- anyone NOT ridden this xmas.
came home from work ill last thursday, in a mates van with my bike in the back.
he has just phoned me to tell me it is still there and that he will drop it at work tomorrow.
i told him to keep it until new years day.
still ill, and not ridden a sodding inch this xmas.
ps, after a week of coughing up very green mucus mixed with blood clots, should i pay a visit the the doctors?Posted 3 months agowhitestoneMember
Went out last Saturday but nothing since then. Will be out next week somewhere.
What happens between Xmas and New Year isn’t going to affect what happens between New Year and Xmas.Posted 3 months agolungeSubscriber
Me! Commuting tomorrow though so that’ll be 30 miles or so.Posted 3 months agoprawnySubscriber
Cough sounds nasty, I’d get that looked at.
On the original question, I’ve not ridden since *checks strava* 19th of November 😳 And that was only riding back from dropping the car at the garage. Bloody hell, need to sort that out.
Been puking and shitting myself over Christmas though so won’t rush back too soon, probably my traditional New Year’s Day pre dawn bimble will be the first one back.Posted 3 months agoscc999Subscriber
Might get out between now and NY – which would be nice.
If I don’t get out then that’s ok too. I try not to beat myself up about my lack of motivation at this time of year.Posted 3 months agodhriderMember
Me – also been ill for a week coughing up all sorts of green stuff, generally feeling miserable and no energy.
Hopefully the antibiotics will kick in soon but literally no interest in going near my bike at the min.Posted 3 months agoCheesybeanZSubscriber

Been out on the bike once in four months. ☹DracSubscriber
Me but I never have always took time off the bike over Xmas for indulgence.
Pop to a walk in centre sounds like a chest infection.Posted 3 months agoKucoSubscriber

I’ve been ill for weeks. Took a couple of days off at the beginning of December, but it’s been hanging around ever since.Posted 3 months ago
I had to ride up to the 24th, but I’ve had a couple of days off and I’m not going out tomorrow, maybe my cold will bugger off.idiotdogbrainMember
Not ridden the proper MTB since 22nd September. Weather has been so rubbish I just can’t be bothered with getting cold, soaking wet and muddy tbh. Fair weather rider and proud of it..!Posted 3 months agothestabiliserMember
Me, family time over the main days of the season innit. Gonna do a road spin tomorrow though, before I crack and tell the wife and kids what I really think of them! 😜Posted 3 months ago
Also ladzzzz (well, old blokes) bike ride on 30th, might be beer involved afterwardsta11pau1Subscriber
Nope, my last ride was the 13th December. It’s been so wet here that most trails are under water or bogs, even ‘gravel’ rides end up caked in mud.
I find hard to get the enthusiasm to go out for a road only ride too.
Fingers crossed things start drying up this side of June…Posted 3 months agowoody21Subscriber
Nope – recovering from knee surgeryPosted 3 months agomunrobikerMember
Nope. Did the 100 day challenge which ends on Christmas Eve and then devote Christmas week to family, friends and indulgence. I’ll ride again with my pals on New Year’s Day.Posted 3 months ago
Me. Urinary infection early last week so fever and weeing a trickle of razorblades – first time off work for many years.
Getting ready for some fresh air and exercise, but definitely not cx racing on Sunday.Posted 3 months agoDickBartonMember

My main Xmas pressie from mrsTH this year was a fierce cold, given to me a week before Xmas, I’m hoping to get out for a bit tomorrow, then hamsterley on Sunday.Posted 3 months agovondallySubscriber
Me…injuries most of the year,neck and spine issues plus other silly injuries …. miserablePosted 3 months agoargeeSubscriber
As per other comments, had the cold last week, it’s all but gone now but riding hasn’t happened due to a mixture of family time and just terrible weather, the latter being annoying as i could have got an hour or two on the bike, but you then factor in the cleaning and travelling and it’s just not viable, and i just went down the playpark with my daughter instead.Posted 3 months agohot_fiatSubscriber
Me. Got the snip on the 14th. Hopefully this weekend I can get out for a little pootle around the woods.Posted 3 months agomartymacSubscriber

Been off work sick for a few days, coughing up green crap.
Back tomorrow, up to the 31st, then off 1/2/3, working 4/5 then off for 17 days from the 6th.
Hoping to get out and ride then.
Not entirely bad though, I’m still losing weight, T2 diabetes and careful diet is seeing to that.reluctantjumperSubscriber
Planned a ride a few times but something has always got in the way! Hopefully getting out tomorrow morning for a lap at Afan, although now I’ve written that something will torpedo that plan too.Posted 3 months agochestrockwellMember
Not ridden this Christmas, not ridden much since the summer. Boo.Posted 3 months agojekkylSubscriber
crawling the walls itching to get out, I’d be out every day if possible but apparently holidays are for family time even though **** family time seems to mean everyone in different rooms watching screens.Posted 3 months agofudge9202Member
Me. But intend to be out full on in the New Year on gravel bike until I get the El Mariachi built up, when I’m back from the USA.Posted 3 months agoiaincSubscriber
Nope, not since a major injury in October.Posted 3 months agoNorthwindSubscriber

just ride when you can for **** sake, stop being so **** melodramatic as some of us will never ride againPosted 3 months agoMing the MercilessSubscriber
Me, not ridden since early December. The state of the Downs has beaten me at the moment ☹️Posted 3 months agowhatyadoinsuckaMember
A mix of blood from your cough get booked in, for a few years running I had a heavy chest coughs and antibiotics sorted it in the end, doc said always get in for that..
Been ok this winter so far and last winter too, although had family over with 3 under 5 and a few other kids around yesterday..
bike park today, lady bower loop tomorrow, hopefully 3-4 local shot fest Sunday followed by Xmas dinnerPosted 3 months agon0b0dy0ftheg0atMember
Only if you count turbo rides, when I did a proper training session on Xmas Day and the gentlest short recovery on Boxing Day.
Last commute was on Xmas Eve, last outdoor non-commute of note (i.e. not just a few mins pootle for groceries) was back in Prestatyn in early November.
Trying to convince myself to do a Gran Fondo to South Harting today, will be the first I’ve done in months (August?), barely done any compared to 2018 and I’ve not ridden to South Harting this year.Posted 3 months ago
Hi Soma. Didn’t know / sorry to hear it has progressed that far. Are you still getting some fresh air locally, mate’s farm etc or just stuck inside?Posted 3 months agoNobeerinthefridgeMember
Yip, no biking at all, but today will be 4th day hillwalking this week. 🙂Posted 3 months agotrail_ratMember

Legs will still be there when I get backPosted 3 months agoscaredypantsSubscriber

Aww man just when we were feeling bad for somafunk, this pops up; first the running, now this. Chin up, nobeer

Nope, bloody sciatica struck on Sunday. Got a bit more feeling in my foot and less pain in my calf today, so might try and fit a gentle bumble in today unless I’m made to go sofa shopping.Posted 3 months agojam boSubscriber
Not ridden a bike since October…
Although I blew my ankle up trail running yesterday so I might need to dust off the road bike for some low impact cardio while it recovers. The local trails round here are like a swamp and I just can’t be bothered with mtb’ing in those conditions anymore.Posted 3 months agoHounsSubscriber
Me, CBA.Posted 3 months agokelvinSubscriber
Chest infection here as well. On top of broken ribs. Still, good time for down time and eating yourself back to health.Posted 3 months ago
