sunday ou sont les scorchios d'antan

'ning

assemble shiny bike, brave near-freezing temperature to reach cafe, test ride if not raining, perhaps a restorative nip of the king's ginger
my bike - faster than god's and twice as shiny

    Still a bit damp here, the sunshine that's forecast hasn't arrived yet.
    Planning on going up a hill when the washing's done.

    The sun is shining! 😎 Awake and 100% pure Colombianing early, for me. Might even get out early, for me, get a decent ride in and get back for live lumpy Vuelta.

    Traditional lie in had, now ready for some Sunday sorting. Apparently the hounds are going to some sort of agility class, which is a bit pointless as they're already pretty bloody agile.

    Morning folks,
    Traditional slow start was enjoyed, just been to the shop for some bread and pastries. Watched some poor sod have a clipless moment at the zebra crossing outside as I left, only about 30 people to witness his embarrassment. A bit of bike fettling to be done, I might clean the filthy bike as it looks shameful at the moment. New handlebars on the shopping hack have made it more comfortable and should be faster.
    Sorry about the weather sg, it's been like this since you left.

    Ride rided. Did a loop around the city, including some of the shall I say less salubrious parts. All good and found some back road bike routes wasn't aware of. Downside is again seeing the amount of rubbish mucky scrotes just dump wherever and whenever; high % of fast food branded debris of course.

    Back in time for the last lumpy 70km of stage 9.

    That's pleased Shorty.

    I am so glad the Vuelta and the Giro have limited sprint opportunities. Back to bumpy stuff today.

    Great pedal.

    Did some editing.

    Hill hilled, or whatever you do with them.

    Didn't really brighten up until I got back home, but it was dry and there was nobody about so that's a win.

    Veronese is probably hoping it's got wipe-clean upholstery :D
