'ning

ride and cafes

it's too cold, the bleak grey months stretch ahead without respite, engendering a profound despondency

need to book some hols, short term maybe slip in a gmc trip to dubai for some vital poolside research

    Main job today is to pick up my bike from the neighbours as I missed it's delivery yesterday

    Daddy daycare today involves lots of driving with kids football, hopefully the wife will be back as a reasonable time otherwise I've got to make the kids food and stuff

    Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to Wales we go...

    Ideal temperature for a spot of downhilling, as it's not nice when it's hot and you're wearing body armour. Could be a bit moist though.

    Have to get through in laws descending for lunch before I can escape.

  • Morning all

    Tired head (not hungover, just tired) after last night, just chillin' having a coffee and reading the paper, heading to the flicks with Bambina then family day.

    Going to take the Madone around the block to check all ok before using it for work next week.

    Cool! We can race each other but being Cat 3 I'll give you a head start.

    Just send me your Zwift details and we can race like racers and everyone at our workplaces will know that we are racers.

    Does that mean I was a decathlete when I was younger? Cool

    And a paperboy as well? Double cool.

    It's the racing of the future - no need to go and do it on the roads, you can race from your own man cave on your steed and put it to anyone else in the world whilst slagging off anyone who does ride on the roads because you are a category whatever Zwift racer racing your steed in your man cave. It's harder than doing it on the roads because it's in your man cave.

    Tell your colleagues at work that you are a category whatever racer and before long they will think you are Lance Froome and knicker elastic will be snapping in every part of the office from facilities to filing, procurement to publishing.

    That might explain the number of bikes you have already :P

    If I run over 3 cats on my bike can I be one too?

    Of course you did, what kind of amateur are you? Being aero helps the airflow from the fan pass over you more easily so you can put out more power. So aero gives double bragging rights and surely that's all that counts.

    Morning folks,
    Good day yesterday, ate loads and got some stuff done. Need to do a bit more stuff today, boy not too much of course.

    nippy start, temporary attempted warmth by sun before clouds trundled in

    seem to have been many idiot/homicidal drivers/cyclists/pedestrians released back into the community today, and most of them came my way, the only solution i can see is 9mm, si vis pacem, para bellum

    Afternoon All. Steady ride into work at stupid oclock this morning. Shorts ditched till summer i suspect as bloody cool this morning. Hoping it stays dry for the return later.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    MF - Cat 3?!? Since when have you had time for Cat 3 racing? Do they do that on Afghanistan? Cycling around the block in Aleppo must be tricky given the 'blocks' are in the way.

    Weather is shyte. Slept too well on zombie ant-inflammatory's (Naproxen). Going to bin them and ask for Diclofenac again so I can get beck to the real world. None today and I seem to be doing okay. If I hop on my bad leg long enough, will I kill the nerve?

    Last day of Vuelta, only the WC's to look forward to.

    Can someone pop up and strim my back lawn swamp thingy? It's a bit tricky with a stick.

    Laters.

    Hasn't the Tour of Lombardy been a decent race some years? Or am I thinking of another one :?:

    Afternoon. I bought a boomerang thing for 8 quid at the science museum yesterday. Just been at the park for a couple of hours like a little kid. Best 8 quid I've spent in ages.
  • Afternoon all. Cooking chicken for tea. Listening to Radio, Annie Nightingale talking to Mike Skinner from the Streets. Quite interesting, seems a smart fella. Mrs BBGeek has nodded off on the sofa - bless.
    In my experience, dinners only get cooked with lots of beer. Time for another. Not thinking about the washing up, or work tomorrow. Night all.

    Yep, forgot about the race of the falling leaves. It's a very picturesque 'tour' (now renamed Il Lombardia IIRC). Maybe Nibali can salvage something from his season with another mad descent.

    Zwift cat3 as I find it more difficult than road cat1.

    It's intense.
    It's a battle of tactics
    It's a battle of endurance
    It's a battle of fitness
    It's a battle of immense physical proportions
    It's a battle of the 21st century
    It's racing in your garage looking at a computer screen by yourself

    What more can you want?

    Aleppo isn't too bad so long as you can bunny hop over craters and piles of rubble.

    That sounds well cool.

    Any pictures both of the boomerang in action and passing norks?
