  1. Vets cycling and running some initial observations.

    The little twins have a significant birthday next week so we're all off to Iceland for a few days. Thought I'd check, as one does, to see if there just might be a running race on while I'm there; and ...

  2. Vets cycling and running some initial observations.

    Bit more data now. On a good morning in Bushy Park today I did an all time Age related PB of 77.30% (that's my time as a %age of the 5k world record for my age) very pleased with this ,almost amazed, ...

  3. Vets cycling and running some initial observations.

    Did some good, if short, bike rides in Switzerland,lovely smooth hilly lanes and paths. I was 6th out of 42 in the running TT in the mens over 50's section, felt the altitude a bit on the climbs it wa...

  4. Vets cycling and running some initial observations.

    More Zwifting today, the London Boxhill loop (there was vitual rain on Boxhill!). Tried a bit harder then I intended mainly bacause I cranked the turbo setting from the default 50% to 100% this means ...

  7. Vets cycling and running some initial observations.

    Thanks Alex it's pretty clear that a lot of the overall improvement that has happened to TT times over the past couple of years is down to Trainerroad and the like. I'll probably stick with Zwift up t...

  8. Vets cycling and running some initial observations.

    After being injured for about 6 weeks I'm just about back in the swing of my running season ,my first for 11 years. Got a bit of data now and it's quite interesting.In my 4 races I've been the fastest...

  9. Gently Bentley 200k Audax

    Here's one for next spring being run by the Wheelers, looks about asĀ  flat a 200k as you could do in west /southwest London. It's on my to do list (if I'm not in Texas). Starts at Surbiton. 18th Marc...
