Fit to shoot .

Recommended Posts

Till you come to the uphill part Colin ? my left knee is still aching from yesterday . the difference between the bikes is that up hill is fun on a leccie bike . down hill on a normal bike . might be me getting older but there seems to be more of the former than the latter . ??? HOLLY 

 

PS anyway Colin , twice around the block does not qualify you to express an opinion . :Spike

3 white bikes on my main long route to work now which is very sad. The electric bikes are being speed unlimited by some people and I get passed like I am not moving on my bike some mornings by riders hardly turning the pedals. . One bloke was trying to over take cars going up Shooters Hill on a MTB with 2 hub motors a while ago.

I went through a speed trap on my bike and the gits wanted to bust me for it. The super over-seeing it was a right piece of work, always remember his brown patent gloves that stank. I knew the driving licence trick so kept quiet.

Agreed, this guy looked the brigadier off Doctor Who complete with silly tasche, sat in an SD1. 'Driving licence' he said, 'If I had a driving licence do you think I'd be on a bike?' I chucked back at him. 'Don't be funny with me sonny' he said. 'Ok Dad' I said with a grin and instantly regretted it as his eyes bulged.  'F*ck off out of my sight' was the last I got from him...🤣

I have done 31 miles  in the trainer today, had a ride on a smart turbo trainer On Sunday in a bike shop which if it was a ft rifle it would be above the level of a 9015 . In the end I just could not buy it mainly due to reading about how many are going wrong.

Quite possibly, but it has merit because any slight deviation from perfection is puinished, so for FT it's a great exercise believe it or not.

Plus my big-bang Club is full of old duffers that make you look positively youthful and they need a challange to keep them going and this year BR is it.
