    Morning

    What does an art deco evening involve?

    Going for a spin to work to check the bike still works. Woke up to the news that there's been another hit and run involving a cyclist (and car) on my route :(

    Morning Slackers. No work just lookng after mutt and youngest as half term. Pig based breakfast on the cards as a reward for him scoring twice yesterday in his match. Suspect gentle jog later and perhaps a quick blast on the bike.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Perfect Art Deco evening must involve looking at colnago’s?

    Nice windy walk with the hound and now waiting for the wife to make a decent pig based breakfast. Out to the beach for a play and nice lunch. Later is the holiday local

    Morning folks,
    Bit chilly out there again, surely it needs to get warmer now. Busy weekend of being out quite a lot and not doing DIY has resulted in my back being very broken today, that's not right. It could have been the two smallish children wanting to be picked up yesterday. Pesky kids, grumpy teenagers are so much easier.
    Was up in the big smoke with wife's nephew and his lot, passed by what must be SG's favourite pub.

    A fairly normal Monday here, should probably do some work now. Very glad it's a short week.

    Aren't art deco type parties wear very little or way to much. Toga,s spring to mind and silly pineapple infused alcoholic beverages.

    In the De La War Pavilion (Bexhill) whilst dancing the Charleston. Surely.

    Very windy here today. Although tomorrow is sorted, today I need toots activity ideas.
    Must make some phone calls, if I get some peace.

    Please check that MF is not in your loft.

    Laters.

    Morning,

    slightly warmer than all weekend, hopefully the upward trend on the mercury continues.

    If MF is in his loft surely he can just "escape" by standing between the joists?


    Also, Pinno, no car washing over the weekend, Pressure washer decided all water should come out the casing for the pressure washer an not the lance, so that was interesting.

    No1 bike is being a pain leccy shifting playing up for some reason so No2 is being promoted for now, have a force groupset lurking ill probably chuck on, this 1X business is no fun on long rides.

    As this silly running malarkey has now been put to bed I decided that today was the day I start my regular training loop in the morning. 35km with 500m of climbing so nothing major.

    Got the clothing wrong, stuck my head out the door at 6.30 and dressed appropriately, got to the top of the big climb and was freezing, well just above as Garmin says + 0.3 degrees.

    Legs were aching, I was sluggish, dragged up the hills and shivered down the descent. Average speed was down massively from this time last year, HR was most likely higher than normal.

    Did I enjoy it? ****ing right I did!

    Carpet fitters turned up unannounced this morning, not ready for them so it's all hands to the pump tonight to finish in time for them making a second appearance on Wednesday. Other than that, I might go to bed early so I can ride again tomorrow.

    MF could try escaping by stepping between the joists but I suspect he'd get stuck about halfway through. Leccy shifting, urghh next you'll want an ebike.

    Yep running sucks. Next up, ditch the Garmin and don't give a flyer about ride times: I reckon it's more fun that way.

    Rode into work this morning - I'm sure I was a bit faster than usual as the half term traffic wasn't too bad and I'd taken the mudguards off the bike. Quiet in work as well for a change as the top brass are off on some jolly, so time to catch up on stuff.

    Sounds like Clarkson the other day in the toblerones: https://www.facebook.com/thegrandtour/v ... 232819669/ (can't find the clip anywhere other than Facebook).

    Have to admit I obsess about the data - that’s the inner geek not being so inner

    No point having a Garmin if you're not going to read into what it spits out, however today was just a lost cause.

    Garmin - bin it.

    You see SG' South of the river might be a bit spit 'n' sawdust for you but there's more fun to be had.

    The ride home was a bit slower than the ride in as I had to navigate past herds of hippies and scruffy [email protected] who were protesting against climate change by blocking Waterloo Bridge. They weren't very friendly: a couple of them scowled at me when I smiled and pointed out what a lovely cold day it was :)

    You'd think they'd be giving cyclists a guard of honour.

    Too bloody right, I expected a bit Wayne's World 'We are not worthy'. Mind you, I think a lot of them were too far off their t1ts on weed to do that.
