I'm at work, my usual spot on Christmas, heading to a friends house so our two families can spend Christmas dinner together tomorrow. Back to work Monday, but sure happy we get the full Sunday off this year, as it is the last year we will have a kid living at home for Christmas.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Merry Christmas!
I thought you were the boss there?
Happy news though, mid week rides have there good points, less nutters on the cycle paths and less weekend warriors at the LBS, faster service.
Happy Xmas all!

Merry Christmas everyone!

I'm 10,000 km from my bike right now, but 10,000 km closer to my parents and brothers for two weeks.

Merry Christmas. Had a local TT today. Set out in 1min intervals, then after analysing times, had a handicap system for the way back (could be just seconds from the previous rider or minutes). Each way started with a climb (130/150m) then up/down and finish before the final descent. So 12.3 K 350 asc/200 desc then 12.1K 360 asc/230 desc

Hadn`t been able to practice as change in domestic circumstances means I have been limited to 1 hour rides recently, and also there was a misunderstanding of instructions (my fault, but a course map would have helped) meaning I was expecting another 5K on first leg, so on way out didn`t go hard enough, and also further on the way back, so whilst a much better judged effort (time for return was nearly 2 mins faster), left the final rush way too late, and didn`t go all out to try and hold the ones who went past. However, by the finish only 1 of the starters in front of me had stayed ahead, and only 2 came past me, so overall 4th.
