    I was given these Italian Marresi's recently and they fit perfectly. Unsure of age but I hope they pass as vintage.

    To buck the trend I went for a half my age breakfast ride yesterday - 34 miles. Great ride and plenty of time to enjoy the rest of the day, renewing two shed roofs so my bikes stay dry this winter!

    Casual riders doing nearly 12,000 miles a year? That's professional level compared to me. :rolleyes:

    I have always thought that cadence on it's own doesn't tell you much other than how fast your legs are turning. Shouldn't the discussion also include the gear you are in. You could be pedalling like...

    Top cyclists are not normal humans. Their skill and endurance levels are abnormal.

    Great work Kingfishr. I had to have a lie down to recover after just reading about the rides.

    P.S. I love the photographs in your signature album. Are you a professional photographer?

    You clearly should wear them over your tights like Superman (or Wonderwoman), whichever floats your boat.

    I'm 67 and like to tell myself that I'm still fit & healthy, but the truth is I'm less fit & healthy than I was 10 years ago, even less than 20 years ago and don't even go 30 years ago.

    Tempted to try a road bike

    I've been thinking of building up a road bike to see if I can get used again to riding drops, and get beyond my neck pain problems.

    Is that a general statement about the time of day the race is run, or just related to live viewing in the US?
