Mountain bike ride in Reno, Nevada
Today I am staying with old friends in Reno Nevada. Steve took me out on the mountain bike, we did a 3:45 ride, hard ride, definitely feel like I did some work. We did something like 30 or 35 miles off road climbing round near lake Tahoe. Amazing scenery with great views. I did fall […]
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. Another very fast speed, although overall time a bit slower. Legs feeling three days in a row.A gorgeous sunny day, although that sun is very low when we start, direct in the eyes at some […]

Recovering, but still looking a bit like a train-crash….
I’ve gone to HQ in California on business, this time with the train-crash victim look. I’m worried they are going to get the wrong impression of me… The majority of the plasters are off, and the healing process well under way. The cuts on the bridge of my nose are proving more resilient. I spent […]
