Ride there, train back from Edinburgh. Sorted.
Think I’m gonna do the Southern Softies version with my son
Probably get the train to Carlisle and train back from Edinburgh but it’s all weather permitting of course.
Assume ‘ride to the sun’ is ironic bicycle banter?
I really enjoyed this book
'tis good to be back on the bike
Me too; riding out this morning, watching the Tour of Flanders later
Some of these guys are seriously mental
Tough as nails, chapeau, although I think I’d stop to be interviewed by her too ️
that race was fucking brutal at the end on the twisty turns and steep, wet cobbles.
They really tough as nails it’s amazing - I’d have been curled up in a ball crying
I love this time of year - Eurosport cycling frenzy - Scheldeprijs tomorrow and with the Tour of the Basque Country on as well and then the Big Daddy on Sunday (although I’m working but will record it all)
Handy UCI Road- Calendar
Thanks Allan - looking forward to all but particularly the Paris-Roubaix (hope it rains☺️)
I’m going to France for a short break from Sunday, so hope to catch up on the race late Sunday with the finest glass of vin rouge that I can find from the local supermarket
My sadistic streak hopes for bad weather as well
Enjoy your trip - it won’t be hard to find a nice bottle of vin rouge
Well ! The Team Pursuit (both M & F) was a bit tasty
Managed to catch Paris Roubaix on French TV today - won’t say who won in case some are watching it tonight.
RIP Michael Goolaerts.
It’s a brutal race but taking a life is sad.
Awful, tragic news RIP
crash and heart attack, could be one of those one off unnoticed heart defects that occasionally take the lives of the young and super-fit.
