A few dates for your diary

This month we’ve got the Tour Down Under to look forward to – a bit of early season sunny racing for the pros – then there’s a bit of a lull until the Spring Classics (some of my favourite races) kick off in March. In preparation, I did a very Flandrian style 100km ride this morning through the lashing wind and rain! #keepcycling

    But where are the Olympics?


    1. Yes the TT and RR should be great events!


  2. I’ve also managed a couple of Flandrian rides this Christmas. I’m sure i’ll get the feeling back in my fingers by around February. I always look ahead to the Giro as the point when we might actually be getting a bit of sunshine here in the north of England, though right now 6th May seems a long way off!
