Project 400

How close to 400 watts can a skinny lad get for hill climb season? I am going to find out and document it (as best I can) as I go. Project 400 is what I am going to call it because my imagination is clearly incredible..... My favourite thing to do with a bike is ride...

2019 Season Update #1

2019 Season Update #1

2019 season does seem very young. However, the back end of June is already here. The nights are drawing in already and Summer has yet to show its lazy face. Maybe the season of Summer can't even bring itself to endure "Great" Britain this year? I certainly wouldn't...

Body Composition & VO2Max Testing

Body Composition & VO2Max Testing

Back in February, in what feels like an eternity ago already, I took part in a three week study. The testing was done with University of the Highlands & Islands and would include body composition and VO2Max testing. The primary focus of this testing was to gather...

My 2019 TT Setup

Everything has been very quiet on the blogging front in recent weeks. That is primarily down to starting my season off rather terribly. Set backs from race entry rejections, cancelled races, a DNF and then going like crap in the CTT and Scottish Cycling Championship...

Dunfermline Road Race

Dunfermline Road Race

Firstly is a massive thank you to Dunfermline Cycling Club who put on a perfect example of a road race. There is good reason as to why so many people want to take part in your race every year and I am grateful to have been given the chance this time around. Thank...

KISS Community League: Round 8

KISS Community League: Round 8

We are onto the final round of the 2019 KISS Community League. Although, there was talk of a "catch up" round, which was to satisfy the guys who were DQ'd by the game in Round 2 as they were too fast. We will wait and see what the deal will be regards that. Meanwhile,...

KISS Community League: Round 7

KISS Community League: Round 7

Round 7 of the KISS Community League will see us tackle the "London Loop" course. That means two climbs of Box Hill but unfortunately (for me, anyway) the finish line comes 4KM after the second completion of the climb. No hill top finish this week!...

Dooley’s 2up Time Trial

Dooley’s 2up Time Trial

The outdoor/real world season got underway for me at the weekend. I travelled down to Bishopton, near Glasgow, with the other Fifer. A 27KM 2up team time trial hosted by Dooley's was to be the first outing (for me). Other Fifer is a muck slinger. This means he doesn't...

KISS Community League: Round 6

KISS Community League: Round 6

The course for this weeks round of the KISS Community League would see us tackle the Watopia Volcano Climb After Party. https://www.strava.com/segments/19635842 It's a case of two flat laps with a few shallow/short draggy climbs to contend. However, on the third and...

KISS Community League: Round 5

KISS Community League: Round 5

I didn't take part in Round 4 of the KISS Community League as I was suffering from a stomach virus. It did mean I got to sit on my couch and watch Mike's live stream for once. You can check out a replay of that over on his YouTube channel....

Spring Racing – Planning

Spring Racing – Planning

It feels like barely any time has gone by since I posted about planning my Winter training. The reality is that a heap of time has gone by and racing kicks off in one weeks time here in Scotland. Time is something I will clearly never conquer. The age old saying that...

KISS Community League: Round 3

KISS Community League: Round 3

Check out my Round 2 post from the Richmond UCI World Champs course here - KISS Community League: Round 2. This week for Round 3 we took on 4x laps of the Innsbruckring course. It's a deviation from the full course used in the World Champs last year in Innsbruck,...
