Well the rain has eased and i have got a few rides in the last few days, i'm really liking the new ride.... cannondale caad9, it's a much lighter and faster bike, and i'm getting a bit more speed out of it and it climbs like a dream, pretty happy with it at the moment :D

Is it just me? or does Bike Journal not work on the signature ticker?

bugger. Hope it comes back clear for you.
I had one out of my chin last year. Always a good wake up call about sun safety.

Fingers crossed!

I hope all is clear. Just out of interest, whereabouts was it? I hardly ever check my legs, probably should.

:D

Just above the sock line on the back, right in the middle, I also never worried about the legs as I'm usually back by 8am. Years of beaching boating I guess.

Over the weekend my leg became infected,another trip back to the doc today & two stitches have let go & the wound has gaped :cry: now sporting many steri strips & a full bandage, there goes my lead, hope its all worth it in the long run.

No, not just you. Colin had trouble too. Try Strava.

The old signature which worked off bike journal stopped working. However, the new one seems very easy to work. My signature (below) is sourcing info from Bike Journal as I don't use Strava. You just have to follow the instructions and specify Bike Journal as the source of your stats rather than Strava.

Heal well Lewy. Might actually have a chance of beating you in an arm wrestle next week...... if I can use both arms?

For those having problems with Bike Journal, go to your BJ profile and tick "public profile".

I am obviously behind the game mugglechops, I barely even clean my bike parts, let alone get them sterilised & labelled with my cycle number. :D

Lewy,
heal quickly. Borrow a wind trainer/rollers to keep the legs in some sort of shape.

The hardware looks like you've gone all Ti on us, what ever happened to "Steel is real" ? :)

Beautiful morning for a ride hereabouts. A satisfying 80km around the lake and not a drop of rain so my luck's improving.
