    Wet out, parkrun looms, no dad's taxi duties later. Wifelets taxi duties instead. Early to bed as drive down to St Albans early in the morning for lads to compete in competition.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Chores, bike parts, beer & meat need acquiring for tomorrow's ride and BBQ.

    Roof on yesterday, raining today equals result
    Work done yesterday therefore lounging type day with cricket followed by rugby, rugby and rugby equals another result
    Zwift mountains done yesterday therefore flat route today is third result

    Planted some Genovese basil seeds, went for a drive in the Isetta to the market for some goats cheese, now sat with feet up awaiting arrival of café, day's work done, may take the rest of the day off :D
    my isetta is a 300cc bike

    Didn't go to Southampton, this is good. So the traditional slow start was enjoyed. This was followed by pottering interspersed with lounging. Currently lounging. Should go and finish tidying the garden really but there seems to be a lot of gravity in the region of the couch at the moment.

    Did the long trek North this morning, in near record time: now in the m following the footy. Later may involve a trip to the chippy and some cold cider.

    Weather forecast for Wales now looks bloody awful.

    You'll just have to man up. Hopefully, the van won't get up due the mud and you'll have to expend some energy.

    Now a fully trained and authorised Community SpeedWatch volunteer operative, means get to play with those laser guns. Pretty cool bits of kit, can measure speed at over 600m distance. Means you're clocked before you spot me, even with the compulsory hi-viz on.

    Now just got to convince one of the others to tag me on a hot run down the hill into the village - my Garmin never shows me above 60, I reckon I get faster than that.

    Paid up member of the legalised highwaymen eh. Do you actually get to rob motorists or just scare them?

    I'm the dandy highwayman who you're too scared to mention
    I spend my cash on looking flash and grabbing your attention
  • Stevo_666Stevo_666 Posts: 46,831
    Some might disagree that a hi viz jacket is looking flash.

    Not too scared really, I just go past bang on the limit giving an appropriate hand signal :wink:

    And that is exactly the purpose. Hand gestures are of course optional, at the discretion of the individual, and bi-directional.

    There is a big village green in the middle of ours, lots of kiddie playground kit. We have had 2 kiddie knockdowns there in past year, and while speed may or may not be a factor, a visual deterrent may have the desired effect on the f-wits who boot it past just because they can.

    When tagged, no prosecution, but do get a warning letter from police, and if speed high enough a visit from proper polis to have a word.

    Monty's. I was surprised how fast they could run when we skipped the bill but they can't throw a knife for toffee.

    Monty's is good. The boss is usually very happy and smiley, right up until you legged it at least. Good to see beer other than just Cobra and Kingfisher as well.

    Best onion Bhajis I've had for a while. Always a good sign.
