January over

Well January is now over, Training wise it went fine, plenty of long slow miles,,, The last couple of weeks the weather was a pain in the arse, My last 4 rides I have got soaked, Also got snowed on twice
I have dropped 3 KG's since crimbo, So well on track for a total loss of about 12kgs for the gran fondo campag mid June

On Thursday 15th feb it's all change, It will be my last day working for the bank, And i will fly to Cape Town in the evening for the wedding on Sunday,,,, Rest assured i will be trying my hardest to get a free upgrade from the airline, last time i used the line"were off to get married" it worked a treat!!!!
The divorce was messy but flying 1st class was a right fuckin touch!!.

I had planned to get my 1st sowing of the year done before i headed off,,,, But the cunts at Thompson and Morgan are so fucking slow at dispatching orders i had to cancel my order, They managed to take the money from my card in 2 minutes,,, but posting 2kgs of seed potatoes within 4 weeks was to much of a challenge for them,,,,,,,,, gardeners beware Thompson and Morgan are fucking shit!!!

On a brighter note i have done about 250kms on my new bike(look 595) So far so good, It feels very stiff and pretty responsive, looking forward to taking it to France in March, I will be able to report how it feels on longer rides with plenty of climbing and fast descending, It fit's into a bike case no problem.

Hopefully my next post will be from SA.

Bangin tune!!

Feb brings many changes for RTS

Axel Mercx and Saul Rasin, couldn't believe it when we dropped them, Saul put in a dig, But he just couldnt handle the pace, Tugboat and Andy 35st between them, are no match for a couple of out of shape pros,
Axel took the picture, saul was in the huff after we dropped him, So refused to have his picture taken with us.

February is looking like a real month of change for Ronniethescot

New bike, Look 595
New job, large city law firm
Honeymoon in Hermanis SA
New lawn, and the new tatties are getting planted next weekend
And a new addiction to painkillers, due to a wisdom tooth making me suffer like a fat bastard on alpe d'huez in the middle of summer!!

I will get a photo of the new bike up over the weekend,,,,,, And it does fit in a bike case before you ask.

So far i have signed up for 2 Gran fondo's

Not been out on the bike much this week, been busy working, plus loads to do around the house

Have a good weekend


Love this
