Happy to lend you my spares for a while if your bike isnt ready for the weekend. I'll be in the eastern subs both sat and sun. Drop me a PM if you need them

Failing that you could go for a run...or just rest for a few days :D

If you don't want to pay the shop to fix it, then bring it down to Tempe Velodrome after 7pm tonight and I'll true it for you. The guy in the shop would do a better job than me, but I'll get it going for you.

I have to say, i felt fantastic on the bike today, much to my surprise. Didn't feel i'd lost any aerobic fitness or strength. And the bike felt beautiful on top of that.

50 & 30 KM

best 50 yet despite hillier terrain, changing winds and minimal slip-straming. actually out-rode my training partner for the 1st time too

i hope tomorrow is just as good...i feel on top of the world right now :D
