  • Aye that was a shocker, he was supposedly a lovely guy!

    I went out yesterday & again today for a random lunchtime spin - roads round the West End are as bad as you might expect at 1pm... ended up just taking random turns when things ahead started to back up, not really the most enjoyable but at least I got out for a bit!

    I remembered earlier the lovely algorithms at Garmin will make a route for you if you give it a start point, distance & tell it roughly which direction to head - so will give this a bash tomorrow, looks reasonable & seems to avoid the worst bits i've done the last couple of days, although that hill at Cleveden is a bastard on a bike with no gears!

  • Is that just on the route builder thing on Connect?

    Would be useful for running as I want to do one 5k run a week but I want it to actually be 5k rather than the 8 or 10 I end up doing if I just head out with no route in mind as I just end up buggered for days afterwards if I do that.

  • Yeah that's the one - I tend to stick to popularity routing if it's somewhere i'm not totally familiar with & it seems to work pretty well, I still always zoom in & check exactly where it's sending me just to be sure though!

    I used to like throwing in a couple of short runs per week - great for fitness & half an hour is enough, my knees have staged a revolt however so that's scrapped... mate of mine has been doing a bit & seen some good improvements in his cycling... he lost 2 stone into the bargain so he's now much lighter and fitter, he was never a slouch before but now it's hard to keep up if he's pushing on
