    Park run with eldest (his idea) followed by haircut and other boring stuff in town, then party at a friends followed by another local party. Going to be excessive

    Morning, no parkrun chasing yummy mummies today as heel issue has flared up again and resting it till tomorrow's bike race. Oh the joys of getting older. On better news OH is taking me out for a drink later. Enjoy the lovely wkend weather folks.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Eldest has just got ready for the park run and I thought I would check the times and it’s cancelled this week because of the food festival :(

    nippy start, but quiet roads early on, many contrails in the morning sky

    Enjoy your holiday Stevo.

    Hot and sunny. Mrs H3 dodging child care by going for afternoon tea. Leaving me with mini and the dog. Sure we will think of something to do.

    As an aside, glorious ride riddled (162 miles), been to town, had lunch, just mowing the lawn then have a snack, some weights and dinner.

    Afternoon folks, grey and not very warm here. Been out to do some of the touristy stuff, it was a bit of a struggle. Stumbled across an anti Brexit march going to the Brandenburg gate. Just had a bit of a nap as I was a little weary having been out until dawn. Probably repeating that tonight so will have to get ready to go straight to the airport when we get in. Having a right laugh though.
    Enjoy the holiday Stevo.

    Wow, 162 miles before lunch!

    Is 162 the product of xMF.m, where x is the number of MFs riding and m is the number of miles ridden? (a formula sometimes known as the MM1 convention).

    So 3 MFs riding 54 miles is 162 miles, or 18 MFs riding 9 miles is also 162 miles. Or is there another method of riding 162 miles before lunch that I don't know about?

    He just rides at 40 mph for 4 hours. Soft pedalling see? Recovery ride isn't it? The MFs are made of different stuff to you and me.

    Where should I go if I wanted a custom steel frame, off which to hang etap and some whooshy wheels wot roll nicely, plus matching bits and bobs? I'm softening a bit on buying myself a bike.

    Oooh, is that your shiny bike? Nooiice. Except for the white bar tape. :wink:

    I'm going to have to do some googling. Then get back to the original thought that it's an extravagance I can ill afford.

    Evening
    Now grandson less, seems quiet but somehow less tiring. Hip still playing up need to go see someone about it next week.
    Did manage my feeble shoulder weights regime but little else today other than the wearing of my new Panama hat.

    All gone well so far. Just been out and stuffed ourselves silly on Greek food. Now chilling in the hotel bar with a cold G&T while some middle aged woman croons away in Greek. Tomorrow is a lie in, late brekkie, a spot of sunbathing and watching the England game on a big screen in one of the open air bars with some suitably Englandy drinking :)

    MF - will start sampling the Ouzo tomorrow.

    We didn't get out till 10pm so nork free so far. Although I can understand why pics of norks in Scarborough might not be that popular.
