Time Trials

As the time trial season approaches the end for 2017, I thought I would look back on what has turned out to be a very good year for me. But before I get onto results I thought it would be fun to look at a time trial and break it down. Each week we rock…


May – Speeding Up, Times Tumbling

Another month rolls by, where do they go! I can’t believe we are in June already. Our little boy James continues to grow and develop and charm us all. It is fascinating watching him develop and now he is just coming up to 22 months, he is in a very adorable stage with talking etc……..


April 2017 – Dorset to Belgium

April, April, April, what a month that has been. The first main ride of April was meant to be the Dorset Coastlet Audax 100km. However, Ian put a very persuasive argument to me regarding the Dorset Coast 200km ride, it went something like this, “Do you fancy doing the 200km ride?”. I put up a…


March 2017 – Pushing out the miles

Finally, spring is here! Not that it’s much to get excited about at the moment, but at least it’s all moving in the right direction. Talking of moving in the right direction, I finally got to the first sportive of the year, the Wiltshire Wildcat. I think this will become my season starter. It’s a…


February 2017 – A mixed bag

February, what a mixed bag in so many ways. We went from forecasts of holy crap I can’t feel my face to the belief that Spring really is on its way. So I say to Spring, stand up to winter and give it a hefty kick in the snowballs! This constant teasing of warmer promises…


January 2017

January is the worst month, you’re fat and broke from the holidays, paler than ever, and you can’t feel your face when you walk outside! Unless you are one of the privileged few to have escaped to sunshine and warmth, you’ve probably been freezing this month. We still have weeks to go of much the…


2016

2016 – What a year! So much happened, good and bad. The targets for 2016 were put in place at the end of 2015 and after a great year on the bike I am very happy to have achieved them all. The years go by so quickly, but it does seem a long time ago…


L’Etape Du Tour – Megeve to Morzine

After months of prepping and what seemed like constantly recovering from colds and viruses, finally July 10th arrived. They always say, be careful what you wish for! I wished for sunshine and I got it! I was up about 6, giving me an hour to get every thing sorted and allow the nervous excitement to…


The events are getting closer.

Here we go with blog number 2. I was hoping to write last week, but finding the time was quite difficult, what with parenting, training, other jobs that need doing and sometimes finding a bit of time to just sit down! Oh and the small matter of an awful stomach bug. A great ride on…


I’m back and so are the punctures

Hi all, It’s been a few years and a new site, but I have decided to kick off my blogs again. A few things have happened since my last blog site, such as starting up a new cycling club, “Tornado Road Cycling Club” and the small matter of becoming a father! I have been training…
