    Morning from a sunny east Yorkshire, blue sky's and shifting wind direction for the final 50mile leg of C2C. Suspect late breakfast as slap up meal and copious amounts of alcohol consumed last night, much staggering to rooms early this morning. On a high note raised fair bit of dosh for prostate cancer uk and had fun doing it. Remember folks its Friday wkend off for most plus a Bank Holiday wkend enjoy.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    I'm planning on going, you won't come last :mrgreen:
    You could always offer to marshall at the pub halfway along? It's the only course I've done where the marshalls are directing you with a pint in their other hand.

    Lazy start. Bike. Chiropractor session. Bike. Home. Potter. Wait for the bank holiday clouds to roll in. Plan.

    Locked out of systems after 3 tries following instructions. Not sure whose ineptitude has caused this. Not massively bothered, but have sent email to IT using work phone insinuating that it is definitely not my bumbling incompetence that has led to me having to sit in the hotel garden in the sunshine idly whilst watching the good burghers of Düsseldorf go about their business. :roll:

    I'll remember that trick if I ever get sent somewhere sunny again.

    Morning, stuffy head etc still this bug is a pest. drove in probably a good idea given my state of random dizzy spells its some what safer than a pedal.
    Colleagues are thankful I'm back solely because office weirdo isn't coming over to them all the time, I don't like him an I've made it clear many times so it works. Likely me describing to him ways I could kill him in the office worked a treat.

    Anyway onward to doing sod all today, may play some F1 sim stuff for research purposes.


    Hoppy, leave the laptop in the sun for a while so it heats up (with it turned on) itll go into thermal shutdown mode over an over ;)

    Morning, just been threatened with being sued and losing my job by someone, I thought today would be less stressful! :shock:

    Might sneak off early and go for a pint to celebrate my big win yesterday
  • pinnopinno Posts: 42,737
    Nice one Hoppy.
    That's a bit long drawn out Step; just chuck the frikkin thing in the pool/use it as a beer mat/piddle on it/get some drunk Bergher to sit on the thing/bounce it off the balcony.

    Whats the current fad with plaques stating that gin is good? "If at fist you don't succeed, try try a gin" is one that MNrs HD stuck on the kitchen wall.

    Well I tried, and tried, and tried again... And now my head hurts.

    Major task of the day is to pursuance the above MrsHD that a stages power meter is a necessity!

    Well done Oxo, link to fundraising page?

    Relatively relaxed day in the office, the minions are running on their hamster wheels with minimal intervention so I'm reviewing some stuff in between making up the calorie deficit from pedalling. Tonight's ride home should be nice and warm for a change and the long weekend is getting close so for some reason I feel the need to burn some super unleaded tomorrow :)

    I was wondering about that too. Although he did mention old people that are as immobile as trees but answer back.

    Politics. I win, made many monies and look very diligent, whilst also exposing a few mistakes, backstabbing and lies. Yay for me

    Wahey. Completed C2C. Now stuck in fuxxing traffic heading home after a beer or 2 and fish and chips in Bridlington. Ended up being a cracking ride with plenty of beer and good scenery. Would recommend Morcambe to Bridlington as a first C2C ride. 2 hard days followed by 2 easy ones. Looking forward to a bath and more beer.

    Yep. Well done oxo.

    I'm hanging around waiting for the highlights of the skinny men riding up hills.

    Dog and daughter were pleased by my return at least.
