  • I'm up for evening/ weekend training rides

  • Don't stress too much about how 'big' your sprint may or may not be. Positioning and being fresh at the end > fatigued, out of position but with a big top end.

  • I'm also up for some race-pace ridez! Hit me up on the DM/PM/email

  • Still SE? Working proper hours or slacker hours right now?

  • Proper hours. Wednesday morning though???

  • šŸ‘ sounds good. Will see what state the normal bikes are in when I'm back in the country, might even dig out something sans-mudguards.

  • K-k-k-razy. I'll be happy to do the CSG loop at a clip if you're interested?

    You've been well ousted from the top spot.

  • the trauma of my ousting means I can never return there. Maybe something a bit more shoreham/eynsford way? Not fussed though. Might be a bit wobbly until I adapt to not having panniers/stoker.

  • Bump!

    Considering dabbling in a bit of racing this year but not sure I can commit to a club full-time so thought about racing for LFGSS - I've already got the skinsuits!

    Any tips on how to get started? Sign up for BC race licence first I guess? Hillingdon and Herne Hill Velodrome seem to be the closest circuits to me.

  • Cross season now, depends what events you like to race in.

  • Thanks guys.

    I probably wouldn't get involved until late Feb anyway. Too cold and too unfit right now!

  • Was reppin' LFGSS in my first crit yesterday at Hillingdon. It was interesting to say the least. Cat 3/4 with about 40 riders and a lot of choppers around, me included apparently!

    Things were going okay to start with until I got a rear puncture 30mins in. Despite the fact I'd already lost I got a spare wheel and rejoined the race for "fun".

    I must've been too hasty swapping the wheel out because my QR came loose halfway through the final lap and the rear wheel locked up. I gave up at that point and walked over to the finish line.

    This may have been a blessing in disguise because there was a huge crash in the final sprint which resulted in many broken bikes, some broken/fractured bones and one poor guy broke his back apparently. An ambulance was required! I'll take the DNF over a smashed bike and broken bones. I enjoyed the experience and may do the Cat4 only next Saturday but I really don't want to end up in the hospital. :/

  • Winter Crit series anyone?
    I [should] be there from 24th November.

  • Iā€™ll come and support/be a bike mechanic if needed. But Iā€™ll take photos of you guys looking fast.

  • LFGSS cross anyone?

  • Raced today.
    Good to be back having been off the bike for almost the entirety of last year with combination of shitty work life and then a broken rib.
    Been fun getting some semblance of fitness back.
    But I'm still really shit at racing.
