Last night run was followed by an unexpected text saying want to go cycling, so good time was had on the fun bike followed by the pub

Today is working relatively close to home and a chilled night

    You beat me to it by a minute...

    Back in work today after a few days off.
    Avoided the ice rink death trap of a cycle path today so no new bruises.
    Lots of emails, but most are the sort that don't require any work for me which is good.

    Hopefully the sunshine sticks around for later :D

    Hope there is no ice tomorrow as cycling to Chester for the first time in ages

    Where's all this fog everyone's talking about? Nothing around here, just glorious sunshine.

    TLW it's not ice ice, just a path with a zero coefficient of friction.
    I don't think it's on your route anyway so you've just got the mud, potholes and permanent puddles to watch out for :D

    Morning All. Last night's beers still clouding my judgment so have stupidly agreed to usual nightride but with a couple of highly competitive mates tonight. I suspect they will be taking advantage of my fragile state. No fog here, not that I've ventured far. Dog walked just need to put my lights on the MTB for a change.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

  • Decided to squeeze in a training ride before work this morning. Pretty thick fog out on the Ridge near Westerham and also at the top of Star Hill. It's supposed to get worse this evening and tomorrow.

    Afternoon wage slaves,

    In chilly Prague. Just stuffed my face then onto an afternoon of people droning on about tax so I'll have a nap. Czech beer and wine tasting session starts at at 6.15 mmm...

    If only. I'm actually off to sit in a car park right now.

    And this one looks really censored as well - both where I have to go and the car park.

    ...or it's part of an elaborate plot to kidnap him.

    For his sake, I hope the ransom is less than a tenner.

    i suppose if its between a nner and twenty they could have a whip around. Anything more than twenty even i realise that i'm not worth it .....

    One of the roads I go down near Welshampton is so bad I’m worried for my cross bike wheels never mind the masters

    Done the chartered institute of taxation quiz. Won it. Prize turned out to be a magnum of champagne per team member. Not the best of houses, but I'm sure it'll be a great drink with a couple of years in the cold and dark, and not to be sneezed at.
