Brother UK

March 2, 2011
Hi

Yes I know I have not blogged for a while, this will change I have to get in to the habit of doing it.

Well yesterday I went to Manchester for a meeting in Brother UK with Phil Jones. It was a great meeting and also great to talk to someone who wanted to listen to me about cycling and what I have done and how I became disabled. You can read a blog Phil did at  

Training is going good at the moment all seems to be on target, I have just done a power test for the BC so waiting to here from them about things.

If anyone is interested I am holding a training weekend down here in South Wales on March 11th, 12th and 13th. We have a 2h track session on the 11th on the 12th we are doing 200k ride over this years Dragon course so the riders wiith me can see if they want to do the 200k course in June and then 120k ride on the Sunday. If anyone wants to join me just let me know.

Hi

It has been a hard time over the last few days as I have been doing some good 100mile rides which were really hard due to the wind and then the weather changes to very cold. I went out on the road for one day and almost crashed 5 times in 45min on black ice. I got to one part of the road and there was a couple of cars crashed and traffic everywhere. Just managed to stay up right and got home again. Then I spent two days up in London as my brother-in-law is not very well and my wife is givin...

Hi

Well that was a bad day on the road it was very wet, gail force winds, fog and flooded roads, and because of the weather there were cars everywhere. I was say I hated every miniute of the ride today and was just glad to get home. I just hope it starts to clear up a bit for the weekend. What I need is some warm weather training anyone want to take me away.

Hi

See I am trying to blog

Today was a hard ride I was going up the mountains but due to gale force winds I stayed on the flat and had a good fast 3h30min. I pushed it hard for the middle hour and played with the rest of the time by doing some power work and some attacks on the rolling roads to see how long i could stay on top of the gear

I hope it will be the mountains tomorrow we shall see
