I've yet to upload a load of miles, it pleases me to see the only people doing more than me are pro's.

Top 5 on Redheugh North (thanks to the number 53 and some spirited drafting).
I used to just ride my bike to work but now I find myself going out looking for bigger and bigger hills.

Interesting. Strava has a ride recorded for me on 1 November 2027. But looking at the stats it seems old age will have caught up with me by then.

6 bloody minutes. That's pretty much the time wasted at traffic lights.

Don't worry. I'll be after that soon. The segment LDN->BN looks pretty savage to get top 10

I do have a 5th overall here: http://app.strava.com/activities/37424284#603140074 which is ok out of 1400 people!

22.6mph ave for 20 mins, in full commuting attire? ...

By heck, you Londoners are lucky I've let you off the hook for a while.

An article about Strava in the Sunday Times today having interviewed the guy who runs Veloviewer.

I can't read it all cos I can't be bothered to subscribe to the ST but it doesn't start well...

Edit: full article on FB

That rider in the ST article looks like Edds off here! Well i'm sure that's his bike :lol:

Edit: Looks like my observation powers are strong, after reading the article it appears it is.

It is indeed me. I was only expecting it to be a small article next to the cycling column of the paper. Didn't realise I would be page 5 of the paper (https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BCvS0OWCQAAXqg6.jpg:large) and on the internet.

You should have seen the look on the photographers face when he saw the rack. He tried so many different positions to try and get me standing in the way of it so you can't see it.

But alas, when the photographer got back to the lightbox, he decided not to go with the shot of you straddled over the pannier rack, using your thighs to obscure the black metal, and your hand cupped tightly round the saddle.

Reminds me of the time I was interviewed by the one and only Hugh Pym on an bit the BBC were doing about Science graduates going to work in the City. I was under the impression it would be about "transferable skills", instead the final edit portrayed me as if I had sold my soul to the devil.
