censored all sleep, bike loaded into the van and now sat on the coach waiting for the transfer

Tbh - not seen another single speed yet

After hopefully completing the ride, big beer is planned obviously

    I’m beyond envious. Would love a go at that ride.

    Just not on a single speed. :lol:

    gears are good

    tweety birds are tweeting, off for a ride when it gets light, temperature already 11, great days, though forecast showers dissuade me from switching to the wheels with fresh tubs

    Pissing down with rain here, park run cancelled due to flooding so will be fixing bikes this morning.

    Do they have beer stops on the paris-roubaix? Might take away some of the single speed pain :D

    Morning All. Parkrun may be missed today as feeling fragile from over indulgence last night. May run or even ride later if it's dry, rain promised any time now. Chilling out wkend for a change, good luck on the ride TLW. TLW you're officially a sadist doing the ride on a single speed.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Pretty sure I’m significantly more comfortable than TLW at this point in time. Second cup of tea done and about to put the coffee on. Need to pop round to borrow garden shredder off a mate then trimming back bushes and an olive tree. Deep joy. Should get some brownie points for doing so at least.

    I think there's a reason why he hasn't seen another single speed.

    Good lie in and taking the hound off to agility classes shortly. Should be good for a laugh if nothing else.

    Morning
    Breakfasted on the patio in the sunshine unfortunately it’s now p*ssing down. A bit sore from yesterday’s four plus trudge, I wonder why fours walking hurts more than fours on the bike.
    Today will a turbo session at best as we have friends threatening to visit.

    I'm alive, just in pain, a lot of pain

    Great ride, highly recommended, just don't ask me to join you just yet- need the hands and arms to recover first

    Well done TLW, it just goes to show the magical properties of beer, cider and wine. I raise a glass of some Belgian monk-made looney juice in your general direction. :D

    I raise my glass of Poperings Hommel Bier to you. Did you really do P-R on a single speed? Nutter.

    I ache, but not as much as TLW does. Productive day, tree and shrubs lopped, fixed a broken window latch and a dodgy light switch. Now drinking a beer.

    Well done on completing it with a fair old handicap. What other acts of random masochism do you have planned?

    Nice one.
    Did you manage to spot any other Singlespeeds?

    In other news, tubeless sucks.

    Nothing in comparison yet, crit race on Sunday if my legs recover

    To aid this, tomorrow will mostly be sitting in the sun at the velodrome, watching the riders come in whilst drinking ale
