Bike ponces only welcome if they don't speak in tongues
Did you manage to leave the shop without parting vast amounts of money Siggy? They're about a mile from my house.
Sponge - try the bikeradar forum classifieds for things like that.
Cyclezone in Crowthorne.
Where are you RafikiD?
That's the old Berkshire Cycles place just be the station? The other Cyclezone that was in Winnersh (which is now a Subway) was terrible - but I guess it has a lot to do with the guys/girls that work there!
I'm just up the road in Wokingham
Fat Buddha - agree completely. I've certainly noticed my reliance on using the bars on my road bike has reduced after getting to grips (excuse the pun) with riding aeros on the TT bike where body position tends to control the steering just as much!
That's the place.The road shop is very nice.
Small world eh! Let me know if you're up for a long TT bike ride.
I'm certainly up for that - although depends what you class as long. I'm currently doing about 35 - 40 miles on the TT, averaging about 21/22mph. But happy to be pushed a little.
I'm off to Girona next week for some warm weather training and some hills - but I'll give you a shout when I'm back.
I know you've already done it, but it would be nice to do the Olympic TT course at least once!
The course is ~29miles from Hampton Court and back. Stop for cake at Five at the River afterwards.
I need to get up to that distance on the TT first!
Want to pencil in something towards the end of March sometime then? I've got half marathon on the 25th March and another of 1st April, but they're both Sundays, so any Saturday works for me
24th works for me. Cat5?
Half on the 25th is the Water for Life, between Marlow and Henley along the Thames - not very fast, but a fun little local run. 1st April is Reading - which if you don't get bogged down at the start it can be a quick course
Unfortunately not. I have a prior engagement that I have to be at! On pain of, erm, pain!
That is about the only date I can't do....other than:
18Mar, 15Apr, 6May, 27May. Something's happening on the 1st July too
Raf, did you do the Wokey Cokey the other weekend?
Cat, alas I'm suffering from a mild bought of Plantar fasciitis, so had to pull out of Wok - was on the side lines shouting abuse though! I take it you did it? How'd it go?
As for doing the Olympic TT course - shall we plonk for 6th May, as I think Golden Boots is busy on 18Mar, I've got a little 26.2 mile jog around Brighton on 15 Apr. How does that sound GB?
Plus I'm busy on 1 julu also - shouting abuse, sorry offering support to you guys!
But Cat, if you fancy a ride out somewhere on the TT bikes on the 18th, drop me a PM and we can arrange!
Sounds painful. Did 1:38, a great race.
Sorry - those are the dates I can't do...
