Morning bumders

Up watching highlights of the GT racing, playing tennis in a bit. Hopefully a bike will feature today, planning on a trip to the pub later too as a mate is moving away.

Oh, and the F1 will feature heavily today too.

    Morning Gimps,

    My local supermarket has got a permanent offer on of a free coffee (and newspaper) if you spend a fiver: looks like I'll be shopping a bit more often than I used to. We're going to play bikes down at Bedgebury tomorrow so I'll be doing some bike fettling today. Have borrowed a burds bike off someone we know so wifey can try it but hope she doesn't go for it as I want the space in the garage for my n+1 bike :)

  • Afternoon Losers!

    Another day of just sitting in front of the tv for me sadly. It's really boring being limbless. Hopefully my mates are off to the pub later, so I can at least have a couple of drinks, but not too many as it's dangerous enough as it is going up the stairs. A little alcohol might make things worse!

    Laters!

  • S'up homos.

    Been for a ride on the newly built rigid hopper this morning in preperation for the E2E in 2 weeks time.
    Findings: After some initial difficulties finding a good gear, it's pretty rapid uphill.
    Coming downhill with no suspension after riding the Bionicobvious for a couple of years is...... an experience.
    I need some new headset bearings
    I need to replace the BB
    I could do to drop the saddle by 10mm or so.
    I might try winding in the brake levers a bit closer to the bar, see if that helps with the old finger cramp (obviously, nothing is going to completely solve it, it's a rigid ffs).
    There is something sketchy going on with my rear hub. It's making an odd noise when freewheeling in a very high, or very low gear, like one of the pawls is sticking or something is loose. Weird how it's only at the top or bottom of the cassette though.


    Aaaaanyway, got to run to the supermarket in a bit, then having a BBQ tonight.

    For something a bit different tonight, I have some Ostrich burgers, and some wild boar and apple burgers which will be done on the BBQ.

    day 1 done

    150 miles & 7,000 ft of climbs with an average speed of 18.1 - knackered!

    Drinking count, last night 5 ciders, today one whiskey at the Glenmorangie distillery after 100 miles and a couple of pint of cider at the end, quick shower then back for drinking part deux.

    Tomorrow takes us past Jimmy Pedo's house - think that may be a perfect stop for a p1ss
