    Another sunny day indeed.

    Today will consist of the usual Sunday school and family type stuff plus hopefully a bit of relaxation time 8)

    Brunch at 10 ish today, though I am suffering enough to be unsure of how I will handle it. Ride cancelled due to brunch and well the stupid time I got in at. But a good time was had by all.

    Enjoy your day ladies

    Today I have managed to get a sore throat, so I will be relaxing and getting ready for my trip to Poland tomorrow.

    Morning Lycra Wearers,

    Having survived my trip to Chavsville-on-Sea yesterday I am hoping for a more cultured day. Started with coffee and some peace 'n' quiet so we're off to a good start. A trip to Waitrose may figure, although a the 'Falle norks challenge' may be more difficult than I originally thought :P

    didn't make it to the isle of grain, mainly as i hadn't actually planned a route in any more detail than 'over tower bridge then go east', eventually ended up on the a289 and had a bravery failure involving visions of high speed screaming metallic death

    took the first junction and a road heading into the sticks, got lost, had a sandwich and a coke in a one-shop village, got lost again, came across a sign claiming that cycle route 1 to gravesend was thataway, handy i thought

    it began as a road, became a fairly smooth strade bianche, then a rough potholed rock strewn strade bianche, at various points hemmed in by hedges etc. leaving a gap narrower than me

    so there i am on a road bike taking it fast as i can to smooth it out and wondering how far it is to gravesend

    i saw 3-4 others riding things that looked like stevo's castoffs, then after one final insult comprising a long stretch of fractured concrete slab i finally reached a road and discovered a new noise which turned out to be due to a saddle clamp bolt having been shaken loose

    got lost a few more times, had eggs on toast at the giggling sausage cafe, then back to civilisation and the streets teeming with lovely ladies with much bronzed thigh and unfettered jubs (great name for a band)

    Just flopped on couch with glass of vino bianco in hand. Shattered but at least it hasn't rained over the past few days while while I've been sleeping under the stars (in fact it's been too hot, but I'm not complaining).
