Took the new GoPro to the Giants matchs. A first for myself. Sunday saw a bit of training at Stormont, then the real session, beat the street with the kids. Followed by treats at "al gelato", Ormeau Rd. https://youtu.be/LBCM5HidcOs
2015 Larne cyclocross. Probaly on paper one of the dullest area's to run a cyclocross race. But Madigan always make a great course some tight features with the banks. https://youtu.be/4heQoOrT4bI
Start of this week was all based around building a Trek madone 9.9. A few hours spent working on this beauty. Unfortunetly not my bike. Also had some runners flag my bike ride on stava as I am using a forerunner. Hill reps on Tuesday where I was not at the meeting. https://youtu.be/cZpPR23xW2E
In 2005 Kinning Cycles & I ventured to Belguim. The Homeland of cycling, never mind cyclocross. I was the only rider to race as another club member pulled out at the last moment.

Not much pedalling done this week. Bit of a head cold. Power cranks fitted. Not power meters. Some cyclocross coaches appearing out of the wood work, some that haven't even ridden a cross bike never mind raced a cross bike. 3 hour spin on Sunday around coastal path and then up through Leadminds.

To see a man that could ride 100 miles with no issues to be unable to even shave. Though through all … Continue reading Chaos few weeks.

Nice training spin this morning with club-mate Luke. We went to Belmont road, back of Stormont for some hill repeats/sprints. So this is not too steep that you can't ride big ring. It's about 4 min long and on strava 3.06 fastest time. So our reps were 15 sec sprinting - 15 recovery 15 sec … Continue reading Hill reps.
