I shall be 'racing' in black n yeller - and will probably be sporting assorted piratey type kit for pre-event casual wear.  Don't think I have anything that'd fit you Robbie - cept a buff!

Think there're authorised drowning sessions on Friday and Saturday morning. Not sure I'll pedal the entire course but might take a short spin round the first and last bits of it, probably on Wednesday, then beg a lift from someone to look at the 'middle' loop by car.

Oh lord.  Just chatting through Saturdays route and the words Ditchling and Beacon were strung together in the same sentence.  I've got two failed attempts up that hill.  Maybe third time lucky?

You had the same record with Bury HIll but you've had no problems pedalling up that several time this year.  You'll be fine

New shorts have arrived, thanks Seren

Seems XS is a little smaller than it used to be. They're a little bit more snug around the waist than my old XS shorts. Still useable though

 

 

i was thinking they were on the snug side as well.maybe my old ones had stretched in the wash.or the fact I ordered a size smaller in hope.......as my normal clothes are a size or two smaller......

Not sure if I can breathe in my shorts.....must go onto my fitnesspal in the morning

On closer examination, the design is slightly different.  New ones seem to be a little shorter from gusset to waistband, which itself is narrower. Also has a different pad.  The actual wasit size seems to be identical though.  Think I'll have to test them out on a shorter session to make sure I can breathe comfortably though!

Trogs spotted getting some hills in today

Thanks for the YARRGH just before you sped passed at the bottom of the hill - made me try a bit harder for a brief spell.  Slightly embarrassed that you caught me again on the Headly road. Hoping you stopped at the cafe rather fitting in a full loop before lapping me!!

Dunno. Suppose you have to weigh up whether you're now strong enough to do the climbs on a double without battering your legs too much, against spinning out on the downs with a compact.

I know I'm going to need my compact for the ups and will be grateful for the recovery on the downs. Planning to go play on some hills tomorrow which will give me a good idea of how much it's going to hurt in 5 weeks time!

Sun cream?

Yep, regular p20 user in both training and events.  Was on the bike for about 5 hours last Sunday in full sun most of the time and have barely a hint of comedy tan.

At events I apply it liberally when I get up and allow 10 mins or so for it to soak in before getting dressed.  Generally don't apply anything else all day - which in my case means till long after sundown - and have only ever had minor sun related soreness.

Like all sun screens you need to apply it generously for it to do the job properly
