    Morning folks,
    What am I doing up at this hour on a Sunday? Quite warm after wobbling to the old dear's. Busy day of doing stuff lies ahead.

    Surprised I haven't seen Noah.

    Vuelta has finally come to life and we have another week of it.

    Guess everyone's still in bed.

    Rolled out of my pit early (ish) and been up the local mountain for some fresh air and to try and chat to some aussie on the radio but it didn't work. I was too early for the cafe when I got back down.

    Weather's pants here at the moment although it's forecast lots and lots of sunshine later. It had better turn nice because I've put a wash on.

    Up too early by my standards as couldn't get back to sleep for some reason. Currently chilling with coffee and will head out for some fresh air with the hounds later.

    They seem quite keen

    Morning all. Busy start earlier walking the Mutt. Bit of bike gear sorting out. Binned some old stuff that I'm wondering why I kept it and passed some other good stuff to a lad just starting to ride to work.
    Lazy man's Picnic for lunch with group of the lads taekwondo mates. Running later.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.
  • Very slow day. Late evening (for us OAP types... lol) out at dinner with old friends. Very fine restaurant for a change too, nice to do once in a while. Was Mr WS's birthday. Home at almost 2am. Ahem.

    Some garden work this morning, ripping out more weeds and overgrown shrubs in places they shouldn't be. Washed car as it was a bit grubby . Did coffee and lunch, visited Mum for a while, sold some spare doors, and rode a couple hundred laps in the shed on various bikes to compare fit and feel accurately. Think I've whittled down the decision to sell one of the Open MTB's, and maybe a roadie frame. Just need to figure out what component kit to sell them with too. But that'll be a job for next week after we're back.

    You can ride around your shed...

    Ride rided. 40 miles over hills with a warm southerly breeze. Perfect. Colnago behaved impeccably. Fuelled by coffee and custard doughnuts.

    Now beans, bangers and mash time.
    Vuelta later.

    Got bike back from repairs this afternoon so went for a spin and did a spot of climbing :o up the North Downs Ridge and Toys Hill to make up for the missed pedalling on Friday when it broke a few miles in. Legs tired now.

  • Yeah I've left a little clear circuit in the shed to roll around. Can do oval or figure 8 route, Scalextric-stylee. :smiley:

    Toyed with the idea of building a banking at one end for a mini-velodrome experience, but too much maths involved.

    Couple weeks ago there was a very nice trials bike for sale locally, nearly bought it to set up a skills course in the shed as well, learn to ride up over all the benches and stuff. It sold quick though.
