    Shoot sleep due to being full to bursting point with ale. Today is riding my bike for the first time in ages - going to be painful

    Morning. Family day out looking at large reptilian creatures down Oxford way. Sore head after last night's tribute band night but I'll live. Looking very nice outside almost spring like.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    gxp/bb30 and any press fit derivatives = censored .
    Campagnolo outboard cups in threaded bb shell = ace.

    Windy and wet here. First precipitation for a while. Seems odd.

    Can I offer you a waffeur thin mint, monsieur?

    Morning, doing a spot of online shopping here - need some new music for those boring motorway trips. I think some heavy metal and punk are in order. I expect other jobs when captain chaos and her apprentice get back :roll:

    i looked a couple of years ago, gave up, gxp is stupid

    bb30 is lovely, my shiny bike is bb30, tens of thousands of all weather riding, still lovely, the advantage of steel

    slightly nippy start, a pleasant ride, added a couple of cafe stops to enjoy sitting in the warm sun and replace many calories

    Just washed a winters worth of grime off the commuter bike - there was so much censored I washed in in the road and had to have a shower afterwards.

    I worked it out for you:

    Ashford > Salisbury > Bristol > Cardiff > Aberystwyth > Stockport > Durham > Redcar

    ...and possibly an over night stay in Durham. I mean, you wouldn't want to over do it.

    you do realise that if you take that route you'll either be poisoned by Russians or have your wheels stolen?

    at least if you have to get a train back to Brizzle you can pull a student.

    Had some pink gin last night mixed with aromatic Fever Tree to wash down the curry. Top stuff even if it did look like a cocktail.
