I'm thinking of organising a weekend group of riders into a casual club, getting together at weekends and evenings etc
I was trying to find a club in Leicester that operates on the actual east of Leicester ie Wigston, Oadby, Thurby, Stoughton etc.
I'm reaching out for some ideas as to why I'm having issues with my knees.
I'm 22yo and have only recently started road cycling 'seriously'. I try to ride ~30/40mi on Wednesdays and ~60/70 over the weekend, slowly building up on distances.
After about 10mi, my right knee starts feeling a little strange. The only way I can describe it is as if it's being filled with jelly or something of a similar density. I think it swells a tiny bit but nothing that you can really notice.
So an incident this weekend made me consider getting insurance but after having a look around I am baffled
Can anyone give me a good policy that is a fairly reasonable price and would be offering something like -
If one of them ugly smoke emitting boxes came into contact with my bike, resulting in it no longer operating I'd get some money (even if said person doesn't stop)
If my bike is stolen - not too worried about this home insurance covers this (from home, and perhaps if I'm out n about)
Odd request but would anyone in the South West like to do a poor student a massive favour, help with my uni work and lend me some rollers to borrow for no longer than a week? Or do you have an old road bike that you no longer want, condition doesn't matter as long as it kind of works.
If you'd like to help me please get in touch, let me know your email and we can work something out and arrange some sort of deposit/compensation for your troubles
Thanks in advance, would be doing me a massive favour if anyone could help me out!
I passed a local group of cyclists today and as I was passing them I was wondering what is the 'social rules' as far as passing/saying hi and any other etiquette/rules etc are concerned.
I passed a few on a climb said hi to a couple but didn't want to be that dickhead who says "Hi how are you" completely not out of breath whilst your slugging it out and dying a death. (It's happened to all of us admit it) All that you think is "what a knob" .
Looking for a track bike that will be suitable for road use (ie. brakes) whilst also being able to be used on a track.
Currently looking at a dolan pre-cursa. Other suggestions in this price bracket?
Road surface on my usual route is less than bike friendly with many, many potholes covering entire roads which gave me some heart pangs yesterday as I hit one at speed (no damage done) so my question is...Cornwall cycling, best roads to go on esp around falmouth area? What are your favorite routes to go on etc?
I'll start with the Lizard - the roads are brilliant out that way very few serious potholes and little traffic make for some enjoyable riding. Just a shame that to get there you have to go through bike hell. (Falmouth-Gweek)
So I have just returned from around a year off the bike due to serious injury and I find myself with a reasonable level of fitness, I want to get good again.
1) I need new cleats, shoes, the works, what would make a good pair for around £100? Best shoes? Best pedals?
2) Any advice on buying rollers? Do people prefer turbos? Are there good makes to look out for?
Okay, so my girlfriend is worried about me being hit by a car and wants me to get some sort of high vis top whilst cycling. She suggested a high vis sash , I refused . I use a front/rear light combo everytime I'm out. I was thinking of getting a fluro top (do these only really work in dull light or will they be good in summer too?) but wondering if I'd be better off with a bright coloured top (red or something) Suggestions/advice welcome and any ideas for tops to get.
