    Some sweeping generalisations here but.... most serial bike haters are bogans. Mist bogans have a weird love affair with sporting heroes. most of these hero’s are v8 drivers, footy players (afl/ nrl), motor bike riders etc. some legends of these sports are pretty decent and serious cyclists. Most v8 drivers do it for fitness,super bike rider Troy herfoss is almost pro level cyclist, Michael Ennis from the sharks just did IM70.3 and is aiming for Ironman. why isn’t there an ad campaign showing the bogans that their heroes are “Lycra clad poodters and that the guy you are abusing today is the same guy you cheer for on the weekend.

    Id like to see a breakdown of where the %s of that goes. Permits, traffic control, tucker, fluffy finish lines, suppprt infrastructure, paid employees etc. Might make it easier to take if legit. Or not......

    My week is usually structured around a 'recovery' day for the legs Monday with swim and maybe a very short, easy spin + gym. Solid Tues-Thurs. Friday often a bit less volume and then solid weekend. This works well for me as have been doing work experience in the office on Mondays

    Interesting that you confirm these are fake accounts. People need to be aware that you can never trust what you see on insta - it's the new and cost-free way to advertise. It's virtually impossible to gain the number of 'followers' that these women have without buying followers. What surprises me is the number of legit Pro athletes and reputable businesses (such as Cyclingtips) that follow and get sucked in by these accounts. I caught out an acquaintance of mine trying to set up a cycling date with PurelyP. He works for the Swiss cycling fed. The Primeval urges run deep

    I think it is your age on Dec 31 in the year that the season starts. Not sure if that makes sense?? Yes, as you say, you cant change age groups during the season.

    Purely makes Corky look like the average girl next door - and they are definitely fake - I don't think she's pitching to the grumpy old negative bunch on Trannies - I really wonder how much she is selling

    Just come back from a ride. A guy in front got cleaned up by a car doing a u turn in front of him. At least he stopped. I rode with the guy rest of beach rd to make sure he got home ok. We got drivers details and he said stuff it. His bike all scratched up so he can get it fixed. Not different to a car getting reoairs on insurance. The guy had bark off thats all.

    Very hit and miss. I just had a quick look in Garmin Connect and a lot of my long, easy runs have similar av HRs, but some of the shorter stuff it's all over the place. Two 5km runs from duathlons below (one was 4.6km) 4 weeks apart. Readings from first race seem spot on, 2nd race, no way was my max HR 160. I have read that there are number of things that can affect the readings, loose watch, hair, sweat etc. Even if the average HR readings were spot on the instant HR is rarely accurate, constantly spiking, jumping from 140s to 170s then back down to 140s and when you have an unreliable and inconsistent tool you eventually stop trusting it. I was going to get a strap HRM, but I kinda know my different HR zones, so probably won't bother. If there was a Fenix 5 without optical HRM, knowing what I know now, I would opt for that. For a lot of technology if it's not 99% reliable it's not worth using.

    I kinda don't see any of this being any different than the people my son is obsessed with on YouTube who play Minecraft etc and scream and rant like idiots and make millions...... My son now looks at this as a genuine occupation and it's all he wants to do when he grows up, of not sooner! Honestly, I can't stand them and have no interest in them, but at the same time I say good luck to them if they can get something out of it! They're smarter than me, making something out of nothing.

    I planned an 8km swim & a couple others were turning up. I then slept through my alarm for the first time since last Summer. Maybe my body was telling me I needed the sleep. I'll go with that line anyway.

    Really? I see all those things you do, but i don't feel sorry for her. I don't feel anything for her. Maybe I'm a bad person.
