    Biked to work 18 mile in 62 mins.
    I think sub 60 is achievable this summer.
    That is now a 2010 summer goal.

    Well done Trevor

    I said last year that Cavendish will make a lot of enemies within the peloton. His ethics on european cycling are odd.
    But he certainly isnt an idiot by any means.
    Sprinters by nature are aggresive souls. They have to be like this, but there is a limit.

    His second big year isnt going to plan already and the pressure is building for him. He needs more friends in the peloton.

    Lovely weather for a bike ride today. Went out toward the coast then to Scorton for lunch al fresco and then back via the Trough and lanes of the Ribble Valley. Great to be out on the bike with the sun belting down. Just short of 70 miles at 18 average.

    Well done Ady
    Is the new bike performing as expected ?
    I clocked 60miles on Tues night at about the same average. Was overtaken by the Heanor Clarion brigade but managed to stay on their tale until they turned off.

    Bike is a dream Daz, performance is down to the rider though! I think the tyres play a key part whatever the bike & components. There is no way I would bank over like I did today dropping through the Trough with cheap tyres on. Pro Race or Ultremos all the way. Same on the motorbikes - you need to trust your rubber and make sure you have the correct PSI for your intentions.
