  • Commute to Shoreditch

    Commute to Shoreditch My cycling partner has returned from his two weeks weight-to-power ratio camp. This has not stopped him.

    Solo ride in the Sunshine This morning, in a seemingly brief gap in the showers I went out for a solo ride, tried to keep the HR and effort low, I know that if I’m on the club run tomorrow and commuting Monday & Tuesday, I need to preserve the legs.  Lovely ride though.   […]

  • Denia Training Camp: Rest Day 2/Wet Ride Day
