    I think the place I was looking at offers 'clinical' pilataes so I would imagine that's the more physio version? Thanks, good to know.

    I've been recently getting some back pack at work and now and again on the bike. Nothing too serious but it's there. I've been thinking of having a go at pilates for some time now as I understand it can help with flexibility and posture. Does anyone here do it and has it helped you?

    Any recommendations for some gumwalls? Currently riding on Grand Prix 4000s II's and ideally something similar?

    I can relate to this big time. I'm not a racer but I found myself in a similar position at around this time of the year two years ago. I was training for LEJOG and I remember being on a ride in Essex (near Chelmsford I think) in some of the worst rain and wind ever. I remember thinking, what the fuck am I doing? This is so fucking shit and at right at that moment a driver beeped me for ages as the miserable cunt had to wait the best part of half a second before he could overtake which really rounded off the day perfectly. I think what really helped me get back on track with it all was having new routes and places to ride. It didn't even need to be somewhere that far but getting the train to St Albans and doing a route round there was so much more fun than doing that same route out from Lee Bridge Road and coming back through Chigwell etc...I think London is pretty good for that as you can to most home counties pretty quickly and you never have to wait too long to get a train back.

    Spotify helped a lot as well. Just having new music made rides a lot more interesting and I found the miles ticked by quicker.

    Don't know if this helps at all but you never know...

    Maybe Matty Darienzo at Into You? I've seen him do quite a few coffins before which look good. Can't comment on how booked up he is but I would presume it'd be a lot less than Duncan X.
