Reply to: Whats more accurate, a Garmin or iphone?
The only way to get a semi-accurate calorie burn is with a power meter. But even then, that only tracks how much power you put into the pedals – 30 minutes on a pump track apparently only used 25 calories last time I went!Posted 2 weeks ago | Go to post
Reply to: A year / 6 months of no Alcohol….
I stopped drinking in December last year. It helped my wife doesn’t and I have friends who don’t either.
The main thing is to avoid people who will try and pressure you into drinking – the words “I don’t drink” are surprisingly helpful. Bear in mind that’s not “I’ve stopped drinking” or “I’ve quit drinking”. Makes it a lot easier!Posted 1 month ago | Go to post
Still going strong – missed a total of 10 days due to Illness but dogwalking has helped when I haven’t wanted to do a run/ride/climb.Posted 1 month ago | Go to post
Lost about 10 days total due to illness, but enjoying it much more than I thought I would! Done loads of climbing and running, which has really improved the mood 🙂Posted 3 months ago | Go to post
Reply to: Improving basic fitness quickly
I’d agree with running. It’s hard at first, but it gets easier. Great for cardio and weight loss but the fitness doesn’t transfer directly to the bike.
There’s a Parkrun at Dishley at 9 every Saturday morning and plenty walk it! The challenge is to go just a little faster every week.
Mix it up with a regular road night ride, you’d probably enjoy it more than you’d think!Posted 3 months ago | Go to post
I like the tradition behind the Ambrosio, but it looks like they’re for tubs only?
Apologies, I was being facetious as you asked for P-R wheels and they used to be the go-to rims. They are great, but yes, tubular only. Saying that I do use mine as my winter wheels with Vittoria Pave tubulars on, very good ride quality.Posted 4 months ago | Go to post

Reply to: Fitbit/Strava GPS inaccuracies
Not surprising, the iPhone GPS is notoriously inaccurate. You’d be better off using something like a Garmin, Wahoo or Polar to get accurate mapping. It’s all to do with how often the GPS tracks you – have you got 1 second tracking or smart?Posted 5 months ago | Go to post

I got tendonosis in my left shoulder after idiots caused me to crash at the Sherwood National last year. Took a year to heal properly.Posted 8 months ago | Go to post
