bene even quicker;)

    Now to find a friendly local club and have a go at a proper TT.....

    (Also first post over here from C+....)

    It's a slippery slope. Tri-bars, clingfilm round your shoes, shaving your legs to 'reduce drag' etc....;)
    But hurrah for you!:ohmy:

    You go much faster at 0600 on proper TT routes.

    Empty roads and no lights, you'll be at 25 mins in no time at all!

    That'd be a lot of shaving, I think losing a few Kg's would be more effective for now, shame I've got a curry in the microwave to celebrate the ride and winning tonight's squash match:sad:
