    I gave you a red for these pics last night. No idea why!

    Just off out for a pint in town now! Let me know when free of the lurgy stress and we'll try another time.

    The rugged terrain of the canal tow path was no issue for my 28mm Schalbe tyres,however the heat for me was.

    Was attempting to visit the historic market town of Glossop today through the ups and downs of the Dales.

    Even the banana, strawberries, 6 eggs whites milkshake couldn't propel me there.

    I have noticed my improvement and stamina has increased due to losing 8kg in 6 months. At my age there's no need for all that extra muscle and weight up top. It's better to be leaner..

    A few pics from today's sauna on a saddle..

    No light at the end of the tow path/tunnel..

    I was in Glossop last week as well. A beautiful place and a cracking roast at the end of it too.

    Nice pics Hal, would have liked to cycle over that way but the hills were too much.
    I've had a good cycling season this year, probably better than the preceding 4 years of this thread put together.
    Over 2000 miles in 6 months of lockdown.
    Lost about 8 kilos as well which can't hurt at my age.
    Will have to do some other type of exercise now untill the Spring as i'm a fairweather cyclist.

    Yeah, fuck cycling up and down hills in the wind and rain when its -5

    A run and a few weights will do you.

    Completed a hour 25 mile time trial today with some unforgiving hills.

    To quote the words of Somtamslap, i was too busy smashing myself into oblivion to take any pics.

    Left it late and it was getting dark, which reminds me to buy some bike lights.

    Legs were like jelly and eye pupils twice the size on completion.

    Obviously overdone it yesterday, one of my testicles has swollen up like a plum.
    Is this normal?
    Has anyone else experienced a swollen undercarriage from cycling?
