I am weak....

I had a story to post where I was going to make fun of how tough it is training in the snow and cold.  We've done some good hours in the snow and cold and the garage.  I was pretty pleased with myself and also a bit down for being a bit sub-par with a cold/cough.

The I saw this....

How tough was your day?

It's not all about going faster...

We all know that a more expensive bike is rarely faster than a cheaper one, and now the power of science has shown that to be true (I especially like the conclusion!).

But that's missing the point. Riding my bike fulfils many different needs in my daily life and I can say with some certainty that riding a shitty bike would reduce the pleasure that I get every single time I roll out of the garage.

People of the world, shake off the shackles of crap bikes... unite under the banner of reliablity and shininess that is the modern bicycle. Embrace gears that work and brakes that stop you. Throw away your EverReady 'lights' and buy something that actually illuminates the street. Spend now and you won't regret it!

First long ride...

... in ages. Me and Rivers, 50 miles. 3 hours. 1 banana. 1 energy bar. 2 bottles. 1 squirrel.

Fortunalty Rivers survived the incident... the squirrel didn't.

The current focus...

is to get faster in the water. It's no surprise that I'm not the only one and I need to take (steal?) inspiration from any and everyone. If that person is Olympic gold medallist and seemingly really nice bloke then so much the better :)
