    Morning, dry but strong winds, doctors appointment yet again, the weekly shopping in that order, then either a bike ride or a couple of pints, you never know I might manage both

    Morning everyone, finished for a few days. Young I oxo at fracture clinic later to get replastered. Beers later along with a bike ride.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    urgh ... new place of work means my ride in is all uphill and 1/3rd of it is off road ... thinking I need to wimp out and stick a smaller front chain ring on the SS .... the uphil is acceptable, but I just grind to almost a halt cutting across the downland

    legs feel like Jelly ... the rest of me jiggles like jelly

    is that to or from work?

    downhill going home is a good thing

    thats "to" work ..... coming home is all down hill .... its the only thing that has stopped me putting the smaller ring on as I dont want to spin out ... that said though, the downhill off road is still a fair workout with the gearing I have .. especially when its muddy

    Keep the gears and grow those muscles :)

    Really miss that from my 1st job (even if it was only 1.5 miles each way).

    I'm sure you'll get used to the bigger gear on the ride in - I did after a few weeks. You just seem to get used to it.

    The overly complicated technical solution would be a flip flop wheel with a freewheel on both sides, put a bigger sprocket on one side and swap in/out a section of chain at work. A bit too much of a faff to do twice a day I think.

    Morning folks,
    Wimped out and drove in this morning due to being lazy and a wimp. Knee has been playing up a bit lately and was seizing up last night so thought I'd give it a rest today, although I think the biggest problem is the way I sit at my desk. Unfortunately they seem to be replacing the lights at work today, this means my gloomy corner will be all lit up. This is not good as others will be able to see when I'm asleep. At the moment they only notice if I snore.
    More importantly today is supposed to be cake day, but there has been a tendency to buy other stuff instead of just cake. Last time there were even sticks of celery and dips. Do these people not know the difference between cakes and rabbit food? Later will be the cafe, later still will be pub with the Mrs.

    Morning, three S's have been completed so s**t, shower an shave. Playing fuel roulette this morning cars showing 10 miles range, works more than that as is a fuel stop. Updates later.

    My knee really frickin' hurts.

    I have no idea what's going on with it. May just train the weakness out of it.

    Well my fickle left knee is currently working properly, which is remarkable considering I've spent much of the past week inside a fireplace in a range of unnatural positions, and intermittently kneeling on tools and bits of masonry. Hopefully finish the job this weekend and reward myself with a bike ride. Sunday looks like shorts weather!
  • step83step83 Posts: 3,866
    Made it to the petrol station unfortunately, an then to work which was more unfortunate. now doing battle with some moron who things using a roaming profile means he can log into multiple devices at once an not have file sync issues. Sports Directs nearby, they do cheap cricket bats...

    Still DIY meh. It's endless.

    On the plus side, the splinter stuck in my finger finally popped out tonight, about 8mm of finest ironbark. I am now somewhat less likely to catch death disease from infected bits. Result!
  • keef66keef66 Posts: 13,286
    No splinters, but lungs full of brick / cement dust and an impressive blister courtesy of the club hammer.

    I'm only used to a bit of light mouse and keyboard work!

    Bored. May go home on my bi-cycle.

    You're coming round to my way of thinking :)

    Busy day again, so time to relax for a bit. Will pop into the next doors party later on for some deadly nightshade punch and an eyeful of Spanish milfs.
