What will be the average speed be for D Grade? I'm having a discussion at work here and a coiuple of the guys are saying i should be in C Grade.. I beg to differ and just wondered what the average speed would be in D as i feel I'm not up to C Garde in my current form.


I'll be hopefully sitting with the D lot as well. Tony, I'll be in the HUB top riding the grey Ridley. If you need someone to give you a hand crushing CHCHBob give me a tap on the shoulder.... :satan:


Geeze guys if you are going to gang up on me, I will have to bust out the big guns and have a pie and a beer for breakfast .... :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Just don't do what I have done, go from being an A grader to a C grader :p But in fairness when I was young nothing else existed but cycle racing.

OK if we're doing a D grade 'show and tell' then I will look something like this, but without the spare bike on my back...

Mint, anyone else coming to Eyreton to race for the first time? Have a go, it's a blast! It may not be the Tour but it's still you, a bunch of competitors and the finish line!

I really want to come out and race but i've only done 4 rides this month, well thats 4 more than June but still I hate racing unfit. Only way to get fit I reckon though and I guess this week will be easier than next week at Sefton to start on!
I'd be D maybe E but I doubt they would let me in E :(

Could be :paranoid:

Today was 20min when I couldn't be arsed riding in the rain.

But in terms of quality training I would say 20-30 mins of going hard time (80-100% of max aerobic power) which is the optimal zone for aerobic development and another 20-30min of sweet spot (80-100 of threshold power) which is optimal zone for building aerobic capacity. Should have been more but Wednesday's ride cooked me a little and resting HR was up to 59. This morning it was back at 49bpm.

Lauren, i think there will be quite a few of us not race fit. I'm certainly not firing on all cylinders at the moment, Bob will vouch for me on that score.. Like you say the races will just get harder as everyone gets the fitness back.

I'm just glad there are a few of us that are newbies so I'm not destroyed on my own.

Lets hope the weather is like it is today..

Hey MFW I'll be riding a Scot Cr1 Pro with like Bob says nice Fulcrum 1 Racing Wheels. I look forward to seeing you riding round with that on your back.
