    Cold out there and not too warm in the house either, should really put the heating on

    Overdid the winter clobber this morning so slightly sweaty ride in. Coffee followed by work avoidance.

    I can see a bit of snow on the hills but it's just rain and sleet here. Work from cave this morning then headed into town where a free dinner awaits.

    Morning. WFW. Should have ridden in but took the car instead. Motivation to ride is low, unlike my waistline which seems to be rising. B*gger.


    Sometimes. Maybe. Possibly.

    Very pretty outside, sun shining blue sky no wind and snow on the tops of big hills away in the distance. More seasonal garden jungle hack back to come.

    Found a flat when I opened the bike shed, fixed the flat, found the offending sliver of glass, so uneventful ride into a chilly headwind. Buff for a "hat" and my thick winter gloves. My bike is shamefully filthy, I'm surprised it still works.

    Don’t clean it! Probably all the crud holding it together. Last time I cleaned my bike it cost me £100 for a new derailleur

    Afternoon folks,
    Cold and wet out there this morning, thankfully I knocked it back a notch from full winter kit and didn't get too hot. Also came across some flooded stretches of road and path. Now suffering a busy day in the orifice, I think I'm being too nice to people. I say people, I mean idiots. Reading the rim depth thread Ugo has a point about the old guys that were rude but helpful. The old guys that started the company were like that, if you asked a question without thinking and trying to get the answer yourself first you'd come in for some hefty abuse. If you'd thought about it and had a go they were very helpful. Now they've retired and those of us that have been here for a while aren't rude enough, the youngsters aren't learning anything because it's easier to ask one of us. I'll have to smite the next one that asks a silly question.
    B³ and I could have a filthy bike competition, reckon I could win that.

    Good advice - will leave until April.

    Mbbbrrr!

    Is that the muffled sound of a bike covered in dirt screaming?

    Full of free food 'n' wine having paid the price of listening to an hour long presentation on international tax developments. Should sleep well tonight.

    Surely you would have slept without the wine? Wouldn't you?!

    It was more about the hour long presentation.
