my name is steve.
i ride bikes and skateboards.
can't do this week but keen for next.
just did the calculation for the 1st time.
48x19 is 190 rpm at 37mph!
48x19 is a good bet.
somewhere around 66 gear inches is golden.
enough to climb up pretty much anything and not too spinny until you hit 38mph downhill.
did the commute on my sweet fixie this morning. haven't ridden the thing in over a year. massive grin on my face the whole way in.
also keen for some sunday rolls.
back on the bike and going well.
seems like this is the comeback ride.
it's only been another 2 years.......
after doing the 2017 version. which was epic, i've been on a long road of recoveries with 2 broken patellas and 3 knee surgeries in the past year and a half.
i'm way way off match fitness but would love to do this.
it's in the diary.
my longest ride in the last 18 months is 25 mile so got a lot of work to put in but this is the kinda thing i need on the horizon.
best get on the bike.
doesn't look so hard. everyone looks too happy!
great work getting this done yesterday. it was grim out there!
have fun. stay warm!
i'm well and truly out. one of the pins holding my knee together has backed out and i'm unable to walk properly. that's really recovery on hold.....
i promise to make an appearance at something this year.
have fun on this, was looking forward to it.
