    Sub zero out there, frosty out there. Good news: it's thankfully not the unelected bureaucrat brexshiter.

    Work group day, wrap up warm, have a picnic in the woods, more arboretum fun.

    On the train into The Big Smoke, that chilly walk to the station definitely woke me up. Will get back on the bike this weekend and start getting a bit of fitness back, honest.

    Not too bad out all things considered.

    Work stuff and then finally try out the rebuilt singlespeed

    Then pub

    One and a half commutes of epic proportions (forgot my bag and had to go back) including a triple full kit roadie overtake as they were overtaking a civilian cyclist, so actually a quadruple overtake. Me with my marathon plus and half mudguards. I’ll have to get a go pro at this rate. Two of the roadies were girls but if you mess with the bull you get the horns.

    In other news, cold tootsies.

    It is, spent more on it than it cost, but it’s the bike I did Paris roubaix on so it’s staying

    Morning!

    Will be living in Brighton for 3.5weeks. Getting a bit fed up of the nomadic lifestyle now…

    Also, did I miss it? Do we know where Hoppy, LincolnDave et Al have got to?

    Hop, Hissy fit, whereabouts known but he’s not coming out of his room until that nasty Stevo has gone. Lincoln Dave, retired, probably bored of posting the same post every day.

    Im sure you’ve probably mentioned it before but why all the travelling? Brighton, could be worse 👍

    Sooooo bored.

    Oh sorry, I meant to tell you yesterday that you need to hide your phone down that back of the sofa, really wedge it down there or they’ll keep bugging you. You don’t have to isolate if jabbed but they nag you for a pcr test.

    As long as they're both okay!

    We're having our new flat gutted and refurbished. So far spent time in Germany, West Yorkshire (current location) and then probably Brighton. I've never been to Brighton (I know!) so that's something to explore, and it means we're closer to London for the building work vinegar strokes (not used that term in a while!).

    afaik if you are fully vaccinated you don't need to self isolate, but get a test and be careful until shown negative

    I farm work out now. All I do is lubricate the cogs which boils down to emails and getting A to talk to B.

    Never been to Brighton! Does not compute…system error….system error…. Rebooting….

    Ok back on line. Let’s try again, as mentioned the lanes are good for a mooch a about. Fish and chips, Harry Ramsden’s opposite the pier. TheWitchez restaurant marine parade is excellent, cozy, good food, nice atmosphere might need to book. Check out the Komedia club for entertainment.

    You know where Hoppy lives Seano.
    Walk up and down the street outside holding a placard/wearing a sandwich board.

    If you can't get his attention, kick the Volvo tank people carrier thingy and set the alarm off.
