The "I can't ride on the best weekend of the year so far" sympathy thread
Likewise: I got up early today, all ready to load the car up and go, but then my cough and sorethroat returned and started to feel shit again and decided it would probably do me more good to rest.
It is soo frustrating, especially as it seems to take me sooo long to get over these damn colds (this one has been two weeks now). A 50 year old woman in my office had a cold and was over it in a day or two: Me? I get it for a few weeks.Posted 7 years agotrailofdestructionMember
Big time sulk here. At work in front of a computer, looking at the sun out the window. Was supposed to be out last night and couldn't make that, can't do tomorrow either. Oh, and next weekend I've got to go to a bloody wedding. 😡
On the positive side, got out last weekend which was ace, and just spent a small fortune at CRC. There goes the overtime.Posted 7 years agoSandwichSubscriber
Road riding only this weekend. Broken XC bikes from riding to work one dead Cannondale with a oil leak on the lefty, one dead Orange mech hanger broke and XTR mech turned to surreal art. Awaiting pay to effect repairs, so next weekend I may not get to ride off-road either.Posted 7 years agoDancakeMember
Little dude and I are having fun while Birthday girl gets pampered today.
Did a 7.00am start ride yesterday though. It was probably the best ride I have ever had! I was fast, the bike was ace, the conditions excellent…I even did a log drop-off that I havnt had the guts for before. resultPosted 7 years agoprojectMember
Went out today, drove 12 miles, and realised forgot money and wallet, so drive back,found i had left front door open.
Set out again, stopped to drop mate off at antique fair,fell off pavement and riped palm open (grazed) other palm large bruise,hit knee on floor, turned round and drove home to get claeaned up, fell asleep and then woken up to sound of cat being sick on leather settee.
Knee seizing up,both palms hurting,sweling starting on knee and palms, and cat sleeping as if nothing was wrong.Posted 7 years agowarpcowMember
Sulky and a bit surly too. Was planning to have a nice long ride today and 1km in one of those silly, straight-pull, spoke flange things that Mavic hubs have came pinging off. As in the whole bloody thing: two spokes flapping around in the wind (and the disc, took a chunk out of that too when one of them wrapped in the frame). Considering it was only six months old (and spent a lot of time indoors over winter) I was slightly peeved, to say the least 👿Posted 7 years ago
