Looks fast even standing still - always a good sign.

Light, fast, Di2…and a sunny warm day in Feb. Doesn’t get much better than that :wink:

Hoping the wind dies down a bit.

Sunday should be good. Wouldn’t go anywhere on a bike on Saturday.
Must get a sportive or summat booked. Need a target.

Managed to miss a turn on the Cotswolds Sportive yesterday.
Resulted in an extra 8 miles and 1500ft of climbing. What a twat!

Nice. Where’s that?

I want to get back into doing a decent amount of cycling, but it’s just not happening at the moment…

#1111

Believe it or not it’s about 40 mins from my house - it’s the road up to the Clyde Murshiel Country Park near Lochwinnoch.

It’s a good 3 mile climb normally but I was struggling yesterday with bad legs and a strong headwind no matter which direction I was heading.

No point forcing yourself out Neil if you can’t be arsed - once the weather picks up a bit you might feel like getting back in the saddle.

2 x KOMs, not very fit and barely having to push on, something to be said for a Force 9 :grinning:

Your legs will thank you for it next weekend

It’s possible that the driver deserved it.
People sometimes behave like cunts when they drive, even when they don’t otherwise. The difference when it’s a cyclist on the receiving end of the distraction/speeding/aggression/couldn’t give a fuck/etc. instead of a car is that the cyclist dies.

I made no judgement either way.

#1116

I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to imply that.
It’s just that cycling to work most days I see in some drivers a level of indifference to the safety of other people (i.e. me) that makes me livid.

#1117

And yet you still feel the need to justify yourself.
Good for you.

Some cyclists are cunts too.

Very clever drive/gear change

Amstell Gold, best finish to a bike race ever??

Looked all over with 35km to go, peleton no chance…

Skip through the interview and there’s a replay of the final couple of KM’s (baring in mind they’d done 265km… not flat… to that point!)

Just awesome (cause he’s not even a roadie really)

It was a remarkable win Dan - how on earth they have the energy to sprint full tilt at the finish is mind-boggling.

I’m looking forward to seeing how the rest of the season develops as there is a great batch of younger riders coming through.

Never mind the final sprint he pulled back over a minute pretty much on his own in the last 3km then went on to out sprint the hangers on (albeit JA & JF were playing with each other, MK & MS weren’t!) . That’s mind-boggling over 265km
