Thought I should get this thread back onto front page. I finally went out on my Bianchi " supplied by Cirrus Cycles " today and also first time using cling on pedals. Having been worried by some of the comments on here about using them I found it was like a duck to water experience.Me and Stewart left Reading around 8.30 this morning and headed out to Virginia Water.Weather was not good very foggy and damp. By the time we got to the other side of Ascot the sun had broken through. We then went through Windsor Great Park along to Windsor and had a cup of chocolate down by the river.We had a race back home with Master Stewart winning as he took a short cut. Have to say the bike was superb in every aspect so thank you Alan Morgan.
Anyone else out today ?

The cleats definitely make the ride better but I just can't unclip unless I'm leaning against something. Don't know why and I've slackened off the tension on the pedals.

I had a fixing screw fall out of a cleat once. Stuck on the bike as I toppled gracefully over - thankfully the other foot came away just on time

Are shoe plates still used by those not converted to cleats yet?

Did about 50km yesterday. Loads of cyclists at Cinnamon Cafe in Windsor. Just got to average 19km a day between now and the end of December to hit my target of 8047km (5000 miles) for the year.

How do you feel after doing that length? Seems like you chose a popular cycle route if you saw that many cyclists about. Keep going mate, no reason you won't hit your target, just make sure you find the right time of day to cover the 19km each day

50km is not difficult once you've got used to it, providing there are no horrendous hills. 100km is more demanding - the club I belong to has a 100K challenge (suspended during lockdown) where you have to do at least one 100k ride per month.

In fairness, I've included km I've ridden on the smart trainer - it's possible to ride all sorts of famous routes by video with all the hills simulated. The only problem is you can't freewheel downhill!

One day I'll show you my medals for some proper hardman stuff.
February, 90 MILES on Saturday, and 100 MILES on Sunday around the Chiltern Hills. We was proper cyclists back then.

Fortunately Bob, for us young 'uns (I'm only just a Senior Citizen) they have now invented cars..... wonderful things that take all the hard work out of going places.
