Is Richmond Park fully navigable at the moment? I've only got a hand full of commutes under my belt this year and I noticed a closure sign between Dark hill and Broomfield.

What's the crack?

    Rule #5 // Harden The Feck Up.
    Rule #9 // If you are out riding in bad weather, it means you are a badass. Period.
    Rule #12 // The correct number of bikes to own is n+1.
    Rule #42 // A bike race shall never be preceded with a swim and/or followed by a run.

    Flayed the end off my index finger with potato peeler so I wasn't able to wear gloves or use levers. Got over that, but then I've been interviewing.

    Have secured a new role so should be riding next week.

    Where to now? Saw someone coming off Dark Hill onto the Kingston Gate roundabout this morning so I guess you can get through, not sure if he’d taken the trail for a stretch though.

    Depends. Have three options.

    1) Victoria for four months followed by two months at Paddington Basin
    2) Six months in Paddington Basin
    3) Six months in Brussels.

    All include two days a week from home.

    Was thinking about taking the TT bike out at the weekend so the trail won't really be an option.

    There was supposed to be 2 weeks of badger related road resurfacing between roehampton an robin hood gates, it's due to be finished by next week (started on the 14th) but I haven't ridden that way to see how it's going.

    Probably not a good idea then, unless they finished today of course. Good luck with the new role, wherever it may be.

    Take option 3 and claim the equivalent of a settled status in Belgium? Might be handy for future employment in the EU
