What motivates me? I guess I have an 'Inner-Motivation'.
I train solo, so I have no one to push me, but myself.
--- New Years challenges: --- 25 Sportives (12 over 100miles. Inc two 130 milers). --- Cycle 6000 miles. --- At least one 100km ride, every month.

Welcome to the informal General UK group!
Almost time to start lowering the pace and think of the colder months ahead...
Mountainbike group for all loving xc,am,enduro,dh, freeride or whatever u name the time spend on your bike
June is pritty wet here in the Great Britain! Lots of preperation for the Olympics going on! Have u got tickets? Or will you be watching?
I changed the name into Ambit & t6d/c lovers. I have used the t6d for years with satisfaction. Now I also have the AMBIT: WOW!
Great to have you in this group, have a nice ride with your bikes!
So 2014 Is here. Spring is nearly turning to summer in the north and the winter is nearly upon us in the south. For me its that time of year for hearty stews, buttered beans and large slabs of fresh bread with lashings of butter. Would I do another 1 hour on the bicycle for that? You bet! :-) Eat well and exercise often :-)
The Ambit3 Connected family is launched, kicking and growing now with the Ambit3 Run!
