#MyCyclingWeekend with Decathlon - Feeling Deflated

Your weekly chance to with some Decathlon prizes

Our winner this week wasn't left deflated by a mid-ride puncture.

It doesn't matter what type of bike you ride, or how fast you ride it, we all hate punctures but we all get one occasionally.

Standing at the side of the road fixing a flat is almost a rite of passage and while some can happen at terrible moments, this weekend seemed like an ok time for one to occur. It wasn't raining (in Bath) and it wasn't freezing.

Our winner this week had their ride interrupted by a puncture. As it happened to a ride buddy, we hope that you stood around offering helpful advice like "oooo, I wouldn't do it like that". Thankfully Lisa remembered to snap a picture for #MyCyclingWeekend and it has netted her this week's prize from Decathlon.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A fantastic day leaving Cannock in #Staffordshire, through #Brewood, picking up NCN 81 out of #Shifnal in #Shropshire all the way to #Shrewsbury via Telford, Wellington and Upton Magna. A little bit muddy in places and a blimmin headwind for the last 10 miles, but a great day had by all. Fantastic visibility, so much fun and then took the train back to Codsall to pick up a little bit of more of 81 before the ride back to Cannock 🚴🏻‍♀️💛🚴🏻‍♀️ #cycling #cyclinguk #nationalcyclenetwork #ncn81 #mycyclingweekend #womenscycling #outdoorsisfree #bike #cyclinglife #stravacycling #wintercycling #fatladattheback #fatlassattheback #cyclist #cyclingphotos #cyclinglife #sustrans

Well done Lisa, we'll be in touch to arrange your new thermal socks.

We'll have a new prize up for grabs next weekend but before then, check out some of the great entries from the weekend.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

SCROLL ACROSS FOR MORE. Cor! That was absolutely brutal!! Met Phil at his house, Mark Hulford at Phillis hill, then up to Clapton, a new shitty lane up past Emborough ponds, a headwind of a A39 descent to Wells, could barely get over 35mph as it was proper windy. Quick banana break at the bottom and onto Westbury sub-Mendip for a climb we had not done before next to Broad road. Called Stancombe lane, what a stinker! It gets up to 18% plus in places, with some sections that just keep on giving. Not quite Draycott steep, more like Ebbor Gorge/Deer leep, kind of steep. A proper energy sapper! Then Charterhouse , and some shitlaning to the top of the Wrangle, and down West Harptree onto the coffee stop at Woodford lodge for some Haute Cuisine posh breakfasts and a meet up with Richard Davis! A few people can’t do the 15th March - Matt Cox is off to America for three months at least and Peter Naylor is off to Venice so if you don’t mind pretending to be them for the day you can probably get a free entry! Post below if you are interested! See you all next week - it will be a Dr Fellatio/Backdoor Action special! Reckon you’ve got what it takes and the fitness to keep up? It’s hard AF! 7:30am, Meet Conygre hall, Timsbury every Sunday morning. Totally free of charge... but you have to be fit! #mycyclingweekend @decathlonuk_cycling _cycling #highlittleton #tunley #radstock #midsomernorton #eastharptree #westharptree #mendips #paulton #cycling #kask #wymtm #fromwhereiride #outsideisfree #roadcc #cannondale #boardmanbikes #orbea #lazerhelmets #timsbury #giantbikes #shimano #southwestisbest #cyclingheaven #lazerhelmets #rosebikes #orbea #Oakley #cyclingweekly #roadcc #fuckzwift

Son of a Marathon runner, Nephew of a National 24hr Champion, the racing genetics have completely passed him by. After joining the road.cc staff in 2016 as a reviewer, Liam quickly started writing feature articles and news pieces. After a little time living in Canada, where he spent most of his time eating poutine, Liam returned with the launch of DealClincher, taking over the Editor role at the start of 2018. At the weekend, Liam can be found racing on the road both in the UK and abroad, though he prefers the muddy fields of cyclocross. To date, his biggest race win is to the front of the cafe queue.
