Good to see Lilian Calmejane put his energy bar wrapper into his jersey pocket today. Many other riders just let theirs drop to the road. I always bring my  oat bar wrappers and empty energy gels back home for disposal.
Strange behaviour for a Frenchman though, being as his countrymen will piss in the street at the drop of a hat...

Acceptable (but Great White Buffalo would've been perfect)  ;)

Remember when we were coming up to the millennium, and there was all that panic that it was going to feck up all the clocks and computers, and we were going to be right in the shit? I can see a comparison here with Brexit, and things will turn out just fine in the end.
That's right, it may well turn out to be Millenium Bug II.
The suspense is killing me! (Oops, sorry)

I've been told not to cycle now till next Sunday.
You're better off tapering the training, rather than giving it a total rest for the week. Carb load too, plenty of porridge for the three days before.

Glad I wasn't in the way of the other 68% then mate 😉.

The rest were mostly near-misses.  :P There’s no challenge in shooting humans mate. ;)

Get yourself a Bluetooth speaker which you can connect to your phone. You can then play Spotify, Deezer, you tube and internet radio to your heart's content

Difference being companies planned for the event and spent hundreds of millions of pounds rewriting programmes in readiness. Yes there were still fears that there would be overlooked stuff that would cause systems to fail but this didn't happen.


In comparison something like 8 months before the Brexit bug is due to hit, the government still has no coherent plan.


Plenty of companies,however,  are planning though. We'll see how many are planning to move operations abroad or to source supplies from countries remaining in the EU.

Well done Dom. Make sure you take plenty of energy gels with you and have them every 1/2 hour or so, some graze bars and fluid will get you round.
Also just tuck in behind someone else and break the hills down into smaller targets, aim for the drain cover or thistle in the hedgerow, I find it helps.


Thsnks Nick! Great advice. I'll let you know how I get on.


I've been told not to cycle now till next Sunday. Certainly nothing major anyway. So I'll be conserving energy. Hopefully that will help too.
