    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.
    I can but dream of 18mph average!!! Just returned after a lay off so only averaging about 14-15mph but never get better than about 16mph avg. Crap or what!!!

    Anyway, got my first MTB ride out tonight since my 3 month lay off. Not confident that I'll keep up with the lads (so they may get a bit cheesed off with me lol) but it'll be a lovely night for it over the Yorkshire moors Looking forward to it in an insane sort of way!

    Good effort Flopsy, don't knock yourself there are one or two racing snakes on here.

    Just got back from work and averaged 14 mph but when downloaded there is 1500" of climb.
    15 mins slower than going but 500" more ascent.

    Re: Todays Bike Ride

    Racing snakes? On here? Nah, surely not?

    Did my first ever 4-up team time trial tonight, all womens team and it was great! Decided to keep all 4 of us together, which meant compromising on speed, but we worked like an oiled machine, communicating well, all four over the line at more or less the same time and... WON We seem to be Welsh women's team TT champs and some drinking money on top of that. Life doesnt get much better than this! Great evening on the bike in great company

    Well, despite my lack of fitness, I actually managed to keep up with the lads last night and finished the MTB ride

    2 hours of glorious sunshine and glorious views followed by a slap up meal. Doesn't get much better.

    A happy bunny

    Re: Todays Bike Ride

    Flopsy, sounds like a good one

    Thank you ratfink, I had to look that one up too, my Welsh is very rudimentary

    Hungry... why am I always hungry? Does anyone of you also find that cycling makes you more hungry than running?

    And who is going to give my @rse a kick so I get back into running? Planning on doing 3 peaks CX again this year and it was time I started running again!

    if you look at this sequence at 50 seconds I would not say it is all Cav's fault. please dont tell me we are going to spend this years tour slagging off our best sprinter for a long time as happenned on this forum last year
