It's a tough life out here. A quality 32 miles (1850 ft elevation, 19mph average speed) of tan-line cultivating, mood boosting, Sunday morning solo ride goodness!

Only -4 or so in Consett. We will get a Summer, soon! Still, 1,145 miles on the year over Winter. I just hope the snow stays away!!!

Ahhh, yes I seem to have lost a bit of weight since I quit eating "salty Surrey winter road grime" flung from a club mate's back wheel. A meal of Heston standards. Haha!

Yeah, I'm with you Dave.  I'd much rather be experiencing the delights of greasy, wet roads, scattered with a prime selection of thorns and flints.  Nothing beats the thrill of fixing a flat with frozen fingers and steamed-up glasses.  You can't buy an afternoon like that!

Sorry MR, I can't for the life of me see the attraction of a ride in Tassie!!! I positively loved every minute of riding behind the Fourth Mrs Nobby and eating the grit and mud being thrown up from her back wheel...

"In today's twenty miler the roads were clear apart from one 10 foot stretch of solid ice. Stayed upright somehow, such skill, such good luck"

"This week's roadside finds are very limited. Half a roll of gaffer tape and a rather nice socket spanner are all that my sharp eyes noticed."
