    HOW WINDY IS TOO WINDY? Can a rider get blown over? Have you?

    Hi Ric moved yet ? :) If you can remember me we rode for a few miles around Cowbridge awhile ago, (had to go home when the wife called :eek: ) Still back to the topic, I thought I'd post the obligatory Welsh hill post, it has to be riding over the Black Mountains only a few weeks ago whilst...

    Do hills have rhythm

    Ewep AC/DC, my god that takes me back to my youth. 1981 Donington Monsters of Rock Festival:D 18 years old wide eyed and looking for life. Back to the subject though the more I think about it, the more I'm convinced it's about finding a good rhythm and then nailing it.:D though I haven't had...

    Max Heart Rate

    Bloody HRM's. I'd like to hear about this also because since buying one last month I'm getting paranoid. My HR lives in the 150-170's, hitting hills it's 180's and I noticed today it hit 190. Coming down the hills it drops back down very quickly to the low 100's but should I be concerned ...

    Do hills have rhythm

    Hi Steve and Vo2 and everybody it's been a while. Apart from waiting for the obvious jokes (come on I'm dying to hear them) it's a serious question. Do hills have a rhythm that is best suited to them ? I ask this question because today I climbed a hill and it felt just right. The tempo was...

    The great rugby discussion

    Wales = Wails or as you pointed out Whales, which brings to mind a large slow ponderous animal. Yep that about sums up welsh rugby. :)

    Are you in a club?

    No I still haven't been to a club meet, though I have started to join up with the guys from MTB-Wales for some social rides.

    The great rugby discussion

    Lazy Legs your right about the best players being in the crowd, because no matter how bad my local team played I always talked a good game. I'm also with you about England, THEY ARE AWESOME. Okay the forwards are getting old and this will be their last chance to win the WC, so I figure it's...

    The great rugby discussion

    This thread is still alive;) I'm amazed:D I've finally kicked my rugby habit it seems, because when I saw a scoreline of 55-3, the first thought that came into my head was "Wow what a gear ratio that would make":D

    how long do you ride a day?

    Week days I commute 4.5miles/7kms each way and now that the evenings are getting lighter I usually go for a 1 hour ride as well.Which could be 10 miles up the mountain or longer if I'm on the road ( I should say I intend to go for one hour rides somehow they never end after just one hour)...

    How you all doing ?

    Vo2 How are you ? doing fine I hope and breaking all records. I've been busy elsewhere closer to home and generally getting on with things, only to find that it's been ages since I posted here. I'm still Mr Mediocre on the bike but I'm happy and that's all that counts. Nice to hear from you...

    Hi Steve,Vo2 and everyone. How are you all doing ? Hope your doing good. Vo2 a rugby thread !:D by the way the answer's England. Did you get the mess sorted out after you had your car stolen or did you spend the insurance money on a new bike. I'm still riding that bloody roadbike that you...

    Sick people coming to work

    Lazy Legs you have very very valid reasons for being mad and I don't blame you. I'd also like to tell you about myself, I'm proud to say I've been selected to be a Bone marrow donor, Whilst catching a cold doesn't really hurt me, it can have drastic repercussions. Somebody Somewhere is very...

    Sick people coming to work

    Yep you've guess it. i've been infected by some almighty germ generously brought to work by a fellow worker ! They spent all last week sniffing and coughing, and on one occassion grabbing me after I told one man to keep his distance. Saturday I didn't feel quite right but still went for a...
