    Rule #5 // Harden The Feck Up.
    Rule #9 // If you are out riding in bad weather, it means you are a badass. Period.
    Rule #12 // The correct number of bikes to own is n+1.
    Rule #42 // A bike race shall never be preceded with a swim and/or followed by a run.

    I was out at my works black-tie bash on Thursday night and despite the fact i didn't drink much I didn't get to bed until 2 a.m. plus back in canary wharf office on Friday meaning I was too old errr.. tired to make it on Friday evening #oldfart

    I heard from Dizzy Dane that you all had fun though.

    Yes, a very good evening. We did say we must do it more often or have a social ride with pub stop.
    Shame you couldn’t make it. We’re your ears burning? Good to meet DD and to see the others again.
    More than a touch chilly riding back. Nearly got left hooked riding into Kingston, mini cab was alongside and started indicating left.

    Hah! A little bit, yes.

    Here's my latest videos in case I haven't already posted them:

    The Hard Road; thrills and spills on the MTB in Les Gets in July

    Stressed Out: highlights of me and my other Saffer buddy Greg's trip to Hook of Holland

    Me and DD ride together plenty of times so we will give you guys a shout next time we have something in mind. Great rides I've tackled this year have been Oxford n' back (200km), Eastbourne n' back (another 200 k ride), Brighton n back (160k), Leith Hill Octopus (2,000 vertical metres) Croix de Fer and Alpe d'Huez etc.

    Lesser k rides are available upon request...

    Short sprints in a tailwind are my true calling, but I'm always up for a challenge..

    Ooh, I do like a wheat beer. Got some catching up to do on mine as well. Just got in from a very boozy lunch so now may not be the time. The ride in tomorrow may be very slow.
  • Thanks for a great evening. Great to meet you guys! Definitely keen for spring drinks, or on a ride with MTB-Idle :D
