TFC Winter Series and TFC Spring Series 1 Overall Winner

Posted on 27th May 2019 17:21:33

Turbo sessions can be great training but boring, zwift races are fun but not as targeted. This winter I tried to incorporate approximate training sessions such as low cadence drills or 5 min efforts into races. I'm not sure whether it worked or was the most efficient training but it certainly kept me motivated and I won the TFC Winter and Spring Series as a bonus.

Velothon Wales 2018 : 4hrs 10mins including a puncture.

Posted on 12th Feb 2019 21:09:42

On a hot day in July, 10 guys from the NFCC got up early for a 7.00am start on a hilly ride around South Wales. The Velothon Wales is a popular mass participation event and pro race which includes challenging hills such as Caerphilly and The Tumble. I managed to nurse a puncture to the finish from around 5km out and post the fastest finishing time but it was a good performance from all and the NFCC came in as the 6th fastest team.

2018 Cycling Trip to California

Posted on 11th Feb 2019 22:46:46

A lot of people want to visit the USA to see Disney land or Las Vegas or Broadway etc. I've always wanted to see Yosemite, The Grand Canyon, The Giant Sequoias, Crater Lake and all the other natural wonders. Well in September I travelled to California on a cycling trip to ride around some of those places and a few others too. The remainder will have to wait until next time. Read the full report here.

East Yorks, Ripponden and TLI.

Posted on 16th Jan 2019 00:09:14

August 2018 saw me travel to Yorkshire for the finale of the East Yorkshire Road Race League and the TLI RR. A 2nd place was the only reward but it was an enjoyable trip and there is some great cycling to be had in the Ripponden area. I even treated myself to fish and chips and a pint in the 13th century coaching inn at the bottom of Col de Ripponden Bank.

Morocco; first impressions.

Posted on 15th Dec 2018 22:35:18

Friendly people, lots of wide cycle lanes and great weather for December sum it up fairly well. My first foray out into the countryside around Marrakesh headed into the foothills of the Atlas mountains. However the highlight was probably the return into town when a few mopeds offered themselves up as durneys and we covered the last 25 miles in around a hour!

Downton 2018 and NFCC RR Trophy retained.

Posted on 8th Oct 2018 21:53:23

This year I found myself driving to the 2018 Downton 2 Day Road Race in heavy rain hoping it would be postponed. I took on the hill climb without enthusiasm and nearly froze during the road race. I then realised I was in danger of losing my NFCC Road Race trophy. Therefore I had to man up, get up early on Sunday and put in a decent effort on the TT bike when I'd only finished 2 all season.

2018 Birthday Ride

Posted on 24th Apr 2018 23:06:51

For my birthday ride, I set out with a group of friends hopeful of a sunny day ahead. Once around the Salisbury, the skies cleared and the countryside became particularly beautiful. After coffee, bacon sandwiches and cake at Bishopstone, we took on Howgate Hill and then enjoyed a quick ride back to home in time to watch the last third of Liege Bastogne Leige.
