- Local Trails are the Best Trails
- Searching out some local gravel for a recovery hour this evening......Bowie Racetrack was perfect! Dead flat, no-one else around, zero cars. 128 furlongs of easy riding. . . . #parvillacycles #gravelride #cycling #ciclismo #bowiemd #IFB
- A throwback for #timetrialtuesday, my last #ironmantri at Louisville in 2013. This year was going to be my "comeback" to the Ironman distance but it will have to wait until 2021. . . . #parvillacycles #IFB #swimbikerun #triathlon #2021goals #pactimo #gurucycles #ironmanlouisville
- 3 months of no swimming and I have to say that I am beginning to miss it. Don't get me wrong I like swimming but I don't like the process of the swim (drive to pool etc). It will be back before we know it as will races.... . . . #parvillacycles #IFB #swimbikerun #ironmantri #triathlon #swimming #triathlete #xterratriathlon #triathlontraining

Prognosticator of all Prognosticators.......2009
It's that time of year again when Punxsutawney Phil attempts to predict the remaining winter period for the year. I first wrote about this last year when Phil saw his shadow and therefore predicted six more weeks of winter.
Phil was back again today in Gobblers Knob and in front of 13,000 witnesses, he emerged to once again see his shadow and predict six more weeks of winter. Not that it came as much of a surprise really. Since 1887, Phil has seen his shadow 97 times, hasn't seen it 15 times, and there are no records for nine years, according to the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club.
So despite the balmy temperatures of yesterday I wouldn't be putting away the winter cycling tights and thermal jackets just yet!
