    Morning. Gentle ride into work as grabbing overtime and missing the bank holiday crowds today. Blue sky and no clouds suspect scorching later. Barbeque for later and lots of beer planned.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Morning

    Pleasant outside right now, sunny but cool and fresh.
    We're off to the Costa del cymru for the Victorian festival. Getting the train because the roads will be carnage this afternoon.
    Arms sunburnt after yesterday, need a jersey with elasticated sleeves so lots of suncream going on today.
    Might go on a trip around the mines if it's a bit warm outside.

    Only 4 more days until Pitch Perfect 2 is on.

    MF is starting to get giddy. It’s gonna be brilliant.

    He still doesn’t feel well though so is going to get pilled up an hit the Pastis.

    Morning folks, another glorious day in paradise. Another day of pottering and enjoying the sunshine with a healthy dose of aimlessness. Probably have a barbecue later.

    pleasant sunny 80k, barring the censored uk roads and swarms of flying things intent on colliding with me

    have a snack, then sunbed time i think

    130k followed by a couple of pints. Roads are awful, more pothole than road. Chap I rode with was on a brand new pegoretti dripping with campag. Not as quick as my Planet X.

    Nice ride on dead legs to south Shropshire for some hippy family festival. Now sitting in the sun whilst the wife searches for beer. I’m in the good books because I’ve said I will drive back

    I hope you tried hard not to look like you were feeling sorry for him :)

    The closest I'm getting to cycling today is washing the communter as it hasn't been cleaned since last year and is meant to be white. Will ride into work tomorrow when it's a bit cooler, I don't do heat very well.

    Afternoon.
    Had to help the missus with her dawn raid on next doors overgrown jungle, which is invading our garden. So it was all a bit slash and burn with out the burn.
    As the guy who owns the house lives in London and appears to have abandoned it, I’m hoping he doesn’t appear for a while especially as she wants me to chop down a couple of 30 foot trees. Any advice anyone.
    Now looking a bit red and grazed everywhere, we don’t have poison Ivy in the U.K. I hope.

    are the trees on his land? you could get yourself in real trouble if you felled them

    even if you're trimming stuff that's crossing over from his side, you should chuck it back over the fence as the clippings are his property (plus it saves you having to dispose of them and should be more fun)

    if it's really bad check with the council

    Im not fast enough for your Planet X so I’d rather have the Peg.
  • webboowebboo Posts: 3,148
    The neighbours at the back paid for someone to fell a load of huge trees that were blocking there light. He told them to get with it if they wanted. So we are sort of doing the same. Left all the stuff we cut down on his land. I suppose we could just leave things then sue him when his dead tree falls on our shed or when the Ivy causes our wall to fall down.

    I'd rather have the peg too. Lovely looking machine. I'd wreck it in no time though.

    Sounds reasonable, maybe just check with him it's ok to do the same. He'll probably be grateful that he's not having to do it.

    If they're near any overhead power lines the electric company will sometimes come and cut them down/back. Saves you the hassle, our neighbours have done that a few times.

    Just call the local plod and tell them they are paedos. That will solve your problems.

    Tired legs meant for a suntan ride.

    Still had a quick one and dare I say it the busy (for me) month is doing me some good.

    No more faffing with traffic lights , just 50m TT efforts around Cambridge. It's bloody glorious. I may find a ride which loops up all the mini climbs around here. A poor man's AGR

    Meh. Just dropped the laptop on the cat. He's not happy. I've still got my left arm.

    Me worked all day gain me. Bollox. The end is nigh ( I think). Give or take some tiling, flooring, excavation and a shed load of silly jobs.

    Laters.

    MF has decided to marry Beca. This is now his mission for 2018/19.

    TDNFNATN has yet to find out and kick his head in.
