Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Thought I'd share my steed with you. Its a 2014 Giant TCR SLR ALUXX (M/L) which I understand is quite a rare frameset - especially in the UK. Its stiff, punchy and with my alternate Mavic Ksyrium SSC SL wheelset weighs 7.75kg

My SuperSix Evo in century trim

I was only able to do 3 centuries last summer - crashed in May, cleared to ride again in July... Worth it for stops like this!
