    Morning. Big breakfast awaits followed by pedalling and lots of cafe stops with cake. Hopefully wont get lost. Enjoy work you reprobates.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Culmination of months of petty work politics today, should have stopped off for popcorn on the way here. It's sad that my job has essentially now become arguing with pensioners.

    To top it off, the OH woke me up this morning by shouting at me for 5 minutes, it turns out I'd annoyed her in her dream. Now I'm late and in a bad mood. Luckily I'm riding again tonight so everyone can just f*ck off.

    Morning

    Short, chilly ride to the office this morning. Brakes seem better this morning after some fettling last night. I think I'll give this evening's TT a miss as the start time has been put back until quite late and don't fancy hanging around in a car park for 90 mins this evening.
    Seems someone's gone on paternity leave and told everyone I'll be going to his meetings this week even though I don't know what's he's been working on :roll:

    They are just about as stubborn. Unfortunately one shouts back.

    Feeling chipper today after two bike rides yesterday. The disappointing part is that it was the same route on both occasions, the cheery up bit was Aspull on the second.

    Today bring a mass of AutoCAD and some shuffling of paper.

    Morning from sunny Madrid :)

    Just done the dry run of my presentation and am now pretending to listen to other peoples practice runs. Beats working I suppose.

    Hotel is a bit censored but were off to a nice restaurant in town tonight where there will be plenty of good food and plonko Espanol.

    if they would just allow us to pay illegal immigrants/asylum seekers to do work @ say 50p per hour.

    Why does Oxo need luck? 105km (66 miles) on day 1. 120km (75 miles) on day 2. With support.
    At milemuncher pace, day 1 @ 10 mph, 6.5 hour ride. Add 30 mins snooze, food and piddle, 7 hours.

    Today will be mowstly tying up loose ends and insulting people on BR as I have a meeting in Dumfries tomorrow.

    Rubber necking Madrileñas... totally envious.

    Insults aside, does anyone know of any womans road shoes (spd-sl), around £50-£80 that don't look like road shoes?

    Morning, still full of grot so avoided work, day of loafing planned on the patio with the doge an a laptop. Need a new kit bag as well turns out mine must have proven interesting to the aforementioned doge. Strange she never does that kind of thing.

    Anyway may stare at my keyring an watch some tritium decay, I have a nice coffee to drink which is a shame as I cant taste sod all with this cold, an some music to listen to.

    Those aren’t words, “does her idea cube” however is made up of words so TLW and the MFs have a point.
    #PINNOFAIL would also not work as it implies pins don’t fail. #Piñaisdaft does work however, this teaches us that Pinno is no good for hashtags.

    Survived day one of C2C Morcambe to Bridlington via a few detours. Ribblehead today. No I don't ride a cube. Currently on my Moda wet come touring bike, apparently I'm cheating because it's a triple. Still not used my granny gear or walked. Currently getting pixxed
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    so jealous - Madrid rocks. not sure where is nicest though - Barca or Madrid. Either are lovely but obviously so very different.

    have a vino tinto for us.

    as an aside, drinking rose Pinot Grigio in the sun here - in the bargain bucket at Edwyn's so I thought wors comes to the worse its an end of evening bottle - actually really nice but you can't go wrong with P/G - you know what you're getting tbh.
