In Sickness and in Health

on Tue, 30/12/2014 - 14:11

Sometimes, you don't want to be on the bike. It's not common but it happens.

Sometimes you don't have a choice; be it a weather issue, a partner issue or an injury issue.

Of these the injury issue is the most frustrating. Weather passes, turbo trainers can act as a substitute. Partners can be persuaded or relent. Injuries nag and persist. They require rest and rehab. They hurt.

We have been unfortunate to have had some serious injuries within the club - but fortunately improving or resolving.

The Dark Side of the Moon

on Sun, 14/09/2014 - 20:57

An unusual title for a blog post i'll grant you, but it will all become painfully obvious as you read on.

Now, lunar observation doesn't have much to do with cycling; not I guess unless you are an astrological follower, who only rides when the Moon is in the seventh house and Jupiter is aligned with Mars (musical joke). I guess it better than when there are rings around Uranus.

And, thats really where this post is heading- The dark side of your moon.

Those of you who have talked to me on rides may know that i'm on my third saddle of the year.

Tour de Force

on Sun, 03/08/2014 - 20:19

Well, it's all over and done with now. Indeed due to my slow editing skills, we've even had the Commonwealth games come and go since the Tour De France graced England's shores.

That said, it's given us all time to reflect on the Tour and the 3 weeks of happenings on and off the bike. How was it for you?

It all started a while a go didn't it?  Not the Tour, but the build-up. Many in the club talked about it on Sunday rides, the fallout from not including Wiggins and Kennaugh in the Sky Team - would it come back to haunt them?
