    its all quiet on the western front…. has anyone been doing any miles over the last few days? Or laziness all round?

    Me, mark and rich did Whitby on Sunday. The first 4 miles out of Whitby is a bit of a killer.. a slow uphill drag! Not easy after fish n chip ! 😆 Nice ride though. I preferred the way there (coast route).

    I’m off out on my tod tonight for a few miles. Not sure where yet though.

    Nothing new in the “organise a ride” thread either 😕

    Must admit that I haven’t been out on the bike for 2 weeks now 😳

    The weather has been atrocious, what happened to summer?

    Just got back from Westbrooks after having a new rim put on the rear wheel of my OCR. Went for a Mavic CXP 22.

    Very good service again from the lads in there, considering they had to order the rim in and build up the wheel, all done very quickly and at a damned reasonable price. 😀

    Anyway, as a consequence, I had planned to ride tonight but now don’t have time, and I’m not that fussed anyway as the weather out Stokesley way, or rather just beyond was looking quite atrocious. Think I’ll save myself for Saturday, and just be content with fitting my new Garmin Edge to the bikes.

    😀

    Yes, you do. 😉

    Trouble is Grant, when you decide to ride you can, particularly on the flat, and at least on the climbs you dig deep, trouble is, we haven’t seen much of you lately.

    Been on holidays for the last week to Ashbourne in Derbyshire. No cycling but had a good time despite the rain.

    Had been back all of about 10 minutes when I headed out on the bike for a quick blast round the lanes.
