We're all of different abilities. I'm really unfit at the moment but I went for a 50km ride last week and overtook 'roadie' cyclists and was overtaken by 'roadie' cyclists. I really don't see any point to your post other than bragging
There's always a certain IRONY in dealing with individuals who believe that by BUYING all the gear, they've MADE IT.
Whether it's at the gym alongside the pot bellied young men, with their protein shakes and special app's on how to lift weights - while the 78 year old bloke alongside is lifting twice their weight, or playing alongside incompetent musicans who struggle to complete the scale on a multi thousand pound musical instrument, while the young kid alongside demonstrates an astonhishing ability, on a knackered, old, borrowed instrument.
Full respect to the elderly woman who's cycled into town over the last ten years on a cheap bike, regardless of weather, or the local kid who's doing a 4 mile round trip to school every day on his bike. Difficult to identity with cyclists who've bought all the high speed gear, but neglected basics such as how to ride it at speed
Well, now is your chance to show us all how fast you are.
I'm running three Open Time-Trials in South Wales this year - a 10-mile, a 50-mile and a 100-mile.
Pick your distance and enter. If you finish outside of the bottom 20% I'll refund your entry fee.
Up for it?
