Re: Ten Miles a Day

Looks like is going to be 22.15 miles/day for 2014.

A guy at AUK, Steve Abrahams I think his name is, is having an attempt to break Tommy Godwin's year record.

His target is 75,066 miles in 2015.

Disgruntled cyclist-
"I don't like cars using the roads where I ride my bike, so motorists, take note and keep off the road."

Re: Miles per Gallon

Leading to infinite mpg. I got infinite mpg out of my car today - to the supermarket and back, without putting any petrol in. You will one day. Cars don't run on the padding in the seat. Think about it. :wink: Also, if you overfill a car, the excess spills out onto the pavement. Similar to a man an...

Re: Miles per Gallon

When you give a cyclist a slice of bread that is 120 kCals, one would think that if the kCals per mile of the cyclist is 40 kCals per mile, the slice of bread would last 3 miles. We all know this is ridiculous. If it were true, a 300 km Audax rider would require 65 slices ( 5 loaves ) of bread to co...

Re: Ten Miles a Day

Shortest work commute is now 18 miles per day.
I'll have to extend my ride home by twelve miles per week, do a 50 miler every second Sunday and ride the Tinsel and Lanes 125 mile Audax in December.

That will ensure I get my 24 miles per day.

Re: Have you been knocked OFF in a collision while cycling?

The second time in eight years of having an 'off' due to someone else's incompetence was last week.

A student on a bicycle riding with earphones along a segregated cycle path. He wasn't paying attention until he heard my shouting, and then he turned into me instead of turning away. Idiot.

Re: Cycling Eutopia ?

If you Google "Hills in Copenhagen", you get Copenhagen, Louisiana, USA.

Why? Because there's NO hills in Copenhagen, Denmark.

If there were no hills in Birmingham, we'd have the same problem with too many cyclists.

Re: Indoor training question

What type of event are you training for? Training on a turbo can be a very simple thing, or a very complex thing. The simple method is to use an ordinary bike computer on the driven wheel and measure the distance covered in a certain time ( usually 20 minutes as in a CT FTP test ) dictated by a coun...

Re: 26" (559) tyre for Audax

I have Conti Gatorskins 28-559.

Front 90 psi, rear 95 psi.


I've ridden Audax on 20 x 1 3/8".

Audax ain't fast. That's why they state "9.3 Any kind of cycle may be ridden"

On the other hand, my SWorks has Conti Supersonic 20-622 and I rode a 200 km Rando on that.
