Looks like I'm running the latest Strava app on iphone, and I can't see it. Then again, I don't really know where I'm meant to be looking? If it comes under the 'more' tab, then its not there for me. I'm running the first installment of iOS7, yet to install iOS 7.0.2.
I'll check with Strava about iOS - in the training videos info page I'm looking at now it says 'Android and iPhone apps' - I'm only able to view it on android, where it's on the main drop down right under challenges. Are you sure you've got the latest version of Strava? I had to update mine
- Despite criticism London's 'Think! Cyclist' campaign extends to 5 other cities1 year 9 weeks agoThe Highway Code advice on
The Highway Code advice on passing a cyclist is ambiguous at best. I'd like more than "half a car's width" on the posters too, but at least it doesn't say that you only have to leave as much room as you would leave a car, which is what the HC appears to say, and which could mean only the width of a white line.

I think the CTC is right on this and I have no idea why TFL didn't ask them about the advice before issuing it. It appears to be written without also referring to the highway code regarding passing space and ASLs. or the efficacy of helmets.
I have a feeling it wasn't written by an experienced cyclist or even an advanced or experienced motorist.
- Just In: Garmin Edge Touring1 year 9 weeks agoI have the 800 but don't
I have the 800 but don't really want it's "training" features (anyone able to delete the "virtual partner"?) so considered buying the Touring and selling the 800. But it doesn't seem much more "touring" related. It still doesn't accept standard batteries, and as far as I can tell (why is there so much disinformation from and about Garmins?) it still won't give turn-by-turn instructions on a course created in Garmin Connect. I see the comment to use BaseCamp, but I would prefer to spend the hours on the bike, not on the computer.

I would be interested to know what the ratio of people killed by guns in London is to the amount of cyclists killed by tipper trucks in London is.
I dont mean to trivalise this but if tipper trucks were a particular breed of dog or a type of drug and had killed so many people im sure there would be MPs clamouring to get them banned.
29 gun deaths in London in 2011 according to one story I found on a quick Google. 16 (maybe 17) cycling deaths, 9 of which involved a lorry.
I await the calls for kevlar vests to be made mandatory for all Londoners.
- Greg LeMond: Lance Armstrong should be in jail... and was top 30 rider at best1 year 9 weeks agoI am reading 'Breaking the
I am reading 'Breaking the Chain'. What strikes me is how natural the drug taking process was in the teams. They are their own test laboratory - testing both 'glow time' and response to each chemical - not every substance has a quantifiable benefit/gain on each person, some work better than others.
The search for an advantage, and the extent that they know the rules, and how to walk round them is astonishing. The current situation with the Jamaican Athletics Association is a topical case in point - no out of competition testing before an Olympic games.
Actually during Lemonds period they started to understand about the drug taking and were a bit more efficient at it, but I don't think Voet and his teams ever stopped. The drugs just became more effective.
I say all this, because I think it unlikely that the culture has changed much, either from before the 1990s, nor since. Some things have adjusted, but I would imagine that bike teams are pretty capable of walking around most of the measures.
One thing that does strike me is that there seems to be a code of respect, which meant that no one in his team doped 'excessively' - i.e. the doctors capped EPO use before the UCI did, and that they didn't try to win everything. I think that is Armstrong's mistake - while he missed the classics, he tried to dominate the big race and that wasn't fair. He is reaping his whirlwind.

-1 to chuck, because the science trumps anecdote argument is not always correct - it was used to keep us smoking for an extra couple of decades until we were reeeeaaaaaally sure about the harm of smoking. And this cycling study's evidence is actually just anecdote dressed up, and with a tiny tiny sample too, 20 cyclists. Great to see some studies on cycling but don't be dazzled by a post doc per se - it's just a guy who needs a project and enjoys cycling.

Ah, great news. This is my guess - http://goo.gl/maps/qWsQa - just to see how close I get.
The Dunmow to Ongar road would be great for some echelons - it's dead straight for miles and open.
