Met Mr.Speedplay at Cam and Dursley park and ride.
We "attacked" Whiteway hill out of Dursley then down into Wotoon back through North Nibley

Over 2000ft climbing in 30 miles. Only another 5970miles to go this year to equal last year.

I went out this morning as well.

25 miles from Oldland Common, out via Westerleigh to Chipping Sodbury then back via Pucklechurch.

I want to try and keep that up as a minimum distance at least twice a week, I've started a spreadsheet already study

Attacked the hills like 'dead sheep' [ in the same way that Dennis Healey MP famously described an attack by Geoffrey Howe MP in the House of Commons : like being savaged by a dead sheep!]

A slight frost on the cars, so pretty nippy...but a rare clear blue sky with views in every direction across the NBCC parish.

My first miles of 2013 comprised 17 minutes on the turbo trainer; for me, at the moment, that's a record.

Not to bore you all, but I'm making some progress after my "forced dismount" back in October. The pelvis now looks as though it's coming along nicely; I tried the turbo about 3 weeks ago but the bones were still a little painful and I was getting some muscle pain in the groin area, but I'm putting that down to 10 weeks of complete inactivity. This last week has seen a significant easing of the muscle pain and the bones themselves now feel fine. Hooray! BTW, I now know how Andy Schleck felt!

The biggest problem is still the shoulder; the physiotherapist noted that the end of the clavicle (collar bone) has become partially separated from the top of the shoulder at the outboard end, resulting in restricted movement of the shoulder. Looking this up on t'internet it appears that it's a fairly common sports injury associated with a broken collar bone (cyclists and rugby players, apparently) and caused by damage to the ligaments. I may well be referred to a hostipal in Bristol for an opinion, but they don't always do anything about it. Besides, if I've got enough movement to do what I want and it's not too painful, then do I really want a surgeon to have a go at it with his chain-saw? Maybe, maybe not.

I'm trying to build up the turbo to about half an hour per day over the next few weeks, and I'm targeting riding a real bike at Easter. In the meantime I look forward to seeing you guys at Scott's birthday bash at Marshfiled on Sunday.

Had to try out the new Garmin, obviously.

James B - that's an impressive ride for a New Year's Day.

Cooky - great news. All progress is good progress and the planned gradual build up sounds very wise for a full recovery in time for the late spring/early summer when the days will be long and sunshine filled (just like last year!!)
