    I think doing an SR might be my goal for next year.

    Aren't farings illegal on TT bikes?

    Not allowed to do PBP until the boy is old enough to ride it with me. WCW is a consolation prize.

    I've signed up for WCW too.

    How are people getting too/from the event? Not sure the train will work for a 6am start but it's close enough to London that a hotel seems very extravagant.

    Going to be hard to get space on 600s next year. Book early!

    Nice day out today - very warm, with multiple navigation errors, but a good day out.

    I'm not sure it's possible to ride the sightseer without navigation errors.

    Mostly due to GPS having a hard time in the City, and some of the daft infrastructure requiring turns in odd places, but also because the roads keep moving around!

    I was thinking about a flexible whisker/antenna that's designed to put a scratch in anything passing inside a meter.

    Only barrier is having to remember to retract it while filtering. And the ethical, safety, legal issues. But it's nice to dream.

    Any one doing tour of the hills on Sunday?

    Lovely ride out.

    Best bit of the day was causing traffic chaos in Dorking with @J_a_m_es because the traffic light sensor loop couldn't detect bikes.

    Worst bit of the day was all the hills. I know it's called tour of the hills but I really should learn to take a look at a bloody map before deciding on a course of action. It ended up being about the same climbing as The Shark.

    It may well be that this difference can only manifest itself over very long distances, e.g. as in ultra-racing

    I've done a fair bit of dot watching and it seems rare to see women win or even be competitive with the fastest men.

    Although, it has happened (Lael being an example), so maybe there's just not enough women having a go to identify the outliers whereas the male pool is much larger so it's more likely to contain at least one man who performs at a level far above the rest of the riders.

    If you fancy a couple of extra climbs, I'll be passing through Esher about 0715 I reckon.

    Yeah I think I'd be up for that if you don't mind the company. If I'm to slow for you I can always take a shortcut :-D

    Will DM you a phone number.
