    Hmmm, I want to "buy" formal club membership but can't get past "there are no shipping methods available for your cart or destination" on shopify
    :/

    Aha, that must be why I could enter. How do they get away with organising events outside of CTT?

    Anywho, I am keen to enter more TTs so I guess I'll have to wait for smaller events to get a few times to my name. Firstly need to join a club.

    Apart from triathlons, I've only ever entered a 10mile TT in Richmond park about a year ago. Can't remember what club organised it (or how I managed to enter it) but I completed it in 29:08

    Oh OK, thanks for the info. Is the LFGSS club CTT affiliated?

    I'd like to enter some TT events, is cyclingtimetrials.org.uk/ the best place to look? Is anyone allowed to enter the events on the website? I find it a little confusing/daunting.

    I am a BC (Gold) member but not affiliated with any club. I noticed someone mentioned the Team VeloVelocity E2/25 event on the 5th September, I'm going to try entering that on the website.

    This evening, while cycling south on City Road riding primary at about 25mph, I go to change lanes into the bus lane and very nearly come off my bike... going over the bus lane road marking. A taxi was right up my arse too and I would've been straight under it, but I somehow managed to regain traction and balance. Lifted the heartrate somewhat I tells ya.

    Was after a bit of rain, over a recently painted line marking (in my view too thick), hitting it at a low angle and on fully pumped up gator hardshells.

    Reminded me of how easily accidents can happen, it's such a common manoeuvre you wouldn't think twice about it.

    It does seem high, especially for cycling. I would expect that for the run leg. What threshold HR would you usually expect?

    I find my race day HR always a bit higher than when training hard. Plus it was a fairly hot cycle yesterday. Too many factors to be sure

    My cycle average HR yesterday was 153! Maxed at 174.

    Cool, thanks. Interestingly, for the whole 72min my average was higher than my 60min... I guess that makes sense, going harder at the beginning and end must've bumped the total average up. Think I'll stick with 240w for now and see how that feels training.

    How does everyone else here estimate their ftp?

    Oh yeah, forgot to add, the p2m type s is great, so easy to install and use. I'm a fan of GXP too.
