Speed, not sure, the fastest I have been is around 60mph on the Buttertubs but I doubt it was anywhere near that fast, though no doubt it would feel very fast on a bike. The noise? Well there were two noises, the sound of probably deep section carbon rims and then the brakes, they did sound a bit rough possibly noisy disc brakes made to sound worse by the tiny microphone in the camera.What sort of speeds would he reach? What was the noise?
Don't mind a bit of rain, a bit of wind can also be ok, but what is annoying me about the current spell of weather is the inconsistentancy. How I can I plan what to wear when the weather changes like I change gears. It's been clear blue skies, torrential rain and hail in the last hour.Lovely lunchtime ride today; quick 25K flat out in-between meetings. A bit windy, but first time out in summer gear without feeling chilly at any point. Roll on the longer evenings!
Hats off to Joe Barr, not for the feint hearted Ultra distance cycling. I shall follow his progress. Not for me either, 200kms is my enjoyable limit and I can't see the point (for me) after that. I would like to do a long distance ride, but with the intent of stopping in accommodation and eat and sleep to enjoy the next day.
They are the worst things I have ever ridden and come out about once every couple of years to be ridden round to the local hostelry , about 1 mile and it feels like 20 miles with there riding position !!!Very cool looking, must be quite inefficient though I bet they are popular with the cool kids :) , I think they need a big Harley engine in them.
The good thing about no longer working, I managed another 100K this morning, very hilly and great views so I'll bore you with another couple of photo's.It was lovely out there again today, managed a sneaky 40k at lunchtime.
My road bike, a 2020 volare 931 with old dura ace 7900 and a 4iiii precision pro pm
Lovely frames those Genesis Reynolds stainless steel. Absolute looker.
And my mountain bike, 2019 solaris max (actually just sold it as I dislocated my shoulder crashing it in October and needed to remove the temptation to do more damage)
