Pratiwi: "Are you going cycling today?" Me: [checks weather] "F*ck that!" cry Hmmmmm... any nice pubs around here? wink

17:01

Pratiwi: "Want any sunscreen?" Me: "Where am I not covered?!" Arctic gales on today's ride, but still fun #Painful wink

16:31

Back from great ride round 50ish km of yesterday's Amstel Gold course. Lovely bergs. Sorry, no pics but imagine green hills & sunny skies smile

15:46

Today's ride in Belgium. Bit of pavé, bit of gravel. Cold (despite the sun) & bloody windy. Who'd have thought?! wink

13:45

Great to be back on the bike in the sunny Mosel smile But 6 wks of travel, 1 of gastro & 1 of flu has left zero form sad

22:00

Can't think why we chose this restaurant. At least while Pratiwi is engrossed in menu there's some entertainment! wink

14:55

Tell us something we don't know wink #ReadItAndWeepCouchPotatoes

Just back from cycling. GPS says it was 35° out. Phew! Pratiwi thought she'd have some fun while I stretch: Bliss!

11:26

Post ride relaxation in the shade. Bit quiet today, where is everyone? wink #XmasDayBikeRideDone #NowForLunch grin tongue

18:09

Feeling good on the 'train' after work wink How good is it to arrive home with mashed legs?! grin http://www.strava.com/activities...

09:50

Spotted in Barcelona: family of 5 travelling around by bike. So what was your excuse for not cycling touring again?

17:23

Was a bit of Strade Bianchi on the route today, so Cervelo needs a shower. Bike wash with a view outside our cottage!

14:34

Another nice trundle today. Snap of the view towards Kangaroo Valley from part way down Berry Mtn descent. Beautiful!

17:30

1500m climbed in only 60km today. Beautiful views on ride & for refreshments after. More of the same tomorrow please!

13:22

For poms who cry in 20° heat: my jersey after today's ride - & it's in this state a lot! GPS says 36° max. Nice! wink

07:29

Is this the only place UK looks 'hot'? wink Awesome geek stuff! @Strava #heatmap http://app.strava.com/saturday-h...

19:42

Yes, an actual road sign at the bottom of today's 2nd climb. Who will take the wrong turn? wink #TdF #SBSTdF #OGERocks

10:34

Picking out a jersey for today's ride: Hardly a tough choice! wink Can't wait until tonight's stage! #MontVentoux #TdF

15:40

Wow... Is it summer already? wink Snacking on banana bread after another great spin in the fantastic winter sunshine smile

16:44

Braving Autumn weather in Sydney wink Don't normally share pics from my 'ride like a tourist' route so please enjoy smile

20:31

#RVV here! If you can't be there, be on the couch #Leffe in hand, http://live.cyclingnews.com/ on overlay. Cheers! grin

15:20

What a joy to be back cycling in the Pyrenees. Glorious mid-winter's day. Just look at that, what's not to love?! smile

14:37

Another sunny day on the bike, but with wind & cold you cannot see. Brrrrr... Still, great views of & from Bonnieux.

16:23

Stunning day for a ride through Alpilles regional park. Felt more like a summer's evening than middle of winter! smile

12:15

View from today's ride at Col du Canadel. Bike would be in foreground, but so windy was blown over the edge! Doh! sad

14:26

View on today's ride, just below Col de Vignon. Could just (so no shot) see some snow capped mounts on other side smile

10:35

From today's ride: Lac d'Esparron, village of the same name & the crystal clear Verdon river by Gréoux-les-Bains.

14:07

Hitting some great hills above Cannes in sunshine & relaxing in the hotel garden. Hard to believe it's almost winter!

11:20

Love my @cervelo RS dearly, but maybe time to trade it in for something with more... um... bedrooms? #FairExchange wink

10:30

Killing time while car is serviced in Nice: cycle to Monte Carlo & back... via some nice hills with nice views smile

14:09

Post-ride today. I guess you'd have to be a @simongerrans or @Orica_GreenEDGE fan to get this! wink

14:05

Today's ride: tootle the Sanremo bike path with Pratiwi. Then smash fest to Poggio. Then... well - when in Italy grin

14:41

Views from today's ride in the hills above Genoa. Very pleasant... if you can put up with getting in & out of city!

14:01

Best climb ever today: 205m vertical in 560m distance. Over 36% average! Or... bad GPS data. Which do you think? wink

13:21

Today's ride to Passo della Consuma & Vallombrosa. Stunning autumn colours descending through forest near the latter.

11:10

Today's ride: more cycling past olive groves in the Tuscan hills. These are near Doccia, NE of Florence. Very nice smile

12:44

After 2 weeks of playing in these hills above Florence, happened to stop at road works when the sun was out. Nice smile

17:53

New cassette, rings, chain, cables, brake pads & bar tape. Feels & looks great! smile And do you like the work stand? wink

18:30

Chain stretch? What chain stretch?! wink A PC-1091R with 5310km on goes in the bin (with the rings & cluster). Ouch! sad

14:30

This morning's ride was round a misty Lake Como. Menaggio to Bellagio. Shots on the ferry back home. Nice way to end.

11:55

Already at 1586m altitude but there's 36 hairpins left to do. Or you've done 72 if coming back down like I was! wink

11:35

Few of the 36 official hairpins coming from Bormio. There are more below but they must have got bored with numbering!

11:15

The Umbrail Pass. Well, it would be rude not to visit the Swiss border & another pass as was only a 200m detour! grin

11:10

Am glad it snowed last couple of days, because we were here 3 days ago & this place doesn't look good in the nude! wink

11:00

Second (just) highest paved pass in the Alps! See the name under all those stickers? View down the other side is OK!

10:50

Ever used a snow drift as a bike rack? wink Finally got some blue skies but can assure you this ride was rather chilly!

15:11

OMG... just been handed this map! grin But only booked 4 nights here... & storms are forecast sad Hoping for some luck!

14:40

Offenpass & Fluelapass. Love it but can't stay in Switzerland too long: so expensive! Lucky the memories are free! grin

15:57

Another ride into Lindau today, this time with Pratiwi. Very nice cycling through the orchards and vineyards.

13:43

Might have done a bit of pavé while sightseeing in Lindau this morning. Nice view from nearby Eichenberg too smile
