    Thank you to the poster who dropped the PlanetX sale link in the previous thread. I now have a significantly lighter wallet and a pissed off wife.

    Goals for this year: 7000miles and three triathlons, starting with Snowdon in May. Maybe Geneva after that.
  4. Done a grand total of 43km so far this year; hopefully get out this weekend if the weather improves
  5. Fucking soaked riding home from work last two days. Still, better than a bus wanker.
    Hoping for a relatively mild next couple of months.

    Nee plans/targets miles wise or nowt like that.

    Majorca booked for Easter, hope to get there in September as well.....and possibly cheeky short break to Girona cycling for wife’s birthday ?

    Oh and a nice new bike to be added to bike family ;)

    Dry but cold with wind tomorrow..

    And it’s miles ffs ;)
  7. Going cycling in Mallorca in March. Bit scared, as going with people who can actually go fast. (a club)

    Correct. You should be able to ban people from a thread.

    Shields or Clarion ? A club should be taking care of all abilities ...split into faster/slower groups etc

    Late or early March ?
    We went once when Easter was early and the only time in Mallorca when weather iffy.

  10. Middle of march. Hoping it'll be mid teens but sunny.

    Going with the Blaydon club. I hope there will be a mix as there's a fair few who enjoy an ale. I can always take a day off if its too much work.

    Hiring a flash DI2 bike for the week. :)

    Wish I could get some MILES in like. I've not been able to do owt since 6th December. Came off the bike & did me shoulder in. Waited 2 weeks to get surgery (ac joint reconstruction) & don't know how long before getting back on the bike. Can't even get on the turbo yet :(. I've got 3 bikes sitting in the garage doing nowt. Every now & then I go in & have a chat with them :lol::oops:

  16. Goals. Get fitter = faster than last year.
    Beat last years milage. Going for 8,000 miles.
    Previous climbing stats to be shattered. Not checked, so don't know what they are.
    Generally, just become a fast pensioner.

  18. Did the Seaham circular last year, and the timekeeper made a right mess of me and the wifes times.

    Er. Faster pensioner. I'll never be fast.
