    I'm a fan of Saucony Peregrines, in fact I'm just about to re-up for the summer trail racing.

    Am I missing something? Strava links to GC and pulls everything across doesn't it?

    Mine certainly does for both my Forerunner 405 and Edge 500.

    Was the course rideable this year?

    I did the first year at the new venue (and one at the old venue) and found it mostly impossible - lots of long fireroad descents into 90 degree corners straight into 15-20% uphills. Lots of walking for everyone, especially when it got wet.

    (Although there was a fantastic drop on the first descent that was catching people out left right and centre.)

    ^ I've heard mixed reviews. I have a 3 and a bit year old Forerunner 405 which (touch wood) has been about as flawless as electronic devices get.

    Raced a 5k tonight. Technically a 5k PB although I have run a 10 where both halves were quicker than tonight (hills etc).

    Came 6th also.

    Spent two lunchtimes reading that and really enjoyed it, thanks.

    I rode 50 miles for the first time in a while, out of Brizzle, over the big bridge to Chepstow, quick loop round then back.

    Need to plan something longer/multi day into Wales as even the small bit I rode was lovely.

    Judging by the track looks like our intrepid forumer has crossed the border.
