hi there, welll errrrrrrrrrrrrr. as i said before i am onmi winter bike, so peddling along on pretty quickley, what i failed to point out was that i went out with this bloke to "DO IM IN " which i did, we are off again this wednesday, 110 kms into spain, but i will go on mi winter bike and peddle away in 38x 21,23,27.. oh i may go onto my big ring which is a 45...FredC said:Aren't you going to knock the gearing down a notch or three and start pedalling again? What's the point of big nick at this time of the year?
FFS ride the climb on a pedalling gear, and keep a high cadence. I'm slogging my stones off here to get them to ride 42x20 for 100miles on a Sunday. It's bloody hard work though. There are a few believers including Dave. I was speaking to Paul Paterson tonight (Liv. Merc.) and we are all off the same mind about encouraging younsters. Pete Matthews is on the case as well, and has done something about it also. Slowly, but very slowly I think some sort of progress is being made.
The President of the BC/BCF Brian Cookson doesn't like me because I ask too many questions. Ho effing Ho. So now we've got Peter Matthews and Paul Paterson from Merseyside on board, plus Guy Elliot from the West Midlands, and of course the great Legro, and Rafiki from Manchester, when he turns up again. I get on rather well with Stuart Benstead, but he wants me to share responsibility for some projects regarding local council lobbying. I'd love to, but I'm physically goosed, and Hillingdon is an awkward place to get to from here.
I'm dancing as fast as I can.
Best regards to all readers.
