    Morning, dry out for a change. Meeting mate at local trail centre seeing as he's come out the closet and started mountain biking.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Morning

    Doesn't seem that warm here yet, which made the ride to the office nice.

    Looks like it will be a nice day for messing about on MTBs oxoman.

    Contemplating doing the TT tonight local to work, but think I need to save myself for the Friday one.

    Up and out early to get bloods tested, now back for coffee, more coffee and breakfast. Then get fettled and out for a decent ride, weather looks like will be really pleasant, sunny and not too hot today.

    Morning, rather windy but its not raining so theres a plus, perhaps summer is coming (one day only Saturday special).
    Coffee, office stuff, home and sample some wine.

    Stiff north easterly here, making the ride in hard work, despite the bright sunshine.

    Worky worky, bail early to collect mini.

    Stunning clear blue skies and only the faintest of breezes.
    Met with architect to discuss planning/warrant/design for a proper Porker tinkering shed and man cave above. Quite excited really.

    Can't shake this summer man flu head cold tonsillitis sinus headache. Any ideas?

    Laters.

    Pinno, usually I do a hot bowl an towel trick, or just a good long shower get lots of steam going, sauna if you can cook it out an open up the airways at the same time.

    It'll probably be a sauna for me. Ironic on what is the best day we've had this year.

    Wait till Saturday, meant to be getting to a toasty 30/31c before nose diving back to the low 20s the next day.
    I've meant to be demolishing the old shed base that day, 10X8 of cemented down slabs that have all gone wonky some how. I'm renting a jackhammer for it now!

    I used the joke of inviting a friend round to make some hardcore a few times so far...

    We'll assume that 'Porker' refers to the car :)

    Busy, busy as its my Friday today and they're trying to finalise a big deal today. I may end up having conversations during the long slog North tonight. In good news, the house went on the market yesterday and there are 3 viewings lined up already. I'll have to make myself scarce tomorrow afternoon so as not to get in the way.

    hb was right about the stiff north easterly. Cracking ride on a Thursday morning, headwind out but with astute route planning, nice assist on the way home.

    Only slight issue was realising 20km from home nope that pee break is becoming necessary and once the body acknowledges that then it becomes mandatory. Have a usual secluded spot before it all opens up and gets busier. Just as slowing to pull over, a police car appears and stops in 'my' place. Decided politic not to stop, walk past them behind the hedge and evacuate, carry on a bit, bound to be be somewhere... Couple minutes later same police car comes past me, he/she/they def on a pee break as well.

    All ended well though, in case you were wondering...

    I wouldn't want make it look too glam. Maybe some stills from 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' or 'The Hills Have Eyes?

    Was planning Friday, but got a horrible feeling a meeting is going to muck it up
  • oxomanoxoman Posts: 9,723
    Well what an eventful ride that was, discovered the hard way I need a new chainset. Not nice pulling off under load and the chain skipping, ballcocks now a funny colour and stinging a bit. OH has commented that don't worry you don't need them anymore. Question is do I just replace like for like or go 1x. Decisions decisions.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Both at the minute, just a tad tender.

    Oh come on, what exactly did you do/happened?

    There's no street cred in saying that you're a bit tender.

    Chain slipped on worn chainring as pulling off. Ended up with something either side the topbar and to add insult to injury I was clipped in and fell off in front of my mates.

    10/10

    Though, I would need pics to rate the artistic merit.

    No need for pics, I think you've already given us some unpleasant mental images oxo.
