    Morning, much sogginess here with a stronger wind, both the dog and myself are wet through, not sure if I will be cycling today,
    Have a good day

    Morning. A tad damp from overnight moisture, but currently drying out. Young oxo finally gets a game, all recent ones have been cancelled. May nip out for a blast on the bike later after new PC thing is set up.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Relaxing morning, but that's mainly because Stressbag and Stropteen are out and the hounds are snoozing. Will take them out soon to the woods/park/decommissioned golf course.

    Then maybe some weights.

    Very windy and damp for this mornings TT.

    Day currently undecided, but a 3am finish may have killed the wife, so could be a lazy day

    You're far to old for that.

    Toots swam, logburner prepped, lunch to make, jobs to do...

    It's breezy but sunny and... dry!

    Afternoon, very windy out very hard ride and a fun puncture. Turns out I didn't have any tyre levers, turns out a through axle lever is a great tyre lever!
    Anyway home coffee and tyre lever hunting to commence.

    Definitely a tad breezy, lads team thrashed the opposition from a higher league. OOPS. Would have been worse for them had our team been awake and fit. New PC nearly sorted, lots of passwords changed as couldn't remember them. A lot faster than old one, but hated being spoken to by a pc arghh.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    1. Nope, council is planting some trees, has put a few footpaths in, recreated the lake that used to be there decades ago and created some wetlands. And put in a good little cafe by refurbing an old stable block. Golf is boring so big improvement.

    2. Nope again :)

    Oh come on; half of Engerland is 'wetland'.

    Not where we are, so it's a nice change. The dogs seem to like it as well.

    That's brilliant, if only they'd do that with more golf courses. Unfortunately I suspect HD's prediction is more likely so that's the only thing that excuses golfists and their silly trousers.

    That was the last municipal golf course in Greater London, so there's none left our corner of the world. Great place for the hounds to run and muck about.

    When I was a student many moons ago, there was an old golf course and I used it to practice my censored mountain bike skills on a rigid Marin pine mountain :)

    I dodged the odd golf ball on a bike.
