Probably get the train to Carlisle and train back from Edinburgh but it’s all weather permitting of course. :grin:


#565

Assume ‘ride to the sun’ is ironic bicycle banter?


#566

First hint of Spring on the bike ride today and finally no freezing headwind.


#567

#568

I really enjoyed this book :+1:


#569

'tis good to be back on the bike :+1:


#570

Me too; riding out this morning, watching the Tour of Flanders later :relieved:


#571

Some of these guys are seriously mental

:clap::clap::clap::clap:


#572

Tough as nails, chapeau, although I think I’d stop to be interviewed by her too :slight_smile:

that race was fucking brutal at the end on the twisty turns and steep, wet cobbles.


#573

They really tough as nails it’s amazing - I’d have been curled up in a ball crying :joy:

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 :grinning:


#575

My sadistic streak hopes for bad weather as well :smiling_imp:

Enjoy your trip - it won’t be hard to find a nice bottle of vin rouge :wine_glass:


#576

Well ! The Team Pursuit (both M & F) was a bit tasty :blush:


#577

Managed to catch Paris Roubaix on French TV today - won’t say who won in case some are watching it tonight.


#578

RIP Michael Goolaerts.

It’s a brutal race but taking a life is sad.


#579

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.


#580

Chronically and dangerously low blood pressure?
