There's an actual chance I might ride a bike further than my commute, 5 miles fact fans, this month.
Thursday 1 June.
I'm not even sure what riding a bike for a distance > 10 miles feels like anymore.
I may need epic amounts of cake, coffee, gels, recovery drink, etc and so on.
Would anyone care to join me as I cry at the loss of any ability I once had?
Probably Kent, probably mildly lumpy.
This may be possible. How far?
Gosh. There's no way I'd want to go out much more than 70ish. The loop is about what I'm looking at, but not the loop.
Is that even a thing?
We could ride to Hampton court and back?
Leave Cadence at 9?
Stop for a coffee at Putney on the way there, through Richmond Park, can we get a gravel section in on the way back so I can validate my wider tyres? Perhaps a coffee and a cake stop somewhere in Streatham to ensure we've got enough in the tank for the Anerley ridge?
We'd be back by 3?
What hashtags do we need?
Can we go #randonerd?
Take a made up brevet card and ask every coffee shop to add their loyalty stamp.
Seriously though, college road is hard work now.
Went up College Road the other week. Thought I smashed it, but was way off my best time :-(
Probably high atmospheric pressure, Sam.
That's the excuse I use.
It was also on old steel with pannier.
That I am guessing were full of bricks.
Strong headwind too.
:-) No, just a big gut.
That's what happens if you don't do enough training.
Anyone fancy a coupla drinks Sunday night? Was going to propose a ride to some nice pub somewhere but it looks like rain. Maybe Canopy?
Just realised, this Bank Holiday was traditionally the same name CX ride :0(
Wow, really? That went quickly. Shame about the predicted rain, else I would pop over. I have probably ridden that bike 10 times since last year.
anyone around tmrw and wednesday am?
I plan on going out on the commuter bike (single speed, mudguards) for no more than 40km per day. Potter out potter back.
I am on Wednesday a.m.
Leave at 9ish from CP?
Don't drop me.
I need to go at 7.30 or 8.00 really.
That also works. It's the school rush traffic I was trying to miss....
Weather looks grim so I'm going to do some Regents laps and then head into office.
Itbwas lovely out there today. The fog and mist were like a big comfy duvet.
Also. That rapha winter jersey, the one that looks like it was modelled on grease, is so good.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
