The “almost as fast as the fast training ride” ride

Well this one was an eye-opener. I’d not done this training run before and it felt very different from a club run. We met at Hatchmere at 10 and right from the start it felt like I was hanging on. With me were Jim Williams, aka Cancellara, patron of the peloton, who professed to feeling […]

Time Trial Pacing

Time Trial Pacing

How can I go faster? Having come back to the time trial scene at the start of last year, after a break of ‘n’, years, I faced two challenges: How do I time trial fast enough to go under the hour on a 25 course, and under 24 minutes on a 10 – which is what […]
