    Slow start, gentle run then race the wife on her Yorkshire bike.

    Then assume pub

    Moaning,

    Clear n bright this morning after last night’s deluge

    My gear is still drying out. Did my first little road ride to local country pub after work, boy was that hard, cross/head wind as well as the hills. I earned my pint. I need to get some road miles under my belt that’s for sure.

    Today was going to be an allotment day but that’s cancelled due to waterlogging. I might will go out later and have beers seeing as it's Good Friday :)

    Happy Easter Weekend everyone

    Morning
    Glorious here. Not sure what the plan is for the day as the missus mentioned decorating. I might have to feign some sort of injury.

    Ditto, glorious here too. Bit of brekkie then drive down towards the coast to see parents and meet up with sister. Forgot it was Good Friday so hopefully traffic isn’t a nightmare.

    Not been up too long :) Hound walk, haircut, supermarket trip and a couple of jobs are on the cards. Looks nice 'n' sunny out but rode yesterday and got a long outing Sunday so best rest the legs for now; a bit of Panzercise might be needed.

    Sunny down 'ere too. Heading into Minehead for lunch in a bit, then a walk on the moor with the dog this afternoon.

    True, but he's fallen over so hard he's taken the road with him.

    Not bad going ^ though as a percentage, that's only 35%(?) wobble*.

    I did not infer that there was anything wrong with wobbling.

    My last year at Uni was long hours of beer, course work and that damn infernal dissertation.
    I wobbled off on 6 occasions: 5 times inebriated and 1 time sober. The only time I hurt myself was when I hadn't been drinking. I concluded that alcohol fueled wobbling is far safer than when sober.

    Walked there which is only a little wobbly now. 600 steps there and 1800 back, the difference is staggering
