    Maybe too many Apple based products last night 😂 today is walk hounds, quick run, then long drive to pick up the TT bike I’ve bought. Few jobs then repeat cider mistake

    Looks like a nice day again, albeit a bit breezy.
    No plans, as usual these days. Really should go out for a bike ride.

    Local health minister has apparently been arbitrarily making up exercising limits for cyclists just after BC etc. Got them removed.

    Morning All. Currently contemplating social distance shopping. Wishing I could do parkrun etc, maybe run later, trying to keep enthusiastic about doing a couple of half marathons and a full one later in the year. May or may not go ahead. Eldest lads just been told his plant has another month off, fingers crossed for him. Will attempt to ride later once 40mph winds pass.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    You bought a TT bike just to get a long drive? Sneaky.

    Windy and wet and grey here.

    It's the morning so maybe it was teabag related?

    Morning peeps, good lie in, popped down to post office via an indirect route to post downhill gear to a mates son who might actually use it, scoffed porridge, now just waiting for Stropteen to emerge from her pit so we can take the dogs out to that thar countryside.

    May wash the car later, getting dusty again.

    I wish.
    Went for a bike ride and still seem to keep temporarily losing one while riding even though I've dropped the saddle :neutral:

    Ay up!
    Been windsurfing this morning, using the fine spring weather to the best of my advantages. Some local curtain twitcher must have called the police as I was aware of two officers waving at me as I enjoyed my sail, I think trying to get my attention. After half an hour they buggered off.
    No riding today, I'm knackered already.

    They were trying to tell you about the shark.

    Chilly morning. Had to wear long pants out on the walk with dog.

    Faffed in shed a while converting some wheels to tubeless. 3 out of 4 seem fine, one may have a tiny leak still. Grrrr.

    Fried pig based lunch.

    Went riding, as the breeze had dropped and looked fine. Got down the road about 10km to find it wasn't. Fine, that is. Home to catch up on the ride on the turbo instead. Yawn.

    Rear wheel drive and going across the Peak District - perfect

    5 hrs and the older rugrat spent circa 10 mins on his phone and we talked the rest - days don’t get better than that (Will never happen again)!

    3kmsq lake and only 2 of us on it.
    Social distancing was never going to be an issue.
    Love the idea of the shark though Pinno :D

    Yeah you have to forgive Oxo - he had CO poisoning and lost his sense of humour.
