• Big numbers…

    My nan is 90 today. 90! Crikey! That’s a big number to get to.

    Without noticing, during yesterday’s ride i crossed over the 4000miles on the road bike mark (i’ve had the road bike for just under a year). Which was nice.

    Tomorrow i intend to do a 100+ mile ride over lots of big hills (3 catagory 1, 1 catagory 2 and 2 catagory 3 climbs, with lots of undulations inbetween) in order to fully kick the arse of the 5000mile mark for this year’s training (it’s sat at 4941 miles as i write this). Raar! OK so i’m behind matt now in terms of mileage, but i don’t care – i have to sit behind this desk at certain times and he can go and play whenever he likes (within reason) 😉

    Big numbers are cool

    Yes, that’s the only upside to my riding.. oh and more of mine;s been on mountain bikes, becasuse I am not a disco-slipper-wearing-road-freak (and I don’t like road riding in the rain)

    you’ve done more century’s then me though.. erm. my count is 0.

    more of mine would have been proper riding (ie mtb) if i lived within spitting distance of a gurt big hill like you do

    sadly i have to ride about 15-20 miles just to get to any hills, so i wouldn’t have enough time to do it on the mtb

    INdeed.. we should be paid to ride.. I’d like that, paid to ride and bike parts paid for too, save me millions each year.. why do they make stuff out of cheese?
