Snoozed through a fair chunk of it, otherwise did nothing. More of the same in store this evening I expect.

    Currently packing car up to return from hols, wife stressed, kids about to be buried in Haldon forest and me going on MTB for a bit to destress before motorway driving. Bright side is wife will sleep, kids will exercise fingers and generally be quiet on return journey and I don't return to work till midweek.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Bit of a T47/Pinno day so far as I haven't done much :) Managed to write a packing list and get my hair cut. Time to get a bit of lunch from somewhere than will dona bit of packing before picking Stropteen up from her last day of work experience down at the vets.

    There's cold cider in the fridge for later. 6.8%abv as well.

    It's a cloudless azure sky here - I have the Synapse outside waiting for me to ride 20 miles home from work on. My wife will be driving home with all my 'stuff', so just me and the bike and 20 miles of Strava PRs to chase.

    Is it home time yet?
    Cube Reaction GTC Pro 29 for the lumpy stuff
    Cannondale Synapse alloy with 'guards for the winter roads
    Fuji Altamira 2.7 for the summer roads
    Trek 830 Mountain Track frame turned into a gravel bike - for anywhere & everywhere

    No :(

    Last full day in Tuscany today, not happy about that. Going to see my sister in Padova tomorrow then aunt & uncle in Verona Sunday. Heading into Switzerland to see a customer Monday before driving home Tuesday. Unfortunately I can only charge one day and night to the company and not the full 20 days. Wednesday could be a problem, I may have to nurseries someone.

    Nurseries someone? :?:

    Beautiful, perfect, cloudless summers day here. On the go since 5:30 but the end is in sight, last few mins before a two week break with a wedding thingy in the middle. Shame to be leaving the country when the weather is like this.

    A Polish-Irish wedding - should be a quiet and sober affair. If we don't hear from you again before you have the ball an chain attached, can you post video footage of the wedding punch ups on YouTube :D

    Loving the warm weather. Soon sleepy time, big ride tomorrow into the Hampshire hinterland with the very gorgeous Mrs BBGeek. We will take a picnic and have a beer stop.
    I hate my life, but this will make it all worthwhile. Happy weekend, everyone.

    My mountain bike is in bits in the shed. Must sell it.
    Pompetamine is for off-roading, and way more fun than any MTB I have ever ridden. Mind you, that is also in bits.

    Had to look that one up. I thought that was some sort of fruit.
