    Doing this really odd thing called a club ride! Haven’t done one in ages so should be a giggle

    Then brunch with some friends and a few jobs before pub time - got to love a bank holiday weekend

    Morning. Early ride into work for the next 12 hrs. At least it's not raining. Left OH to recover from any fallout from yesterday's party. Oops.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Sat here watching Shorty bunny hop over my 1200mm feather edge on her scooter. I taught her in about, ooh- 5 mins but if I vacate this position, she'll try silly manoeuvres.
    Today will be mowstly recovering from another rehab ride which was hilly with a stiff, cold headwind.
    Too cold on the way out and too warm in the way in with tailwind and sun.
    Beach walk later.
    Pancakes for lunch.

    TdY:
    Stage 1: Boring
    Stage 2: Boring
    Stage 3: Interesting. CCC and INEOS couldn't bag a sweet. Hee hee. Well done obscure Pro Conti team. (Maybe i'll buy the kit). Mind you, GVA is shyte.

    Laters.

    Mightily breezy here with a chill that wouldn't be out of place in the west of Scotland. Except I'm in Montpellier. Drinks later..

    wind has dropped so a much easier ride out, though a smidge slower back without the tailwind

    seems to have been a while since they cleaned up some of the roads, should you ever find yourself riding on deep picon at 55kph, i can advise that the correct thing to mutter as you gently ease back onto clean tarmac is "HOLY TITS"

    Holy tits Robin, that wind is still chilly and strong.

    Rice pudding after dinner. I'll add an extra amount of double cream and nutmeg.

    Went for a drive for the hell of it then walked the dog. Very satisfying, a bit like MOTD will be this evening :wink:

    No rain at Ae and only 2 midges - one of them didn't live to tell the tale.

    Hayden, are these some of the trees you've been shouting at?

    No - that's the difference between you and me.

    Are you calling me scum? I think you might be. :D

    I'm sitting here wantonly releasing carbon dioxide by burning logs. All the bloody heat goes up the chimney. The stove gets a bit warm, but not warm enough to heat the room. Bloody paleolithic technology.

    No, just someone has historically grappled with weight.

    Get yourself a decent log burner. We have had ours on for barely 2 hours and i'm on the verge of stripping down to my kaks.

    We can't get gold top here, so it's whole milk + double cream.
