    I like the idea of a directed energy forcefield to enforce social distancing. Where can I get one? Will it work on cars too?

    Tired this morning, but going for a quick ride somewhere to make the most of the dry.

    Tired too, but actually had a good sleep

    Still can’t run so will play on bikes later

    Morning all, cool breezy and cloudy out. Family covid avoidance taxi run and ride out later. SG its called a cattle prod. Highly effective on uman beings. Failing that a tazer is effective. Personally I find shouting and throwing inanimate objects in all directions, 4lb lump hammers really effective.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    I Like this form of enforced distancing, I'm sure I could rustle up a 2 Farard cap on a pole. Just need to raid some chavs car for one first. Dual service to the community that.
    Anyway dull day today legs are highly dissatisfied with existence after doing just over 2500 feet of climbing on the gravel bike.
    I trekked over to a newish cycle cafe. Fet a bit out of place literally everyone was in club or local/national team kit on very expensive aero bikes an I turned up in a mish mash of kit on a grave bike. Meh coffee was alright, they'd ran out of cake by eleven somehow to made do with a tunnocks.

    Next door are having some random work done today which is very noisy so mainly avoiding phone calls using that as an excuse.

    This can be seen from many angles.

    Well...

    Yesterday was wet wet wet (but not a cocaine addict in sight).
    Today looks the same.
    Legs have atrophied. Might have to park the rollers in the garage and pootle away.

    Superleggera Cento 1 (ex Lampre team frame) went for £540.
    I didn't win that bid. Ho hum.

    It had probably done 20k and was riddled with hairline cracks. Yeah.

    Black black or black and yellow?

    An yeah use that as a reason not to have won it.

    Just watched the comedy of a skip being delivered on a steep incline, going to be more fun when its collected full of rubble.

    Black black.

    Though there's a Cento uno complete bike - just totalling up what I would get if split. Maths look good.

    If its another team edition with Athena it should work out well.

    I've lost two bids this weekend and the ride is out of action until I spend out. I blame pinno.

    You'll have to do better than that to be an honorary Yorkshireman. Or to buy something on the cheap from an honorary Sweaty.
