    Anyone fancy a cake, my treat?

    Hounds, breakfast with cards etc then on work stuff. Later is a run with speed work and then out for dinner
  • Moaning,

    WFW shortly, head wind :/ but dryish (dew and leaves on road) do what I have to do then hopefully tail wind home later this morning.

    Still no sign of a mince pie :(

    Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work work for me. At least it's dry. Another pants night's sleep; perhaps I should resort to excess red wine. Fettled leaf blower will be revving up a lot today I expect.

    Smurry. It's a good word. It sums the conditions up.
    Otherwise I would have to type 'there's a slight breeze, fog and drizzle' and that would be a waste of time, wouldn't it?

    Cake TLW? It is your birthday today?

    A CAAD... with Shimano on it?
    You see the bother you get yourself into when you are bored?

    Why tf are some Carnac shoes non SPD compatible?

    yeah, too right.

    want to do this to it wth my spare 9 speed Record - not having any of that Shitanoshit near it

    have spare rear Spunergy, so just means I have to pass front wheel between Dirk and this.

    Xmas cake gives me heart burn just looking at it and can only be consumed if totally immersed in cream.

  • Xmas cake is best enjoyed with a slice of Stilton an overly large comedy sized glass of port, in front of the log burner watching some skiing on the telly.

    Wouldn't it be better to have a couple of really good one's instead of a shed full of meh contraptions.
    I'll sell you Saronni red C40 frame* with serious bling and street cred if you give me the right money.

    Morning folks,
    My only day of wfh for this week so tried to have a little bit of a lie in, of course this means I was wide awake before the alarm went off. Been for my booster jab this morning, wobbled over so it would have only taken 10 minutes were it not for the requirement of twiddling your thumbs for 15 minutes afterwards. Pfizer jab now has a new name that I can't remember.
    Happy birthday TLW, you'll be glad to know I'm out tonight to celebrate for you. I won't be running and even if I was speed work would not be an apt description. I'll gladly take some cake though.

    Happy birthday tlw. You're cruising towards Hawaii now :)

    Still wfh while iffy leg get better (hopefully). Still getting some twinges when I get up and walk around so will have to go see a quack if doesn't sort itself. Onwards to more work type stuff and torturing numbers.

    S3, Prince, Peugeot Vitus thing and N1 are all perfect and ready to roll anytime.

    Dirk needs a front brake pad and rear tub taping on and he's finished.

    tbh, if you don't have at least one project on the go then what's the point?

    Yellow pedals.
    Yellow bung on stem.
    Yellow saddle.
    Yellow bar tape.
    Yellow frame.
    Yellow 'Spinergy'

    You need the TdF leaders kit a la Cipollini and then you'll look like a bleeding roaming duckling/Banana/Daffodil/custard tart.

    Hell, you could paint the plastic wheels yellow too.

    I wish it was just an excuse. This is going to stop me riding full stop if it carries on, so am going to try get a docs appointment so they can refer me to BUPA. Not sure how long that will take...
