Re: Club runs - 14th Jan

Carolyne et al. sorry to have left without saying bye.

Andy, Si and I we were freezing so Si took the lead and speed-up a bit the pace. I felt better after that.
We have a no-stop run about 60/65 km and it allowed me to be at home around 12:30 (afternoon at work :( )

Thanks Andy and Si. It was nice!

Re: Club runs - 12th November

Thanks Stuart for leading an epic A-ride.
The weather was strong enough to remind me that "winter is coming" is now "winter is here".

Sorry to Andy, Adam, Jess and you for not saying
Bye but I lost you all 9 km before home.

See you soon :)

Re: Club runs - 12th November

An early start is a good idea (GF in aggro).
If work does not call me in Bristol, probably I will be on the match.
Thanks Stuart

Re: CYCLOCROSS TRAINING SESSION 14/09/17

I was yesterday late afternoon (around 5ish for 40 min or so).

I've never seen all these squirrels in my life :)

Nice park, quite place but pay attention because there are a lot of sh*it haha

I hope next Thursday we can make a gruppetto in there. However, I did not see stairs to practice :(

Re: How do you find the time?!?

I don't have kids, but I do have a lot on so can struggle to get the time I want quite often. The things I've found that help me. - I try and plan for my weeks slots at the beginning of the week (Sunday evening), nothing too formal, just a personal commitment to when stuff is going to happen around...

Re: Volunteers for Cyclo-cross September 3rd

Re: Club runs - 20th August

Thanks for the 3 beacons who stopped to help me fix the chain. I had to pedal very gently to get back home.
Next time I will be better set up!

Big drin drin from my bell!

Re: Club runs - 18th June

Thank you Chris for leading us during the A-ride.
I literally boiled up my legs 10/15 km before reaching home.
Sorry if I did not say bye to everyone :O

Let's go for the next!
