    I am on Strava. Will join the TFF group. I am in the ballot for ride London this year so hope to get a place. Need to start training soon as my current max distance is 55 miles. Will probably do a couple of sportives before London to help the practice.

    My teenage children used to do 6.5 minutes / 2km when intensively training at school. GB rowers would be under 6 minutes:eek: Now you’ve got a target to aim for. :D I’m more of a 9 minute man:whistle:

  5. If you're off 8.20 then make 8.00 your target, pace yourself using the 500m split times, 2.05 is 8.20 so go off at that and keep it there. Don't go off too fast, when I was training hard would often be quicker in second half. Have the drag set at 120 to 130 which usually corresponds to about 4 on the fan depending how much dust and rubbish has built up, don't do what the meatheads at the gyms do and put it on 10. Best workout going, would recommend some 5kms as well at nice steady pace. Used to be just over 18 mins for 5km and I'm only 5'9", 10.5st, that was 20 years ago though...

    Also joined, really enjoying cycling at the moment both off and on road so trying to keep up the momentum, sometimes literally!

  9. Got down to 8.34 on setting 7 which the gym guy told me to put it on - this is after a weights workout so probably a bit tired. Makes it easier to divide into 4 and head for that. I think to really improve I agree I need to be aiming for longer rows of 20-25 mins first - need to get some wifi headphones first!
