    I’ll do a road ride tomorrow, nothing special really.

    Last ride was on the 8th by the look of it. Only have the road bike at the mo, and it’s just not been worth the hassle since then, as several roads near me are still flooded.

    Did 80miles in the rain on Friday on the road bike. Was riding solo and pushed myself too hard and now have a cough and cold for my troubles πŸ™

    It may of been yesterday’s ace blast around llandegla or it may be a razz on the hard tail today.
    Just back on the bike after 3 weeks of feeling like death. It’s so god to be turning circles

    Was out yesterday and planned to get out today and tomorrow but seem to have developed manflu πŸ™

    ride to the climbing wall yesterday.

    But as I’ve just spruced up wifey’s bike with “new” forks and a couple of other bits, I’ll probably take a spin round the block on that.

    Lucky wifey:

    Can anyone else see that? Just spent a few minutes trawling through google docs page source code to find the image url.

    Last Ride of 2012 by Alex Leigh, on Flickr

    Quiet/Flooded roads to the woods, quick play on some dry-ish trails and home for tea and medals. Just got me over the 200 hours riding for the year. CX bike is the one to have at the mo. 5 rides these hols, 3 have been on the Boardman!

    One more ride, a 62 miler and on the ‘retro’ bike for a bit of variety.

    Thought it might have been GT yesterday but probably a local loop tomorrow could be on the cards πŸ™‚

    Just a quick couple of hrs around Woburn this morning, v. slippy, quite muddy, but good for working off a couple of those extra mince pies i absorbed on the run up to christmas πŸ˜‰

    Just a wet couple of hours in Leigh Woods and Ashton Court this morning to round off 2012.

    2013 starts with a trip to Afan next Friday, then Cannock the following weekend. πŸ˜€

    Quick blast round Rivi this morning with vortex and Dave, managed to fit the ride in between two rain showers, the second of which is bloody miserable and looks like its here to stay. Need a day off tomorrow as I think I’m going out with some pretty quick fellas round Grizedale on New Years. Hopefully they’ll have hangovers, then I might be able to keep up!

    as Jo_h pointed out, Rivvy

    BUT

    I am hoping to try my SS Rigid 29er tomorrow if the fork turns up.

    Just back from Glentress, we did the red the blue. First time out on new bikes for two of us so was quite exciting! Back out on the 2nd of Jan! πŸ™‚

    All the best when it comes! πŸ˜‰

    Just back from Innerleithen, nice sloppy ride on some offpiste stuff run by Tweedlove followed by a wee play on the downhill trails. Short but sweet (and all the climbs dispatched about twice as fast as I’m used to, aaargh!)

    Bike washed- lasagna time.

    last one for me will be a road ride from Manchester Picadilly to Nantwich tomorrow, late afternoon. any idea’s on a route? πŸ™‚

    My last ride was on Sunday, a mix of forest roads, back roads and footpaths on my CX bike. I dont think Fife has had more than three days back to back this year without rain. Thank god I went away in the autumn for a bike tour. It would have been a miserable riding year without it.

    Starts planning something for next year with sun and quiet roads.

    Hopefully chicksands for a spin tomorrow before the rain comes. Otherwise it will have been Thetford on Friday.

    had a nice xc ride this morning,not the usual kind of ride I’d do but nice all the same, plympton-yelverton-meavy-princetown-aylesbarrow-meavy then home, 35ish miles nice weather for half of it howling freezing cold wind against for the other half….
    relaxing with a cuppa now before family get home from the panto,its quiet bliss.

    Just a quick blat around the local woods on CX bike, just to get past the 1000mile threshold.
    1st ride since october – 10 days skiing doesn’t make up for the fitness lost due to 2 months off the bike (due to being lazy, cos it looked damp outside).

    grum – we met a few bikers as we headed toward gorple, would have been 11.30ish at a guess. Was that you? We were a group of 6

    Ah, no not us then. We didn’t set off until after midday. Good thing we took lights!

    Surfing your bike down a river in the dark was pretty entertaining though. I think that’s the wettest ride I’ve ever been on. Some sections were just ridiculous.

    GT red this morning with zero energy after 3 weeks off the bike, boozing and eating.

    NY resolution: ride more elsewhere.

    nearly 4 hours on the roadie today, just couldn’t face off-road. Headwind for most of the ride was ‘challenging’

    My last (and 76th*) ride of the year was a wet (but that was to be expected and summed up 2012) blast around Llandegla with mates yesterday. It was the third time I’ve been to a trail center this year and loved every minute.

    *I was aiming for 100 but the weather and a month out of the country conspired against me

    My last outdoors ride was a 65 mile club run this morning. Lovely bright winters morning.

    Tomorrow will be gym and attempting to getting used to my new rollers.

    Just got back from my last ride of the year, 47 miles on the road bike taking in 4 counties, West Sussex, Surrey, Kent and East Sussex. Lovely it was too.

    A lap or 2 of ashton court and leigh woods tomorrow for me, maybe followed by a bit of pump track action. Had more than enough of cold, wet sloppy stuff this year!

    A wee pootle to the woods and back with the kids…

    On the flat and smooth tarmac track back into town, son the seadog falls off (no reason given..) right in front of me. I had no option but to slam on the brakes, rather than flatten him. Over the bars I go. Grazed right shin, bruised right forearm, end of bar smacks inside of left knee giving nasty lumpy graze. Both bikes get bent mech hangers.

    Son totally undamaged. At least he had the concern to ask if I was OK.

    So much for a ‘Get them out of the house for half an hour…’.
