sod the lot of them wobbley, ride till you cant any more.


I wish I could get to the 25 mark but thats in my dreams. As for riding till I cant, thats probably next year with the way my knee's are :))

Sadly a ruptured medial horn of my meniscus put pay to my cycling and cricket in 2014.

I managed 29.32 for 10 miles 3 days after the injury, rode in absolute pain for the whole ride. The TT bike is sat in the garage never to be ridden again. The same injury claimed by Kent league cricket and my place in the Kent 50+ squad. I did get injured in the semi final and was allowed to be 12th man in the HOme counties final that Kent beat Surry to be champions in 2014. I was also allowed to collect a winners medal which I am very proud of.

Over here we have a term for you guys in Lycra! M.A.M.I.L.'s - Middle aged men in Lycra!

The roads are too bad where I live and my body couldn't take the abuse put through the 700c tires @ 100 psi.
I do still try to get out on the trails.
