Sunday, the best day always

00.11 and can't sleep. More kitchen "refresh" later and lazing in the sun.

    Hounds walked, little run cut short with dodgy tum. Now make subtle noises until I wake up the family so we can eat

    Morning All. Taking youngest to first football match since lockdown. Luckily only a friendly as only exercise both teams have done is fingers and mouths, typical 15yr olds I suspect. Taking OH out later and will be checking commute bike out ready for the morning, going back after 2wk chilling at Costa del ourgate. Currently cool dull and damp and definitely no sun yet.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Another hot one here, so will be running in the woods before it heats up too much. But coffee first. Hounds are currently crunching their way through raw chicken wings for brekkie. Think I'll make do with porridge.

    I don't mind this slight bending of the rules FVR but the thread title - boring and unambiguous.
    'Hotting'* up nicely here. So far temperature is exceeding the forecast. I'm off for a pedal.

    First come, first serve. Did l steal someone's thunder? Boring and unambiguous. Impressive for 0953, young glasshopper.

    Sungod's usually up first Freddie, but the daily thread golden rule is that you have to have gone to sleep before starting the thread, otherwise you're a dirty cheat. Pinno and the boys will be paying you a visit later.

    Ah, thanking you muchly for the explanation. Tea and crumpets on the lawn for pinno and the boys seems best.

    Pip, pip.

    Pinno might get the wrong idea about being offered crumpet :smile:

    Only problem with the title is it's a lie, Sunday is the worst because it signals the end of the wkend. Friday is the best day.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Afternoon folks, made it home in a little under 22 hours. Holiday was great, kipping in the car is not great. But we didn't interact with any plague ridden Frenchies that way. Don't think we need to quarantine anyway. Need to sort a few bits out this afternoon then catch up on kip.

    Crumpets of the flour based kind? Eegad. I'll bring some pastries.
    If you invite Sungod, he might bring Madelaine's and bubbly.

    Super dooper ride today. Perfect 23 degrees and just enough of a wind to glide home.
    Now stuffed after too many thick pancakes.

    Must fettle - think my rear caliper is fooked.

    Perfect winter day, still and sunny. Finished fettling new bike and out for test pootle in the afternoon. Needs some fine tuning, but otherwise very nice.

    Wot I have learned today. That you can run tubeless at low pressure.

    1st ever tubeless flat. Turned out was a leaking valve, by time I found that out I had spaffed (FatBo terminology there) my CO2. No worries. Minipump. Never used in anger. Fell to pieces. Xxxx it, I'm 25km from home. Could be an expensive taxi ride back, Sunday rates and all.

    Managed eventually to hold the pump plus the dodgy valve together enough to get some air into the tyre. Better luck it was the front. Can I nurse it back home this soft? Turned out I can. Resuit.

    Cold beers soon.

    Makes cornering interesting though.

    😊 I was very soft pedalling all the way back! Had got to c. 30C by then so gentle was good.

    'noon
    Couldn't sleep either so got up at stupid o clock and started walking the long distance path with the name that the forum censors out.
    Didn't get as far as I hoped but meant I could get a lift back instead of a 2 hour train ride.
    Forecast scorchio again today so slapped on the suncream and it was damp and misty the whole way.

    Wheelspinner's winter day looks much warmer and sunnier than a summer day over here

    Maybe WS does a bit of light off road duty on it, God forbid. Or he's just not a member of the 'Roadie snobs r us' club.

    At least one of the two given the background in his pic.

    Is the shocks to soften the blow when cycling drunk and bumping into Kangaroos?
