Hour record challenge
« on: June 06, 2015, 09:00:54 AM »
I challenge you!  8) In celebration of Wiggins' hour record attempt (which I suspect he'll fail!  ;) ) Do your own https://www.facebook.com/groups/331751880217660/permalink/883735228352653/ I've posted it here, but there's no reason why it can't be off-road, there's kudos in that alone.  8) I did one on the  way home from work. I had an horrific westerly headwind, a few hills and traffic to contend with and came in with a dispappointing sub-30km ride   :-[ Will try another, employing some marginal gains  ;)

Why not head down to Carmarthen velodrome?  ;)
Slower than the speed of dark

As Matt hinted, off the Black Mountain and down towards Carmarthen. Probably less than 400m of Ascent but maybe 1200m descent! ;) Needs an Easterly wind!  ;)
