Hi first post here. I have been in and out of the forum for donkeys, but today is the day I join:-)
reason for post is that I am looking for people to ride with around my area: burton-on-Trent / willington / Hatton etc anywhere from the local vicinity:-
looking for flexible people who can ride at different times: mainly weekdays or very early weekends mainly Sat.
Before anyone state join a CC I can't ad my job does not give me the ability to give any commitment to it, which is unfair to the club and its members. bit about me: I am very fit in a broad and general way, sub 20 min 5k / deadlift over double bodyweight / squat over 1.5 of bodyweight. I average around 18-22mph on the bike for 40ish miles on the perfect day. My background as you can probably tell is from strength comps & all inclusive type events. But around 2yrs ago I rediscovered my teenage love of cycling due to 3 shoulder operations. Got rid of the car and I commute to work 365 no matter what. Giving me an average weekly total of around 150/170 miles per week. i still strength train x1 session per week: squats deadlifts powercleans and bodyweight stuff/midline stabilisation. I have gone from a muscular 100kg down to 78kg while still keeping a bodyfat % below 10%.
Any genuine locals please get in touch age irrelevant, I am approaching 45! Main reason for hooking up is I have entered a couple of sportives so if anyone else is in need of the company then I look forward to meeting you.
