Surely you can work it out Marty. I know your best subject at school is English but surely you do maths as well? Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

Even though I shredded my legs with the big ride over the moors yesterday, the weather today was just too nice. Couldn't say no. And I'm so glad I went out.

Did the same loop that me and Vince did last week but added a little bit on. Home-Hartlepool-Wolviston-Thorpe Thewles-Bishopton-Sedgefield-Trimdon-Wingate-Wheatley Hill-Home.

In total it was 77km. Don't know why but I got good speed right from the off and managed to hold 31kph (just under 20mph Marty) for 50km. Paid for my over-ambitious pacing in the later stages of the ride and ended up with ave speed of 29.4kph.

I'm sure the turbo has given me better leg strength and speed. Just need to build my endurance now.

Can't believe how nice the weather has been for March. Got to take advantage of it.

Well, I got out as planned on the OCR, one and a half hours instead of the planned two, as I was determined to get my ruddy bedroom funiture assembled and finished before I went crazy. Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

And what a day, the weather was superb, slight wind with a little chill in it out on the open road.

I was looking at the Scott Cr1 in Westbrooks yesterday, and I think my OCR must have known it, as it handled superbly today, totally faultless.

I headed out over to Rudby and onto Crathorne and Picton then down the side HMP Kirklevinton to Seamer then returning to Stainton.

What a joy to be out in just a jersey, flying along the road and attacking the few climbs on the route. It was a pleasure to be riding into the wind at some points just to feel the difference when I turned with the wind behind me.

Stats for the ride,
1 hour 26 minutes
24.7 mile
17.2 mph.

Thouroughly enjoyable.

And my bedroom/study is now finished and looking superb.

Very Happy Very Happy

Gunner, good speed over that route.

Go on, get the Scott CR1 bought. You know you want to. It's only money

Another lovely day out on the bike. After two very hard days I needed to do a recovery ride. Decided to cap my HR at 140 and take it easy. Ended up doing 60km at ave speed of 26.7kph. HR average was 124.

Just another 18.6 mile commute for me today. It was chuffing freezing this morning when I went to work but was much more pleasant when I came home. Hardly any wind today so it wasn't too hard on the fixed wheel.

Just got in from a night MTB ride. 2 hours at moderate pace but fairly hard up the climbs. My first time out on a proper night ride. The new light was amazing. Bumped into 3 guys not far from the top of the unsuitables.

I've yet to get out on a "proper" night ride on the MTB this year or last, despite buying a Cree torch and already having Smart Headlights.

I've got to get out, would have liked to have joined you tonight but I was a little shot after todays Hawnby ride. Embarassed Embarassed
