    good night out in the lakes last night, so my pal wants a slower start, he drinks like a civilian.

    longer run today, then point the car south and see the family / landlord

    Morning ectoplasmes à roulettes

    Dreich indeed. Hoping it lightens a tad so I can go pedal.

    Netweather radar says it's not raining. I guess the clouds are so heavy that they have fallen down 'cos it's as damp as hell and drizzling the finest drizzle designed to penetrate even the thickest Tory skin.

    Bit of drizzle and showers this morning then the intrepid Womblebusters are out on another daytime raid. Will give the bike a quick clean and once over in the meantime. Cider may be involved later.

    Decided we will give the motorsport simulator thing another go soon, gave me a taste for track days again but a shed load cheaper.

    couple of hours riding in non-stop drizzle, met office et al. say it's not raining, it's still really wet, castelli aria shell was the correct choice

    chicken baguette imminent

    Mornink all. Soggy Park run for a change, the kid in me said go through the puddles. Had to be done. 😚 New phone hunting today plus try and pick a new wheel up for young oxo as his had an argument with a pothole and lost. He's not a happy bunny, told him he should have gone to specsavers as the pothole was that big. Enjoy your days all.

    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    "Here comes the rain again, Falling on my head like a memory "

    That's it for the day outside, heavy rain a-comin', again. At least got some fettling done around the growing pile of debris from the building work, timbers salvaged for firewood, kindling and the like.

    Guess it needs to be the trainer sesh, again. Exciting.
