#1443

Have done 2 40k spins in the last 6 weeks and that’s it.


#1444

Couple of nice drags on that route I’d say


#1445

Scenes.


#1446

One massive steep climb up through Rathdrum and into Enniskerry, proper heart breakers. And then a constant uphill rolling hills for about 15k from Roundwood.


#1447

Rejoice !


#1448


29 degrees.


#1449

Is that feet or meters elevation?


#1450

Knutsford and Didsbury


#1451



#1452

I’d like to say metres.
But it’s feet.


#1453

It’s all flat til you hit the green bit, then all hills.


#1454

Sneaky cunts adding in an extra 5k. Lovely route. My legs are fahooked


#1455

If you were cycling drunk and were all over the road it would explain the extra few km.


#1456

Serious enough incident there at the Beckett Bridge this morning. Lorry coming up North Wall Quay turning left onto Guild St. Cyclist knocked down , seriously injured.


#1457

turning left?? Can you turn left there?

is this where there was a fatality a couple of years ago?


#1458

I think there’s some up/down confusion. You can turn left at Beckett if you’re going in the direction of the 3 Arena but not if you’re coming from there. The fatality a couple of years ago was back up towards St Laurence O’Toole’s church at the traffic lights where you can veer off towards the port tunnel.


#1459

thanks mate, its a route I stopped using

hope the cyclist and driver are ok


#1460

You know what, it had occurred to me that I haven’t seen your tussles of grey hair flickering in the docklands breeeze as you cycle across Beckett for a quite a while now.


#1461

grey? I think the correct term is surf blond


#1462

Swamp silt is the term.
