'ning

to wfh or not to wfh that is the question, with no tdf to watch, leaning towards office, at least for a bit

such weighty decisions, and not yet had a coffee

    Office for me, which is a shame as I won't get back in time to walk the rugrats up to yuff club

    Morning World. Not working today, going for long ride in a bit. Just about to see young oxo off on school trip to France. Being taken for a meal later as its my Birthday by the wife and oxo junior. Embrace your Monday folks.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Morning, happy birthday oxoman
    Dentist at 9 o'clock, that will leave plenty of time for a ride across the wolds
    Looks like it's going to be a nice day here

    Morning folks,
    Yes, happy birthday oxo. Quite a pleasant wobble in to work this morning, sun was shining and it was a nice temperature. Got my cousin coming in today about a work project so I think we'll have to go out for a spot of lunch, then he's coming too mine later for dinner. Other than that I'm going to be annoying my colleagues by telling all my customer's I'm going on holiday at the end of the week. Should probably get someone to make me a cup of tea, haven't had one yet.

    Happy birthday, Oxo.

    I'm off up to the beautiful north later

    HB Oxo!

    Lovely day for anything except sitting in an office, at least 30m from a window.

    Stunning day here but general toots duties and coughing up junk means that i'll delay a pedal. Being of reptilian origin, the extra warmth later will assist.
    HB Oxoman and all that jazz just to remind you of the ticking clock.

    How the tyres Hoppy?
    What's it like over there Gazza?
    Where the hell are all the usual Monday slackers?

    Laters.

    Tyres are still lovely Pinno. Trying to work out best PSI - did them up to 105 rear and 100 front to begin with (recommended minimum on the pack was 100), but they feel more comfy a few days later. Not been out for a proper ride on them yet.

    Happy birthday Oxo. Enjoy the peace that result from having sprogs abroad on school trips as I am just now.

    Good pedal in and should be a good one on the way home this evening if this weather keeps up. So nice that I went via Regents Park to grab my lunch 8)

    I always say make exercise fun, otherwise it's just hard work and you'll never keep a regime going :P

    Lucky I packed my shades this morning...

    Young lad that works here was at BPW on Friday, had an absolute blast. He used to race motocross so is pretty fearless. Came off a few times but was wearing motocross body armour so no injuries.

    Afternoon slackers, HB meat based stock cube man!

    Had to bail off work this morning after a full weekend in Weston Super Mare with friends. Even managed a reasonable pedal around Somerset and through Cheddar Gorge.

    Onwards to dinner and an early night.

    Fvck - lift to airport with my father means I arrived 3 hours before the flight departs. Then the EasyJet flight is delayed by an hour and a quarter - fvck

    Same as me except he was probably faster and more fearless :)

    Out of interest, can you ask him which were his favourite runs? For us it's Enter the Dragon, Dai Hard, A470, Pork Belly, Coal Not Dole, Zut Alors and Insufficient Funds.

    (Edited to add another run to annoy Pinno :wink: and to say I bet his favourite was Enter the Dragon as it's got some decent moto x style jumps on it).

    that's what airport lounges are for

    enter lounge, achieve state of numbness, stagger to gate, board, zzzzzz, arrive, it's the only way to fly

    I normally would but I'm only doing a 1-way 1-hour flight. The lounge would cost more than the ticket and today of all days it will be full of kids. I can go into a "zen state" as my daughter calls it - I've had plenty of practice - I just don't need the flight to be late. I was hoping to have dinner out with my boys (have only seen the youngest 3 times this year) but it will be nearly 10pm before I'm off the plane.

    ah, if it's short hop home i can understand

    sans lounge i try and find a quiet place, finding an unused gate can be much more pleasant than in the main areas

    i save the zen state for dull meetings :)

    Sorry, I forgot how tough it must be for you seeing people talking about enjoying their bikes :)

    I had a lovely pedal in the sticks. Apart from a plethora of silly tourists getting lost in the back lanes, some farmers in their pick ups, some farm hands in their trattors and a few feed trucks. Much more than usual. B4stards.

    Top idea T47, those cozy dunt peds will definitely learn a lesson if they get hit by a bike that weighs more than you do :)
