    Morning All. Steady family doing stuff type of day for a change, supposedly taking eldest for a short run later. May try a quick pedal out later if chance. Looking dry out even if a tad cool in the kingdom of Mercia.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.
  • Morning, wild windy and cold , have had bowl of porridge this morning just to keep the cold out, undecided about riding in this wind.
    Have a good weekend
  • Ning, kiddie winks fed and watered. Taking them to the library so they finally swap their books over.

    Few jobs and then into town for ale with friends

  • Library visit done, wife and daughter off to town, son playing roblox, I'm testing the uni virtualized workstations. Should have been ready weeks ago but only released for testing last night. Teaching starts Monday so they had better work.
  • Painting, pottering, ablution, then TENET. Not necessarily in that order.
    Not a Giro Hero!

    That N wind is a barsteward. Strong gusts and bleepin' cold too. Gravel bike shifting much smoother post its fettle in the week, actually quite a nice ride if ignore that wind. Got 60km left of womens' road race to watch. And that will be about that.

    Ps don't envy Cargobike's LEJOG with this wind, if indeed he is still going.

    You’re not kidding, it was bad enough yesterday (NW) I got blown to an almost halt by a gust, I was a little worried about where I was going, but luckily there were no cars passing me at that time. Stayed off the bike today, so far.

    If Cargobike’s got any sense he’ll be held up in nice warm hostelry

    Or building a fairing and windshield for his bike.

    Wind has dropped a bit here, but still yet to venture out beyond the garden.

    Evening folks,
    No slow start, lad dumped in Brum successfully now relaxing for a bit. Chuffin' cold out there.

    Riding to Brighton tomorrow. Howling northerly, so pedalling may be optional. I was idly thinking of riding back, but the thought of doing that into a block headwind is not appealing.

    Slowish day today, went to Kingston. V68, if you ever fancy some Vietnamese grub, then 36 Streets is lovely.

    Evening, declined a pedal today, rather sharp gusty winds, same tomorrow so cracked on with work in the garage, fair bit done two tip runs booked.
    Things re arranged, shelving and racking applied to flat brick surfaces.

    Prepped the gravel bike for winter as it'll be the go to so 700's back on an nice mudguards an summer stuff packed away for the other side of this winter.

    Now flake on the sofa with something alcoholic.

    Lucky lucky hb with the put up the sail N-S ride. I had planned to do a road ride tomorrow 'cos tarmac bar the potholes is fast. But did a short transition on road section today and fxxx it was well wobbly with the gusts. So unless conditions change vs the forecast think safer to be off road no cars gravelling again tomorrow. 'Kin wind.
