    You are a brave and slightly insane man, chapeau. How long was the total session?

    I just did 1 hour 45 of trainerroad, doing 3 x 15 at FTP then a couple of sets of over-unders by combining two of the programme's workouts just now. Now I'm totally fried, don't think I can do longer, both due to leg pain and ass / brain numbness. Longest I'd ever spent on turbo prior to that was about 80 minutes.

    One of them was probably me!

    I went out over cudham, got to the top of toys hill and then started seeing ice. Still managed a very slow-mo icy spill nonetheless. Got pissed off and went home.

    I thought that the relatively mild Friday night and early morning 2-3 degrees would have prevented ice, but obviously not! Turbo today. CBA with risking it again.

    My 800 had a bit of a freak out earlier, the autopause (which I had set to pause when no movement detected) kept on turning on and off, even when moving. The cadence was reading fine and seemed accurate.

    I turned it on and off a few times and tried other autopause options (i.e., pause when at certain speed) and it didn't help. So I restored it to factory settings and it seemed a bit better, but still being weird.

    Any ideas what to do?

    Does anyone know of any LBS in the area that does bike box hire? I know Herne Hill Cycles and Bon Velo don't

    I may come along for the craic. Kind of miss Essex now I'm south and riding in Kent. Only when I can't face hills and fancy braving some angry drivers though.

    As a premium member with a power meter in the post, do i need to do anything on my account (i.e., input my FTP somewhere) to start getting power analysis of my rides?

    Yeh, I thought that may be the case. Probably not enough guns n'shit either. Probably quite a bit of fornication and killing though.
