Another 60 miler under the belt this morning for me.....
Actual riding time was less, and therefore average speed faster as I stopped to get some fuel down my neck, and also had to fix a puncture. First one I've had in 300miles, pleased I managed to fix it as quickly as I did.
100 mile organised ride next weekend!

I ended up getting a cannondale synapse last week and i've only rode it once. Guess road riding isn't for me.

I'm going to start racing so I decided I need to jump on the 29er bandwagon. So I ordered one of these bad boys SCALPEL 29'ER 2
Nationwide backorder and saw one a guy brought in at the LBS and the quality of the carbon cranks and everything else is amazing. Its a cunthair under 25lbs as well.
I've got my 11' scalpel for sale for DIRT CHEAP and will ship if anyones interested.....2011 Cannondale Scalpel 3 Carbon 23.4LBS!!!!

Did my first 100 miler on Sunday
No gps plot as my iPhone wouldn't have lasted the distance, but we did it in a nice steady 6 hours of pedalling with a 20-30 minute lunch break after 50 miles and a 15 minute drink stop at 75 miles.
Picked up 2 damn punctures, one after just 2 miles, and one after 90 miles. Grrr.. now looking for some more puncture resistant tyres.
Now looking at another hilly 96.5 mile organised ride this coming weekend and a 113 mile even more hilly one the week after. Anything less seems pointless now!2.0 Mugen CRX VT-Turbo.

Well that was fvcking hard work today! 6h15 on the bike and around 7h in total, 96.5 miles, 2177m/7142feet of climb, 3 bastard climbs in the last 30 miles, including a 1 in 5 section on the last one!
Made it up all of them without stopping or walking though.
Not sure about doing the full 113 mile, >2700m climb route next week. Might just do the half route. London-Paris isn't that hilly and I'm not sure I can take another beating even harder than today's!! Thought my legs and lower back were going to explode at times!2.0 Mugen CRX VT-Turbo.

I think we are here to achieve something. It's one life.
Whatever you do, keep yourself and people around you happy.
Even if you can't help them, don't harm them. I think that is pretty much life. Keep going, don't stand.
You got nothing to lose. Keep going, it's life.

So my Trek 5500 is taking a beating out here in cali, the rear of the drive train has been giving me hell. I've been using it to commute plus ride on the weekends(it was a worn out gruppo before all of the springs riding), there are bars here that give you a discount for showing up on a bike. Narrowed it down to either a new gruppo and wheels or a new bike altogether. Going to have to go look around this weekend at what is available in the sub $1500 range."We can change the future, but the past is only written once, so leave your mark." -Slomaro

Ohhh Hello there...
Ridiculous weekend. Bought this second hand from a pro cyclist and sold my 5500. Planning on a decent ride tomorrow morning. Need to pick up a new spare tube and some carbon bottle cages though."We can change the future, but the past is only written once, so leave your mark." -Slomaro
