Gulp. Here it is... 🎤🎧🙈
As you’ll get from the intro it’s pretty ... real.
Feedback from other athletes was that no one really talks about the gritty stuff.
So here’s the gritty.
Ps: it’s not a race
Pps: use headphones
Lock up your donuts; ultra-endurance cyclist Tiffany Winchester (@tiffo012) is back on #SpartaChicksRadio this week.
Tiff was first on the show in June, 2019 and shared her preparations for Paris-Brest-Paris (or PBP) - a 1,200km event held in France 🇫🇷 every 4 years.
Side note: that episode also became the 5th most popular episode of the year!
This time, Tiff returns to share how the event unfolded, the trauma it inflicted on her, the physical, mental and emotional toll it took on her and how she was able to recover from it.
An iconic race, and a great storyteller, require a long conversation. So I have divided this episode into two parts.
Foam spacers have now been added to the webstore for anyone using a Double Dipper bag with dropbars. They’re made by the great @andrewthemaker and work perfectly to free up more hand space when using the Double Dipper as a handlebar bag.
Aujourd’hui c’était découverte de la rando sur neige (sans raquette) !
Direction le plan d’hotones dans l’Ain et le plateau de retord pour un A/R de 7 Km en direction du crêt du Nu.
Ollie s’est régalé et n’a eu aucun souci avec cette nouvelle surface blanche :)
Pour nous, les bâtons ont bien aidé à éviter de glisser mais aussi à aider à marcher car dans la neige, c’est plus difficile !
Une belle expérience à refaire avec ou sans raquette ! Il n’y avait pas suffisamment de neige fraîche pour justifier leur usage.
Vidéo à venir ! Pensez à vous abonner à ma chaîne YouTube en lien dans ma bio 😊

Some photos from yesterday's audax the Willy Warmer 🚴 tough long day in the saddle but for the most part a beautiful route! Also, had to fix my first puncture on the road, first in beautiful sunshine then in the pitch black. But another audax completed and lessons learnt! #audaxuk#audaxrandonneurs#randonnée#randonneur
“These tires are totally tubeless” was the thought going through my mind as I was setting up these tires today. Why have I been holding out for so long, and why now? With only a few flats each year and the convenience of tubes being hard to beat, there hasn’t been any pressing need to make a switch. However, all my rims are tubeless compatible, I use tubeless rim tape, and I even have tubeless valves on hand. The only hang up is compressed air! When Omar from @allrounderbicycle handed me a set of tires for Therese’s bike I decided I would help her set them up tubeless. She had already been running tubeless in the past and the weight of the 26-inch tubes are nothing to scoff at, so it was the obvious choice for her. However, I needed to come up with a way to get her tires on, and pumped up. They were used so the beads were already stretched some. The set up was very simple, and Cazadero Supply has an air compressor, so it was settled. I had everything I needed for Therese, and the installation went so smoothly I decided to try a set for myself and purchased a pair of Gravel Kings in size 48mm. It’s hard for me to imagine I would be writing this but the tires went on so easily it might actually be easier than putting in tubes. I was able to fit the new tires on without levers and the compressed air seated the beads instantly. I waited to add the sealant after the bead was already seated to avoid the pitfall of having glue everywhere if things didn’t go correctly on the first try. All went well and the first ride over Old Duncan’s and Old Caz went perfectly. Who know’s, but I just may be a tubeless convert? #gravelkings#tubeless#gravelbike#randonneur#steelisreal#oldcaz#singletrackonrandobikes

Johanna Willi ( @tinkle.hikes ) is 23 years old, from #Switzerland ... she likes hiking, especially long distance, like the "Thru-hike the Pacific Crest Trail", a 2,650 mile (4,265 km) hike along the west coast of the USA (it takes 157 days ☺). About the GR20 where she hiked twice.... let's discover her experience in the post just published on www.gr20-blog.com (link in the bio)
