Our January challenges of riding a new road and completing a two hour ride have been getting you out in the first couple of weeks of the year.

Many of you have wasted no time in ticking off your January challenges. Our first email came in from Barrie Morris on January 2 who said; "with snow on the ground on New Years Day, riding was constrained to the garage and Zwift." But even then he couldn't fend off the cold conditions. "Duration limited to three hours by numb fingers and toes - even with winter socks, oversocks and gloves!" Well done Barrie, three hours and 75 miles on the turbo is not to be sniffed at.

Regular contributor to the CW5000 Facebook group Mark Fairhead was straight out of the blocks too, ticking off a near four hour ride and a new road near his home in Norfolk on January 2.
