happenings for the week

On the training front I took Tuesday off and work kept me off the bike on Wednesday. I had planned to cycle into work today but snow and a nasty frost put a stop to that. This extended winter is a pain in the butt from a training point of view. Tonight I did 45 mins on the turbo trainer and kept the average heart rate (excluding warm up and warm down) at 158 bpm, which is not too bad. Tomorrow I'm going to try to cycle into work if the roads are ok - if not, more of the same on the TT.

Saturday I'm doing a bit of trail building. But I'll bring the bike along for a quick blast somewhere afterwards. I'm still in two minds about the race on Sunday - the weather is the issue. So I'll play it by ear. I do have every intention of going...well, kinda.

Apart from that, I have all the parts for the Cube back. Picked up the rear wheel - with new freehub today - happy days. And I dropped in the XTC and Cube forks to OC Tuning for a service. James did a super job on the forks, and picked them up and dropped them off too. Awesome - cannot reccomend the guy enough. They can be contacted by emailing or call James 085-7280614. So with all the bits back, the plan will be to get them back on the bike tomorrow evening for a Blast on Saturday.
