The Longest Day from Dorney. But the shorter (90km) one.
Enjoy the Audax. Do you still have to maintain a given speed for those?
Erm ......I'm not planning on any speed Cat but there is a 110k route as well so I should be okay and there are a group of us doing it together.
Longest day looks a bit bumpy - good luck.
And you Soupy.
Have just washed the PBS in readiness for tomorrow. Shiny bare aluminium.
Have a great time Siggy. I'd love to do that one day. Perhaps a Pirate outing?????
Siggy, have a great day out, my day also starts early at 06:30.
I hope you draw loads of confidence from the day to send you off on LEJOG in great fettle.
Siggy has texted (quite a while ago) to say he'd passed the 106 miles, his arse hurts, he's met the mayor and had his picture taken ??? (someone obviously has an odd fetish)
I'm waiting to hear that he's finished but it wouldn't surprise me to hear nothing whilst he's 'socialising' !!
Still waiting to hear...
I've texted him to tell him all about the roast dinner he's missing just to help him along
Well done Siggy. The Prince meets the Mayor eh?
Wow, well done on that ride.
Also on a positive note..... but not quite so impressive, I had a proper bike fit last week, which was great. He changed loads, well just about everything actually. And as soon as I "fessed up" that I was training for Outlaw, he persuaded me to put some clip on tribars on my road bike.
I managed to have a bit of a go with the bars at the weekend, and hurray, I didn't fall offhttps://us.v-cdn.net/6027274/uploads/forum/smilies/party_smiley.gif' />. I was surprised how stable I actually felt, not too wobbly at all.
Thats a big positiive bburn. I loved my bike fit - it made a big difference. Well done. I'm still getting used to tri bars. Not used them for the last few weeks so thanks for reminding me to get back on them again.
I loved it too. https://us.v-cdn.net/6027274/uploads/forum/smilies/big_smile_smiley.gif' /> The whole thing just feels right now, did a 3hr ride with no issues at all, and I was a tad faster than usual.
My OH says I look like I'm in a much better position on the bike, not quite sure what he means, perhaps I looked really wonky before https://us.v-cdn.net/6027274/uploads/forum/smilies/confused_smiley.gif' />
+1 on the tri bars.
Put mine on reluctantly at the weekend and really chuffed. Don't want to tempt fate but seemed to get the hang of them and even attempted a couple of gentle corners. They do put more pressure through my less padded lady areas...... need to toughen up.
Are Adamo the 2 pronged looking saddles?
I have a TT saddle with a softer 'nose', not as soft as I would like though!
