Unlucky Pete - are you trying out a new aftershave or something???
Iron - you do get about a bit with your job, that's for sure!
Ric - depends on who's running and who's riding I guess . To be fair though, it doesn't take much of an incline to strip away the bio-mechanical efficiency gain of a bike. Probably just below the point where you are forced into a 1:1 gear ratio?
Bloody good work Dean - bet you're team were pleased with you!
Not sure I could do 12M on a treadmill
LSR was slow, but OK. Usual 14M hilly xc route. I felt like throwing in the towel all the way up to mile 7, but persevered.
The highlight was actually on one of the few bits of tarmac on the route - a small hill that goes into Speen from Hughenden side linking tow footpaths. A largish group of road cyclists took me unawares and the leaders started passing me. I needed to cross the road and go through the group to get back off the road. but didn't want to stop and wait for them to pass. So instead, I sped up, overtook the middle bunch, and passed through the gap in front of them and the leaders. They looked both surprised and miffed in equal measure
