    Moaning All. Out with eldest to find best route to his new jobs first placement, oh the joys of parenthood. Upside is it will be followed by a full English heart attack and not much else for the rest of the day. Slightly cool and damp over here.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    330 miles done on 500 ish to go - wish I wasn't going home

    Bright side 30 bottles of wine somehow fitted into the boot, had to take lots of bits off the bike - but worth it as wine and beer fridge will be full for a few days

    Morning folks,
    Traditional slow start is being had. Off to get some scoff shortly. Should manage a day around the house and with the Mrs at least. Reasonably sunny out but a bit fresh, got soaked riding home from the hospital last night. Haven’t ridden in the dark and rain since winter, that’s exactly why I like the summer so much.

    Glad to see you have your priorities right TLW. I have made a rough calculation that you have crossed La Manche?
    I find that after a week in France, driving on the left seems odd.

    No rain here and even a bit of sun. Which means... grass cutting :roll:

    Calais is sunny but cold

    Got the earlier ferry, so england bound in an hour. wonder if the traffic gods will enable a few ciders in the local later

    Good luck TLW. I once left Geneva in the morning driving on normal roads rather than autoroutes, realised I was in with a chance of making the pub by closing at 11 so put my foot down. Got there with moments to spare, then realised I hadn’t changed the time and it was only 10pm.
  • Always found the immediate jump from left to right okay. Then after a few days you set off on the wrong side of the road. Mind you I was a squaddie with a LHD car. And speed limits on British motorways difficult. Only in Britain can you move to lane three and slow down.
    TLW - passengers can hold more wine, make em work their passage. Or it’s the plank. Arrrgh..
    Cheap supermarket lager for me, and a wee bike ride. Laters.

    Watching a full moon glisten on the med from the terrace. Shame it's been a shitty bickery day.

    Where're the MF's? Did they say they were bicycling in France? Vuelta comes through here on Tuesday.

    Back down South in time to watch MOTD. Not a bad drive back down and now got a weekend's worth of relaxation.

    Back in time for MOTD or the pub? I know where my allegiance lies.
    Been out for a couple with the lad. I’m home, he’s gone to an all night bar in Peckham with some colleagues and his girlfriend. Said he might be back by dawn. I remember times like that.

    I never did find out if there was life in Peckham, John.
