    Morning, mutt walking followed possibly by a long ride out and definitely no work. Looking a tad cloudy out there. Currently listening to all the educated Tracey,s and shaz,s taking their offspring to school. God why can't we have a selection test that failure means being euthanized or banished to the colonies.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Morning, damp an a bit chilly out, drove in on account of some grot I've incurred for working in the office. May attempt an early bail I have bars to wrap, it'll take me about a dozen tries to get it right so thats my reasoning.

    Unsure whats occuring bar that probably some whinging from people here.

    Can't believe people still living in the past, like yesterday. Skinsuits and shaving urghh, they should embrace their inner man.

    Oxo, you really should post that in Cake Stop and start a high brow debate :)

    Coffee and work etc...got a few meetings which is unusual for a Friday but WTF. Bonus is in the bag so it doesn't matter too much if I screw up.

    She can sleep while you go to the pub and have a better go at getting rid of that Man Flu.

    Cloudy here.
    Off to sticks... you know the rest.

    Laters.

    Morning
    No skinsuits here today, it's wet and I'm tired so the bike's stayed at home.
    Calm before the storm in office at the moment.

    Afternoon folks,
    Another busy day in here, have to slope off early as the Mrs is away for the weekend. Tempted to just do stuff for myself, but will try and do something with the female child before the lad is back for the summer next weekend. I'll try to make sure the garage door is secure if all of the MF's are coming over to cheer on team H³ in the TT next month. Wouldn't want one of them to get lost in there again. Reminds me as I was putting the bike away last night a young girl looked in as she walked by with her mother and said "Wow! A garage just for bikes". Made me chuckle.
    Got schooled by a chap on a rather fancy S Works last night, he came past me as I was dawdling through the park. At least 10 years older than me and keeping a reasonable pace. He moaned about the headwind and said he hoped it would be easier today as he's riding to Coventry. Found him on Strava, he averages over 700 miles a week! He didn't have shaved legs or a skin suit.

    We had the company benefits person in yesterday and she said that you don't get automatically signed up for a new cycle to work each year because "who wants a garage full of bikes" :shock: :roll:

    No, pretty sure it's not him. This guy:

    He was doing a reasonable pace, I was definitely pootling. To maintain that pace for 100 miles is good going.
  • step83step83 Posts: 4,107
    Nope, Mr Abraham is rocking a Raleigh still I think. plus that guy has more hair than him.
