Just entered the Gower oly, just need to get a wet suit now and try this OW malarkey. Perhaps I should have tried that first..o well

Hope your OW swimming goes better than mine..I'm rubbish. Haven't been back since floating and panicking in the choppy sea off south Devon a couple of weeks ago!!
I wouldn't mind having a go in a lake but they're off limits in this part of the world.

I have just made some rice & bacon (surprise, surprise) cakes as a savoury energy bar alternative to flapjack.  YUM, YUM

Quick question: How much damage will the turbo do to my road tyre?  
I had a trainer tyre on through last winter, but it's knackered and I don't have a replacement.  Want to pedal tonight but am home with weans.

I'm a big proponent of solid food on the bike.  I can't stand gels.  My new favorite are Bonk Bars (which just happen to be the official bar of IM over here).

In answer to your question .. all depends on the turbo

Mine eats tyres for breakfast and it is half way through a turbo tyre for whatever reason, try it and see, you'll soon see if its a bad idea by little black rubbedr dots all over your floor

Ello again all..... been a few weeks.  Anyway....

My turbo visibly munches normal road tyres from session to seesion.  I now use a turbo specific tyre from one of the usual suspect makers.
