Well that's me and my mates got our race numbers for Etape Loch Ness

Old Gits And Bad Knees seemed an appropriately descriptive team name.

Ride Reports  - 
 
Since arthritis was confirmed last year I have been fighting it's effects, mostly on my knees but also hands, shoulders and hip.
As a result I have improved my all aspects of my cycling.Yesterday I rode further than I have ever ridden. I had been to Lairg before (1997) but took the short route home. 
Yesterday's route led me Past Tain, through Dornoch, into Lairg then West a wee bit before turning for the hill climb up onto the Struie.
Spectacular scenery pretty much all the way !

That's the bottom bracket changed on the hardtail. The grating noise is no more :)
Maybe I can shave a minute off the next 20 minute climb ?

What I've achieved fighting against my arthritis could be summed up with this one photo, but because I like to analyse things I've written it all out too :)

When I saw how long it was I didn't think I would manage to watch it all. I did !
Today I hit another milestone the first time I have seen 66.8 Kg on the scales since 1998.

I'm sure you all know that in order to maintain your ability to run or cycle over 90 minutes you must intake carbohydrates. Certain companies who supply carbohydrate powders and gels would like you to take up to 90g per hour...

For those who wanted feedback on the Stages Power Meter:
This is the updated timeline of my problem Stages Power Meter. I am happy to report that a replacement seems to be working fine. The customer service was excellent.

This then is the only part of my training plan that I missed from my blog. What I have been eating.
I got back into cycling at the end of last year. Read the full story about my arthritis HERE and the motivational tools and training aids HERE There is still a missing parameter in the fitness and health equation, my diet. Th...

Possibly the worst steak and ale pie in the world, even the waitress thought it was stew. Horrible chicken burger, very poor Texan BBQ pork. I don't know why google is giving my review 3 stars without me choosing the stars, I would give it 1 star because of the food.

What a great day out we had. There are other boats and they use radio contact to help pinpoint the whales. Free food not great though, so if you don't want a ham sandwich or chicken nuggets for the kids then bring your own.

Can't fault it, staff very efficient. Rides are great fun. The Dragon is the scariest, even though I did the big one, The Tower Of Power. Although it says no picnics, they allowed us to take in our Hotel Packed Lunch. You cannot take in alcohol.

No real complaints. Staff very attentive. Food is OK, although better can be found in local restaurants. Coffee and tea machines covered up at dinner times. Rooms have a fridge but it's locked and costs 4€ a day. Only one extra power point for charging things and it's in bathroom.
