Flapjack and cappuccino!

Anyone get out this weekend? Discretion won out here - ice and temperature ensuring Zwift miles only…

I went out today, only 19 miles but limited to the hillier and higher ground due to flood water on the flat lowlands.

At least the hills are warming in the cold, the temp today was 4ºc which is about the coldest i venture out these days, and average speed is down to 14mph although i’m not in any hurry don’t think i could go any faster if i tried :sweat_smile:

It is nice to get out tho’.

Icy roads and temperature not rising above 0°C meant it’s not worth the risk. But had a couple of nice local walks. Coffee was a very fine home brewed El Salvador and cake was a fruit currant square. Cheers!

Managed 60k yesterday - a bit stupid really (temp never got above +3 C) but my son was keen to get out. He fell off half way on black ice which meant I managed to drop him later on :rofl:.

His bike was unscathed most importantly!

I bought one of these for a very accident prone friend.

Too icy for anything at home, our roads have too many shady and ungritted patches, and some still very wet/frozen from rain early in the week.

Still too darn cold, windy and wet here in The cotswolds. A couple of riders I go out with for Club Rides have come a’cropper, one of them suffered a broken collarbone, the other a fractured pelvis so I’m staying put for the time being.

Warmer today so headed out. Roads mucky so covered in mud by the time got back but 64 miles in the legs so happy :grinning:

60km ride today on the cyclo-cross/winter bike. The first ride in a fortnight, as the temperatures have risen. But still chilly and breezy. Felt like hard work, but infinitely better than the turbo. All ‘money in the bank’ for spring and summer.

Got out for 80k with a few chums :grinning:

Strong north-westerly wind made progress challenging - but never seemed to be behind us? :face_with_symbols_over_mouth::face_with_symbols_over_mouth::rofl::rofl:

115k today. Starting to feel like I’m making progress. Watts up, weight down. Still a long way to go…

First ride in 3 weeks yesterday, for a variety of reasons. Felt old and creaky!

Chilly, but sunny blue skies and light winds made for a very pleasant February 60km ride this morning. Calorie count said 1753Cal, so I can have guilt free cake for the rest of the day. :grin:

Only 19 country miles for me today but this trumps these wimpy little kilometre type rides any day of the week! :sweat_smile:

A very pot holed and bumpy five mile part of my hilly 19 mile course has been expertly resurfaced with new tarmac, and is now like the preverbal billiard table. The difference is really delightful :smiley: :+1:
