I'm rather relieved that I wasn't the only one to have to try and guesstimate time spent in the saddle...even though I actually do log my commute times but all the other runs are just for the fun off it/getting about etc.
As to my weight, I know it's important for the study but strewth I haven't deliberately weighed myself since I was a teenager for a weigh in a for a Judo competition/grading....and that was a long time ago!

Surely drivers have a duty to other road users not to drive into them?

Coroners, doctors and other "respected" professionals should concentrate on the jobs that they get paid to do and stop pretending to be "experts" on road safety.

Completely agree, I was bored out of my wits with this film after halfway. It captured none of the tension or the excitement and I don't know why you would use so much slow motion footage for a documentary about a race.

Concerned about putting Lagutin in my team, he is greyed out on the game but on the startlist, as i need to do my changes in the next hour
- Study into cycling and disease needs YOU!1 year 17 weeks agoI agree that variability in
I agree that variability in mileage & hours seems too much to give a 'correct' answer, but it's a population survey so I suspect the answers will be binned into quite broad categories; don't sweat the details. Take the number of miles/km you did last year and divide by 12 - that'll be more than accurate enough. Ditto with hours per week - your miles per month divided by your averageish speed is going to be a reasonable answer.
The equipment used Q was dodgy too. I mostly use a helmet, but not always. I do have some hi-vis stuff, but sometimes wear black...

Italy being my favourite country and Rome the ultimate place i should really be doing better in these races. Lets hope i can redeem myself in this one and wear the spqr badge with pride

You say this bike makes a "mockery" of the UCI minimum-weight rule, but then you also say "Okay so the parts they used are eye-wateringly expensive, but light bikes come with heavy price tags, as we all know". Which makes it clear why this bike does *not* make a mockery of that rule at all - indeed, it proves why the rule *exists*.
I understood the weight limit rule existed so that bike companies don’t start making risks on safety in the name of lightness (also to create a level playing field). We don’t want the frame snapping on Cavendish now! It’s got nothing to do with how expensive the components/frame/wheels/etc are.
As people want to buy the same bike as Wiggins and co, making a bike lighter than his will not sell as well so are generally not made. Most people would not understand why the ‘top of the range’ bike (lighter than the UCI minimum) is not being ridden in the TdF/ Giro/ Olympics etc. If the UCI were to reduce the limit to 5.5kg, watch how every bicycle in the pro peloton would now weigh this, regardless of cost.

Gutted Moser is gonna cost me, that now puts you massively ahead of me Alan, and you should top this comp now.
Just 2,3,4,6,8,18 for me If I stay in the top 50 now id have been lucky
2,4,8,13,16 for my purist team so it could loose big ground too as im targeting the overall for that

- Study into cycling and disease needs YOU!1 year 17 weeks agoIt's a tricky subject to
It's a tricky subject to capture; I spent years riding 250-300 miles a week to prepare for racing, but even then I would have weeks when I would do about 80 miles all in.
Now I do a similar amount of time, but over a much reduced distance, and if I work nights, I do no miles a week, yet on days aim for about 100-120.
It would be more interesting and informative to do a timeline based survey, detailing the way my/your activity changes through the years, and picking out the high points in terms of mileage/hours and the changes that naturally occur with age.
A pair of timelines, detailing cycling and health simultaneously would be best...
- Meet the Maker: Ricky Feather video1 year 17 weeks agoI was rebuilding a nice
I was rebuilding a nice 1990's Italian lugged 753 frame a couple of years ago with a straight chromed 1inch fork and modern group set - Ricky made me a beautiful custom 1inch ahead stem for the fork and made EXACTLY what I wanted (and then more). He is brilliant at understanding what you want and carrying it off with an artistry and degree of craftsmanship which will leave you seriously impressed.
Oh, and he's a complete gent too; thoroughly deserves all the success that seems to be increasingly coming his way.
