  3. Hi not sure if this is the correct place to ask. Is there any group rides this Sunday? 

    I may be able to get a few hours.

      It's the perfect place to post quick questions Steve :)

  4. 2018! 2018! OMG! I have been a member of i-team for 11.5 years. I have just enjoyed Dani Rowe (nee King!) winning the Madison TT with her team mate Kirsten Wild at Revolution in Manchester. Inspiring and proud to be a member of the team, when she and Jon Dibben were still clints in Guy's coaching eyes.

    This year will be a cycling year...  I'm determined... I have a goal to ride the Tour de Yorkshire Sportive finishing in my home city of Leeds this year - crossing the finish line very near to where I work.

    There are some of us that are interested in coming across in the first week of March, do you need us to arrive on a certain day or for example could we arrive on 1st  departing on 8th March. Would be great if you could come out on a couple of rides with us. We would most probably hire a minibus at Palma to get us to you. Look forward to hearing from you in the meantime I will try and get 6 of us together.

  6. Hi Everyone, 

    if anybody would like to get away for some winter training, in Jan/Feb/March, I have some accomadation in Porta Pollenca,Mallorca. Its a beach front apartment that sleeps 6 and I have use of another apartment that also sleeps 6. It’s shared accomadation, with single beds, which work at £75 a bed, per week. Transfers from Palma airport are around £75.00 return, cheaper if there’s more of you. 

    Please message me if your interested, I’m there most of the time and I can show you some routes if you’ve never been before. 

    Merry Christmas Nige

  7. Hi Matt

    Karen and I are keen to join you all and Karen says that Mandy Middleton is also keen. At present we are OK for all the dates which people have mentioned.  Many thanks for taking this on. Cheers?

    1. Matt_Doe


      Thanks for the reply Tony.  I'll get a confirmed date up on the thread shortly.

  8. Hi all,

    I’d like to bring my fitness up with some midweek training. Can anyone recommend a turbo trainer? Ideally I’d like to sync my Strava account to it and have it mimic real world routes. I’d be using my Condor Classico with it but I guess they are pretty universal. That said I know that Direct mounts can be awkward with compatibility. As you might tell I don’t know much about them so I’d like to get some advice before I go making purchases on eBay.

      Thanks both, 

      I think I’ll go with the Trax Flow t2240 then. Christmas is coming!

      sorry Craig. Don’t think the rollers will help me as I want to build my climbing ability so I will need something that will give me resistance. I don’t think the rollers will do that. 

    3. Matt_Laakvand


      Lol, if I never went out again I’d miss you. Thanks for the advice peeps. Now just need to save some pennies up.

    4. Karen_Lillington


      We use Traineroad 9.99 a month good training plans and can upload to Strava....dont think you get the Zwift experience with it but think it may be cheaper - just need a PC or  iPad an ant thingy

  9. Thanks for the ride today Luke (I assume I have the correct one, think photo might be a bit out of date). Good route and well led.

  10. New clothing ordering window now open until the end of September - See Club Clothing Forum at the bottom of the Team Hub Page -  See Club


    1. Eli_Tucker


      thanks Guy I have finally managed to order a new shirt for Eli - he is still wearing one from aged 10 when he first joined! It works better on the Mac than on my iPhone which was probably the problem I had before.  S

  11. Hi, How do I go about purchasing a jersey. I've read the articles on the site but I can't work it out even so.

    1. Guy_Watson


      Hi Matt - Scroll Down and check out the 'Club Clothing' Forum Section - we are probably at the point where I need to open another ordering window - anyone after more clothing yey guys?

    2. Matt_Laakvand


      Thank you Guy. I will keep an eye out for the order window 

    3. Neil_Lucas


      ....yes please Guy.

  12. Venue and circuit change for the last few chaingang sessions folks. Meet at the Bird in Hand pub in Lovedean at 6:30 for a few laps of the Hinton Daubney circuit - or just stop at the pub!

  13. Hi All, is anyone around this Sunday for a spin? I'm starting to struggle to get out as much on Saturdays and need to switch to Sunday rides more and more. I'm told there is an unofficial club ride on a Sunday at 9:30am.

      Hi Niel,

      Great see you at Rowlands. I don't have a plan but I'm sure any Sunday regulars will have a route.

    3. Andy_Redding


      There is usually a small group of the usual suspects at the cafe from 09:30 onwards Matt, although quite a few are away for the next couple of weekends.

      The Sunday rides vary between a gentle bimble and a total tear up - depending on who is there and if anybody is hung over!

    4. Matt_Laakvand


      Hi Andy, funny I was just typing a message to you but saw this notification pop up. I've stayed away from the 9:30 from RC as I know the standard is quite high and I didn't want to hold people up, though I'm feeling stronger and stronger these past weeks. I'll come along on Sundays from now on and see how it goes. Doesn't mean you won't see me on a Saturday, just less of them. 

      Went out with FWCC last Sunday but I felt dirty afterwards nice as they were. If you'll have me I'll see you on a Sunday once you get back from France (good luck BTW). I'd like to see where you think I am in terms of my ability as I've been working towards joining the Cawplain group but not until I'm strong enough, which I know is a way off yet.

  14. For everyone going to France this week, please see final admin notes in the thread.

  15. 22:37! Caitlin sets a new Youth / Junior / Senior Female club 10 record!

  20. New ordering window for club kit open until 21st April - see topic in Clothing Forim

  21. Thank you fellow i-teamers for the flowers that arrived today. They will most certainly help me on way to my recovery......and to match that I had a little spin on my turbo this afternoon.  The ribs didn't complain so I think I will give it another go tomorrow.  I don't want to be starting from scratch in 6 weeks time. or I will never keep up.  Thanks again great to be part of such a lovely biking community.
