    Offices far away, so hounds have had a long walk rather than a run today.

    Later is unplanned but I doubt it will be a loverly bike ride like last night

    Bad start to the day - Foggy and No. 1 bike had a flat tyre so had to take No. 2 bike to work (No. 2 in more ways than one). Got pretty damp while riding due to fogginess.

    Try to do some WFW and got to chaperone some important people around town at home time so might go in my cycling kit :smiley:

    Morning folks,
    Just tidying up the flat before going for a walk and having some lunch. Then heading to the airport unfortunately 🙁
    A little bit hazy here, not quite as warm as yesterday.

    A quick "there and back" ride this morning which was bloomin cold!

    Morning. WFW today. Cooler ride in than last week! By God it was dark at 6.30 this morning! I thought I'd set the clocks forward 2 hours instead of one.
    Very quiet at work today. Worryingly so. Might WFH tomorrow as it looks the same.


    Sometimes. Maybe. Possibly.

    Our ride also started at 6.30, it was just starting to lighten up so was quite happy with the timing.

    Soft pedalled 30 miles in a chilly but light wind.
    I'm f*cked.
    Damn recovery from lurgy.

    There comes a point where if you go too slowly, you make the ride far too long.

    Steak sandwich sounds delightful, I'm on some spiralized courgette with prawns and garlic :|

    MF has a house in both towns, so go with whichever - you'll have digs sorted.

    I used to live over Chepstow way during my yoof. Taking the mick out of the "Pongos" was the Saturday night entertainment.

    Sounds like some concoction to avoid the lurgy. No ones coming near you with that breath and arsewind.

    Me thinks one of the MF,s has to much time on his hands at the minute judging by some of the threads popping up. Not a mention of mancaves anywhere either.

    I mentioned it above Oxo. Just renamed it for accuracy :)

    Year end is a wonderful time for bean counters. 🤔😖. OH hates it as its year end as well for her place and she deals with it all.

    For a start, if the event actually starts in PP, you'll have a 2" ride before a 1.5mile hill that goes straight up.
    Plus, some despicable locals might like to put a spanner in your spokes for a laugh.
