March!

Only a quick one today. Had a decent March and kinda met all targets: Lose 4 pounds so I get into the 14 stone range ☑️ Cycle Over 500 miles ☑️ Cycle 200 miles in a week ☑️ But having got into the 14 stone range I then put a pound on and ended up... Continue Reading →

Forty February

Well I did say last month that I'd have a few days off for my birthday and I did! February was and easier month miles wise but I really think my biggest gains so far cycling wise have been made. I managed to eat quite a lot of this cake and as such the weight... Continue Reading →

January 2021

Happy New Year! 2020 was pretty successful for me cycling wise. I managed to use the pandemic and lockdown to my advantage by ploughing the spare time it gave me into cycling, namely Zwifting. I wanted to go into 2021 with the same mindset - we will never get this lockdown time again - so... Continue Reading →

December Done (and 2020 Review)

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Mileage went down in December unfortunately but it's always nice to have some time to relax rather than be flogging yourself every day on the bike. Thankfully I have already achieved my mileage goal so I could afford a bit of me time. I'm not really sure where... Continue Reading →

First Cat C Win

Well it was only a Time Trial! But surely the race against the clock is the purest of all races? Either way I don't care, I got myself a gold cup tonight in the British Cycling Time Trial Series. I surprised myself on 29th October when I entered the TT series and came 2nd.  I... Continue Reading →

Never-ending November!

Covid strikes again! As I write we are emerging from our 2nd lockdown but lockdowns aren't all bad when it comes to cycling: That there is 616 miles - the biggest ever monthly total I have ever ridden! As I detailed in my October blog, we were locked down from 5th November for 4 weeks.... Continue Reading →

Slower October

It's been a funny one. After my Epic Ride up the Dales I felt rather poorly which impacted in the old monthly mileage totals!  But this last week I have been trying to get back into Zwift as the weather (mainly wind) is turning and the dark nights have returned with the clocks going back....

An Epic Ride

Thursday 8th October 2020. A day I will remember for an epic ride out in the Dales that won't be repeated for some time. No speed records would be broken but neither would my will. It took true grit to get round over all 11 climbs, including suffering chronic cramp climbing the last 4. The... Continue Reading →

Swollen September

So September was pretty steady. I even had an easy final week but I suppose as the weather turns on October the real work starts now. Only 5 Zwift rides in September. I expect this to increase! As I type it is pouring down meaning the usual Saturday ride is off. We are nearly 1,000... Continue Reading →

3,000 For The Year… Done!

It gives me great pleasure to strike off my main target of the year! After 260 days I have officially recorded 3,020 miles on Strava. My previous annual best was 2,255 miles back in 2015 and I was hoping to build on this but but for some reason from that point my annual totals went... Continue Reading →
