    Sounds epic Gavin. Fully expecting some nutters to give this a go following your write-up. Well done for getting round.

    Where Do I Start?

    One pedal rotation at a time Kent, on the very positive side you do still want to ride the bike. Hope to see you out a lot more once the contract is secured and you don't have to do any more work

    Sunburnt Chilblains - The Pyrenees!

    Sounds like a great time...
  11. It's coming to that time of the winter when I am thinking about upping the intensity of the training, and that is after the i-Team winter training camp at the end of January!! The winter has been all about the base for me, a combination of rollers, turbo and club rides with the emphasis on controlled work. For each week between November and February has been... 1 roller session - 65% ftp power session, 5 x 15 minute efforts 1 turbo session - CTS Hill Repeats session 1 track session at Mountbatten - high intensity session 1 or 2 road rides at the weekend and out on the road if I have a day off Since Christmas I have also added a Monday night circuit training session in the local village hall, I used to do this a couple of years ago and I have been really pleased with my fitness improvement since the and can feel the benefit of doing this 'off-bike' training too And the next phase to the clock change at the end of March... With the upcoming Sportive and racing season it's time for me to increase the intensity and with 2 winters of base in place I think this will be ok. I have started on the following... 1 turbo session - CTS cycling for fitness or criterium training (for variety) 1 roller session - 85% ftp power session 1 circuit training session 1 Mountbatten track session (weather permitting), I know rule #5 and all that... Weekend - try to get in two rides each weekend, The increase on last years is the phased increase in the Saturday club rides to riding to and from home to them (an additional 40 or 50 miles depending on meet point), I already ride to and from Rowlands which means a metric century every other weekend and am riding home from the Cowplain ride (using the train to get almost there in the morning), thanks to all who have kept me company on the return... There is also a pretty busy looking Sportive and racing program in place so it's looking like a very busy spring!!

    A Review Of 2011 In Numbers

    My 2011 in numbers… 5299 miles ridden + 229 miles for January not on Garmin 122 miles, longest single ride (Dragon Sportive) 193544 calories burnt 200 approximately the number of times I got on the bike 1 European sportive 3 rides over 100 miles 15 rides between 50 and 99 miles 8 BC race points earned 45.6 mph, max speed Harting Hill 25.2 mph highest average speed for race 182 bpm max heart rate 96 km total climbing – seems unlikely but that is what the Garmin claims 4981 metres, most climbing in a single day at La Marmotte 1 competition won (it was a biggie though) :D 4 bikes in the garage, well over "n" except 2 were free 1000 on a scale of 1 to 10 the enjoyment I have had on the bike in 2011 Thanks everyone for making 2011 a really great year for me on the bike. :D
