Re: Jenn Ride 2020

there is a ticket going Bit confused now. Thought it was postponed til 2021?? Or have i missed an email since the last update?? :smile: I would assume that if you buy a ticket now you'll be able to do it in 2021. Pent up demand for events next year might make them particularly hard to get into!

Re: Veloviewer map - explorer tiles

Sadly it will still mean needing Strava premium.

Re: Fatfighters 2020

I have the different size legs thing... I'm more annoyed by it than I should be, I guess mostly because I was always quite happy with the musculature of my legs.

Would love a BB200 this year, last time I entered (2018) I crashed and broke a shoulder so that was that. fingers crossed everything okay by time it comes round.
The key is to keep riding after you've broken something...

Re: Veloviewer map - explorer tiles

I wonder if it might be possible to get the squares into any other route mapping sites (what with Strava now being premium only for that). Might be nice to get back to a bit of this when I get out on the bike again.

Re: Looking ahead - what are you looking forward to?

I don't think I'll ever be able to do a 300 again. Very unlikely my hip could cope with that. I'd really love to be able to finish a 200. God knows how long it would take. I don't think stopping would be a good idea because I struggle enough to sleep in a normal bed now due to pain... and mornings a...

Re: Looking ahead - what are you looking forward to?

Shall we alI send you pics Rich, at least you could have some of the experience???😂 Well, I would hope that I would be at any events. Sending pics of the solo stuff wouldn't be much good. :P Thing is, last event was January... next one looking like August, if we're lucky. That's one hell of a gap w...

Re: Fatfighters 2020

Will start posting again in the hope that it'll get me to stop feeling sorry for myself and try and improve things... 14/02/20 - 70.5kg ---------------- 08/05/20 - 68.1kg (+0.1kg) 15/05/20 - 69.2kg (+1.1kg) 22/05/20 - 69.4kg (+0.2kg) No current target as no events scheduled.

Re: Looking ahead - what are you looking forward to?

Honestly (and I appreciate this is unusually soppy for me), it would just be nice to see everyone again. I really look forward to meeting up with friends at the various events and it's getting me down that it's likely to be 4-5 months total without seeing anyone. =/

Hoping to at least not put on any more weight this week. I guess if nothing else at least I'm no heavier than I was when the thread started.

Re: Fatfighters 2020

Would be nice to get out again. I've still got some not insignificant psychological (on the bike) issues stemming from my crash and the only way I'm going to be able to get on top of them is with regular riding to train my brain to realise that it's (relatively) safe. But as I said in the other thre...

Re: Jenn Ride 2020

Just saw the postponement... probably a sensible decision.

Will be nice to have something to look forward to either way, and hopefully by that point I might actually be fit enough to ride it!

Re: Fatfighters 2020

Bugger, sorry to hear that. I know how hard it is to even give a crap about the idea of doing anything when depressed nevermind actually doing the anything. I'm not great at admitting weakness, but I'll be honest, getting sick after working so hard to recover after my injury has pretty much broken ...

Wheels have completely fallen off for me. Struggling with depression so really not watching what I eat / drink to the level I need to.

Re: If we close up for a bit...

For me it's still about risk of additional stress on the health system. Personal experience tells me cycling is significantly riskier than going to the shops. :lol:

Re: If we close up for a bit...

Sadly the data backs up that assertion. Workers in low-skilled jobs are the most likely to die after contracting Covid-19, with male security guards among those with the highest death rates, new figures reveal. Male construction workers, taxi drivers, bus and coach drivers, plant processing workers ...

Re: If we close up for a bit...

Still not doing anything other than walks outdoors. Hundreds of people are still dying every day, and we're a LONG way away from getting a proper handle on this, especially now as we'll see an uptick from people going back to work / travelling via public transport / socialising more etc. I get that ...
