All my life I've known I'm a bit of a poser. Hardly worth a crap - save the ability to ride 20mph in 100 degree weather for 200 miles or more.
But looking over the "pond" seeing that there are some "boys" about to ride 25mph for 200k over three or four mountains and just call it a "days work" among so many more - well you know I'm just a knackered old fool.
But for the life of me - after riding here in the States with several dozen State Road Champions - i for the life of me can't understand why USA Cycling is such a wuss of an organization as to not foster more 200k competitions.
"Oh blimey me" - the route is over an 100k - It's too long - I must train with more "quality."
Boo- hah !
