2010 - Frezza - Pasta Montegrappa

  1. Unreliability trial

    Not much has happened this past week but in an effort to release an interesting and entertaining weekly blog I've written one anyway... mostly about things I haven't done. The first thing that I haven't done is complete the Cambridge CC 75 mile reliability trial yesterday. I started but punctured early, there was too much snow and I wussed out. I managed to ride home finding it difficult to brake with my frozen wet fingers. Thawing them out was a painful process not dissimilar to the throbbing achiness ...

  2. False starts and the Mennonite hacker.

    The last few days have been spent hurriedly trying to get used to my TT bike as preparation for the Ely Hardriders 25 yesterday. A nice confidence boosting romp through the lanes with James Ward on Friday (thanks James!) was followed by a freezing trip to reconnoitre the course early on Saturday morning. I encountered several blizzards, extreme cold, bumpy surfaces and some wet freezing fenland mud (which I took home with me by attaching it to my bib tights). The plan was to take a trip to Hog Hill ...

  3. 2010 Team announcement!

    Greetings fellow cyclists and well wishers! Since I last posted on this blog I seem to have spoken to most of you who regularly read it (don't let the hit counter map on the left fool you, its about 7 and mostly from Cambridge).

The assumption of course is that people want ...
