    False flats can really be a tester, good to keep going and still get a good ride into the legs though, Yenners!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yeah but if your SOO hammered after a false flat that goes on for about 3/4ml. at 25mph...then I feel its understandable to 'let 'em go... esp. if your down on training ! ;)

    Legs are better now though...

    Onwards and Upwards ! :biggrin:

    it's a problem, innit. you can either do everything in your power to hold on, but then when you fall down at the end and nearly die, you look like a wuss.

    or you can drop off, but you look like a wuss.


    So, either way, you look like a wuss, but the way you did it at least you got a nice ride in.........


    (well, as nice as you can get on a ride to Runcorn and back........)

    Something along the lines of:

    The chap at the front decided to increase the speed up what appeared to be a fairly flat section but ended up being a long, steady gradient. I was awfully tired afterwards. So much so that I decided to toddle off on my lonesome for the rest of the ride. Spiffing.
