I like the "ExtravaLanza" but fear the strappy top may expose my moobs.

You should worry...

Any sign of thawing anywhere? I could do with a bike tomorrow.

All thawed in the Bristol area. Long bike completed today without issue. I know Seren is still struggling in S Wales though so Pingu may not be having much luck either.

Lovely here this morning - headed out for a 60 miler under blue skies!! Got a puncture at around 40 miles, fixed, slotted wheel back in and stripped thread on QR (Trek design fault!!) so had a five mile walk in cleats to Henley cycles to get another before I could continue!! But still better than a turbo!!

Anyone who fancied biking round North Warks would be fine, I didn't fancy biking and was fine too

Still all snow and ice here, need an overnight thaw.

Mouse, it alright in the afternoon.  Wanted to head out at 10 but there was a lot of black ice around so I went out at 12 and it was lovely, stuck to well used roads though rather than the minor roads.  Did 57 miles with a 2 mile run afterwards and even managed to clean the bike afterwards which is a major achievement!!

When you all decide what tee we need to get, could someone please let me know?
My tuppence-worth is that I prefer it without the extra wordiness...

Couple of hours on the mtb for me, up and over Ivinghoe Beacon and in to Ashridge, glad I had a few layers on it was well chilly on the tops !

54 mile steady ride in just over 3 hours.... first long ride for 4 months so its nice to be back.
3.5 or maybe a 4 hour ride next weekend!

Unblieveable change fom yesterday. Icy roads replaced by flooded roads.

Serously wet feet............I cant help but think how usefull is this winter training going to be in Lanza!!!

Sorry to poke my nose in, but why not just agree what wording has to be used and then let people style their Tees as they wish.

Personally I don't like the large logo and so would prefer to style mine with a small one but I am more than happy to have agreed wording

The Pirates have always welcomed individuality and so I don't think this should turn into a uniform but needs some sort of conformatory element

And my opinion is that this has always been known simply and affectionately as ExtravaLanza and it would be a shame to lose that

Oh, just read that back. I didn't mean it to sound bossy

 why don't we decide in the normal Pirate fashion - we can all put our point of view across, discuss amongst ourselves, reach a consensus ...... then M..eldy will tell us what we're doing

Sounds good to me

16 weeks... the fear has surfaced. butterflies in tummy (or it could just be a dodgy pint).

super windy on the bike today, a tree fell onto the road just as we passed it. if things had ended differently id be calling it the dream crusher

Watch it you. He's met me.


And what a momentous occasion that was with me shouting MOUSE MOUSE!

If I have had the same energy on the bike I would have melted the ice that crushed my soul on race day
