Had my first proper dark night ride of the season tonight :D Very wet, very muddy and blowing like hurricane Gustav :shock:
Came around a corner and nearly run over some squadies with empty oil barrels on their backs, must have been getting beasted :lol:
We missed out the woods where some geezer shot himself dead though :roll: It was dark afterall :wink:

Did the long red then black route at Thetford yesterday, 1h50 and about 21 miles. Very slow though the muddy bits though as I had old worn tyres on with virtually no rear grip.

Plus the normal weekly evening group ride of 20-30 miles around the local fields and bridleways, but there are no hills around here.

Suppose I better add something then.

Sunday 1.5 hrs being beasted at the gym then 10k run (52 mins)

Monday gentle 1.5 hrs after work road ride with the gorgeous Kat

Tuesday rest day

Wednesday gym at lunchtime

Thursday ride with RB crew at Chicksands - ride is a bit of an exageration, more like chat, ride for a bit, chat again repeat until finished.

Friday rest day!

Saturday long solo road ride planed

downer :( ..... here's hoping you're race fit for next weekend :D

Did a spot of pre D2D riding last week on holiday. I'd reckon this route was about 10kms from the beach to the bunker thing at the top... relentless uphill all the way. Plus side to this being a great D/H run all the way back and a cruzcampo on the balcony 8) Last time I rode this was 10 years ago on my Kona Muni mula. :D
.... only thing now, easyjet left my newer ride in spain ( along with most peoples' golf clubs! ) and they're not going to deliver next week. :( .... so pleased I didn't take anything retro now!

enjoy
boy "Ola" boy
