No early night last night as the family engineer (me) was called out to assist with some ikea wardrobes, still up at 6 for a pre work ride.

Hopefully today will be short and I'll end up bed by 8.30 as I'm goosed and wanted to stay in bed today.

Onwards to completing the strava climbing challenge and more tea!

    Seriously considering that getting up, getting coffee and returning to bed this morning to spend my time sat in bed winding up folk on here is possibly not the best use of my day.

    Oh s0d it! I'm getting up now, my conscience has just got the better of me.

    Going to stare at some art, it's ok I am a qualified professional, don't try this at home :D

    Morning all,
    Still coughing my lungs up on a regular basis, still hurts like hell because my ribs hurt. This is not good and I've had enough of it. It's a lovely sunny day out there and I enjoyed most of the ride in, even though it hurt. It still beats sitting in traffic though. Hoping for a quiet day today without interruptions from retail customers. Unfortunately I doubt it.
    T47, you not venturing into the Gillian thread then? I'm getting bored of it, there are only so many ways you can call someone a hairy palmed fool.

    35.1km in the bag, censored -shave-shower, fruit for breakfast and driving the desk my 9.05am.

    I need to knock 5 minutes off the loop.

    Daughters 15th birthday today, a quick 33km in before the birthday girl arose from her pit....

    Breakfast of porridge and a banana.Bank notification of a rather large and essential payment received today, off for teen daughters birthday meal this evening before a Skype/business call at 20.00 tonight...

    Making stupid people look stupid is not fun, making intelligent people look stupid, now that is fun, I am starting out with myself and then when I have perfected my technique I will try it on others, doing rather well at the moment, need to find some intelligent people to wind up, any suggestions? :D

    You're right. I still find it hard to believe how stupid some people are. Yet I'm strangely drawn in, makes me pretty stupid too I guess. But I don't pretend to be clever or enlightened.

    You're probably in the wrong forum for that :)

    Evenin', woke up at stupid o'clock thinking about a knotty work problem but all was cured by a good blast into work and back on the bike and some tea. Bloody lovely riding weather out there today.

    Tomorrow will be free bacon-based brekky and a techy 'round table discussion' with a small group of anoraks, sorry peer group :) Helps avoid work for a while anyway.

    I think whoever got to the pub first is the true winner.

    Matt lost for a change.

    well nobody here died so that is a start. My ride was vaguely good, just ruined by the collapse of my superstar garmin/gopro mount which send garmin and gopro spilling across a road after a bolt has worn loose or snapped or god knows what (couldn't find it and I was on a busy road with a blind bend on the hill)

    Less than impressed

    After today's meeting I might have a source for these in the future at a stupidly low price

    Well Matt you just let us know,

    All seems ok, just need to write an email to superstar and be snotty (rubbish at that) and call GoPro for a new back (easy with that)

    You'll lose. I'm more than proficient having had a lot of practice.

    Be interesting to see how that goes. Their attitude in the road buying forum gets slated, but in the MTB section they seem to be rather better received.

    Yeah, saw some sh!t on the carbon wheel thread, guy has a point though, contact them first before you censored , I may have been unlucky but still, watchin £500 of kit fall off my bike at 30mph doesn't make me happy or confident
