Guilty pleasure

I went out on the mighty DPNC ride today,,,, Its a mixed bag for me, always a really friendly bunch, plenty of banter, get to ride with old friends, And burn off a shit load of calories,,,,Then on the flip side, a 4hr ride means being out the house for 6 hrs, normally takes about 1hr to get over there and the same to get back, sometimes I ride back, but its a shit ride back via croydon, sutton, cheam all in the mid day traffic(chavaramma),,,, Its a slow ride never more than 26/27kph ave, lots of junk miles ,just sitting in the bunch talking shit, low power output, low heart rate etc etc,,,,, But I can't knock it, I really enjoy going out on this ride as I have made many friends . And sold a ton of cycling gear to half of them!!!!

Dropped quicker than a size 16 model

I decided to have a shot at the Dulwichparagon womens/beginners chaingang last night!!!! What a kick in the balls, no women or beginners,,,,, ideally I was hoping for a load of size 8, early 20's decent fanny.

Even with the lack of quality fanny on show I thought fuck it, I will still go out and ask some of the younger lads if there sisters might come along next week.

We set off at a steady pace, after a shocking 20 minutes I was fucked, after 32 minutes I was heading home!!!!! I truly have no idea what went wrong, Just never had any gas in the tank, ?????? I have done very little riding over the last 6 weeks and picked up a wee bit of weight????? So basically I'm a fat fucker who needs to ride more

Stats for the ride are
14.2 kms
power ave 252
weight 89.2kgs

I will have another bash next week, Try and get a bit further, and get a few more digits/stats from the ride.
