Hey guys, it's been a while so I thought I'd pop in to see what's going on and who's still around - would be rude not to say hello. By the look of things, not much has changed. :D

    Storck Man appeared and identified himself. DDD still doesn't think LA doped. Greg66 came out and admitted to triantelopism (and then promptly proved it by falling over and injuring himself). No one seems to go to the Morpeth any more. Think that's about it...

    How is the funky bike venture going?
    Pannier, 120rpm.

    Haha!

    Whyfore has the Morpeth been shunned? That is terrible news. I do miss it.

    My bike co is coming on well, if slowly, thanks. It has been a lot of work but the reviews have been great and it finally feels like that effort is paying off and I'm making some real progress.

    It's a harsh lesson. I bought tri bars and someone nicked my road bike the morning they arrived to save me from fitting them.

    We really should organise a drink though, we still haven't managed the Christmas one. Morpeth in September?

    I'll need to work out a good excuse to visit London, but I'm game. :)

    It's more of a sleeveless compression unitard. Really tight. But once I've added arm warmers, compression socks, a fuel belt and a sexy bandana, I ROCK the look. I often notice people pointing at me in admiration.

    Welcome back, btw, Roastie! I do a regular fashion tips webinar if you're interested...
    Swim. Bike. Run. Yeah. That's what I used to do.

    If it tied in with the ToB (11th or 12th Sept) then even I might be able to turn up! Thinking about visiting the folks to watch the Camberley stage.

    Organise it and they will come.

    Well. Not me obviously, but they will.

    What is the worst that can happen?
    You have a quiet solo pint and head home. I can think of worse ways to spend a couple of hours.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.
