People who announce they’re going to shock you, invariably don’t.


#163

Signed up for Ride London (again) today…


#164

Nice one. I am looking forward to it. Was jolly fun last year.


#165

Are you sure you’ll be fit enough - appreciate you’ve done loads of riding recently, but none of it on a bicycle :grin:


#166

Still out of breath walking up the stairs Jim?


#167

Is that a euphemism for something sexually depraved?


#168

Not sure if anyone here is following the Giro but great finish in yesterday’s race. The statistics on the power outputs of these riders are just mind-blowing, especially when you consider they’d been riding into a 40k headwind for most of the stage


#169

Where are you following it? I read the BBC text, but it’s unexciting.

And goodness, you need to train hard for that kind of figures!

Up Mount Etna for the finish on Tuesday.


#170

Plenty of the right ‘fuel’. Not a problem.


#171

On Eurosport (subscription) or apparently 10pm-11pm each night on Quest (free), on Sky channel 144 or Freeview channel 37


#172

Thank you, will try and catch up with pictures.


#173

Strategically placed police motorbike. :smiling_imp:

Here’s a proper route for you cyclists.
Climb!
Mount Iwaki, Japan.
15kms. @90 switchbacks, 12-18% gradient.
Open once a year to cyclist’s for the Mount Iwaki Hill Climb Challenge. Single speed? :slight_smile:


#175

Not much respite between corners there so it would be a killer.

I would love to give the full Mauna Kea climb in Hawaii a go - it’s about 70 km and 4191m of climbing as it starts at sea level at an average of 6% :+1:


#176

Low enough gear, yeah :stuck_out_tongue:

Looks stunning

@spacehopper you’ll be proud of me…finally took the mudguards off the kinesis :stuck_out_tongue:


#179

No way - pics or I don’t believe you :grinning:

Can always get an Ass-Saver :+1:

G’day guys, Dan from the Wheel Things Strava club.

Finally made it over this way now that I’ve resurrected the hifi after a move.

Anyone else doing ToC over the weekend?
