Hi there Cruddites.....

Today is Monday, Ok ride yesterday marred by horrendous mud clogging (not much mud, but it all stuck), had fun though on a rocky decent (on a near BSO with XCT forks I got some real arm buzz going!)....

Slept shite though and today is boring as hell as all the locals have F'd off early for Diwali/Dewali/Depahali (pronounce as your wish!)...may get the iplayer out later!
Currently riding a Whyte T130C, X0 drivetrain, Magura Trail brakes converted to mixed wheel size (homebuilt wheels) with 140mm Fox 34 Rhythm and RP23 suspension. 12.2Kg.

    It's Monday, and my legs still ache like a b*tch.


    It takes as much courage to have tried and failed as it does to have tried and succeeded.

    I'm trying to avoid the temptation to get a bacon roll, but the calling is strong.

    Happy Monday one and all,
    I've had a bit of a disaster today. A bit short of staff in the office and I told the sickly grumpy dwarf to fork off home and take his bad mood and germs with him. That I can handle even though it leaves us short staffed. The problem is I didn't get to have a cup of tea until just now, went to my biscuit tin and it was empty. Not a problem, check the bottom drawer to find that is also devoid of biscuits. Somebody must die, I guess I should blame the purchasing department.
    Onwards, to kill, or at least maim severely, in my quest for biscuits.

    How long has Arran worked for you? :)

    Evening Gits, in bike withdrawal mode and not been on one for nearly a week now. Will do a spot of MTFU pedal in through tomorrows 'storm' (20mph winds in the SE counts as a hurricane).
