Has any discussion taken place for this week's venue?

If anyone's up for the Spiritual Home I'll pop along.   I am riding to work that day so can route via there.

I need a shake down ride for this weekend, so Spiritual Home would be a good option to try it out and (famous last words) not have too much beer :D

Works for me. Hopefully the resident ultracyclist will be on hand to talk through what happened to his bike on Saturday.

I'm back on gears.   I hate my bike after Sunday's experience.   Carlos will be pleased.

I have promised the family dinner at the pub on Wed so I should be there about 8.   If I get out of work early I'll pop home first, otherwise I will divert that way.   We can admire the building work.

No, no, no, I never want anyone to fall out of love with their bike, even if it is a daft one.

Bum sore? Legs like liquorice? What went wrong?

I finished OK.   Fixed is ideal in circumstances within a normal range so a bit hilly is OK but really hilly needs gears.   The same applies with the wind.

I run quite a big gear which is normally fine but 250k into a headwind on Sunday was just too much of a grind.   I'm a bit more sore than I normally would be and I hurt more than after the 2 hilly 600s that I have done this year.   Also the Brooks on this one is a year old and is showing no signs of breaking in.   All will sort itself out in a few days but I have swapped back to the geared bike as I have a couple of days of touring and then a lumpy 1000k mid-July.

I plan to use the same fixed bike on the Grand in Sep but I might swap the gear for something smaller.
