That was @Justinslow
Although they are both Giant Trinitys .
Okay - couldn't remember who. Remember seeing a bike which is incredibly similar to the one on eBay on these pastures
Ha! Yes that was my bike, the guy obviously didn't get on with it I guess, good spot!
Sold for £50 less than he paid for it, although he's kept the pedals, doesn't look like he's altered much on it. Not bad depreciation after 8 months I guess
At 59 years old, my 10 mile PB this year was 22.34, and my 40 km (24.85 miles) was 1:01:15
We had a 5 mile TT last night. Annoyingly a van decided they wanted to turn right in front of me, meaning I not only had to coast, but apply the brakes. I came in 11:04 and was hoping for a sub 11. I suspect the van made the difference, but rather slow a little than crash.
Improved on my CB at the club 10 last night with a 22:42, so 20s quicker than a couple of weeks ago. Probably more pleased by increase watts by 6w compared to my last outing on that course, averaging 312w. I'd like to get up to 320w by the end of the season and then a hard winter will hopefully see me kick on from there.
Smashed my time for a 10miler (a 24.42) unfortunately it was the first lap of the Guilden Morden 25 miler. Got a pb of sorts for that in atrocious conditions as it was my first 25miles TT, 1:03:46 and it beats my previous best for the same distance (albeit it on a road bike). I think I could have went a minute faster as I stupidly never calibrated my power meter right and it had no reading and I just paced conservatively off heart rate (keeping it around 85%) but given the conditions Im quite happy with it
I popped up to rural Lincolnshire today for the Trent Valley CC TT, the C10/28. My power was way down as I was concentrating more on staying upright in strong side winds. Once I settled down though it was quite a fast course despite the starter telling me it wasn't and I was delighted to get a pb (24.44) and 4th on the Handicap. With £5 winnings I don't think its a sign to turn professional though
I'd love in part to do a fast flat d/c course and I'm pretty sure I could get that down further but I'm too chicken
Ride the B10/36r this morning, half DC and half SC, but pretty quite, especially with an 8:16 start.
It is a faster course that our club evening 10's, so I was hoping to go sub 22.i don't have speed or time on my Garmin while riding so only find out the result once finished. Today came in at 21:00. If loved to have gone 1s faster, but I gave it plenty and it was the first time on the course. Finished in 6th place overall, happy with that.
Had to test my new cockpit set up (Easton Attack bars) and new helmet (Kask Bambino Pro). I was hoping to do that yesterday but the TT was washed out by heavy rain and thunder/lightning. So I went out solo and did an out and back locally - chopped a minute off my my PR which is now 1:00:10. Pretty pleased with that, considering there are two stop signs along the way, so had to slow down four times altogether on the out and back. Would have been nice to see that time go under an hour, but c'est la vie.
Ive finally found the secret for beating 25mins on the PCC course, sit in a traffic jam for 45minutes and barely make the start. Only to find out its an unclipped start that lets you do a 24.46
First 25 today and on a rather a rolling course. It was either gently up or down, but no flat. Managed 57:21, I was hoping to go under an hour so am reasonably pleased with that. I hope to go a bit quicker next time and on a flatter course.
Loop, or out and back course?
Out and back, B25/17
Nice going I done my 2nd 25 today on a slightly flatter A road course than the sporting course I did a few weeks back in a thunder storm. I was slower however. I was on track to beat it until my ulnar nerve flared up on the rough surface :-/
