    It’s my birthday on Saturday so one of two things. I will either be building a new bike up or at the solicitors filing for divorce. One or the other 😉


    This weekend is gonna be great, been looking forward to it since November last year, 3 mates and myself (Scienceofficer not coming) are flying out to Spain on Saturday morning for a whole week of dusty trail riding in Sierra Nevada……it’s gonna be mint!
    I’m not really excited much…honest 😛 8) 😆

    (Very) mini festival at the local with 10 bands playing on the Saturday. York with the Mrs Sunday night for a dirty romantic getaway


    Gotta do some work on a flat I’m selling. Which is dull but necessary. Will definitely be getting out n the road bike and mtb as well though. There’s only so much DIY a man can take.

    Got a day with Jedi followed by a night at my sisters as she lives nearby and I haven’t seen in ages.

    Looking forwards to all that I’m not bothered about the rest.

    Do the solicitor thing first then the house will be a lot quieter for the bike build.


    Friday will be a Llandegla+ ride, unsure if to dirve yet or ride there.

    Saturday is a late afternoon walk up Snowdon. Either Llanberis descent or the Rangers path descent. Hit the Rangers descent a few weeks ago so if the group decide it will be Llanberis I hope.

    Then Sunday early doors were hopefully making a trip to the Lakes to ride the Borrowdale Bash, or which ever relevent good trail there is near there. This is TBC a the moment.

    Failing that I need some miles in so it it fails really want to hit Worlds End again.

    Nothing planned but I am working Saturday as a favour for someone. Hopefully get some riding in and get my eldest out again, I’m off for a week come Friday anyway so plenty time.

    We have holidays here on the 1st (Labor Day) and Tuesday (Buddhas Birthday….yes) so going to Bali with 4 others to ride the trails there, including going down a volcano which should be fun.
    Will post some pics/video next week if I get time to take some.

    Off to Croyde to go surfing followed by lots of eating and drinking. I am contemplating selling my bike to fund a surfboard.

    Hob Nob

    3 days of riding, couple with the wife, and Sunday racing*.

    My only caveat is i’m not going racing if the weather looks nasty.


    Going to Ireland. We’ll still be there when the Giro starts 🙂


    400km audax on Saturday.
    Local from midday Sunday seeing how many of their 52 Belgian beers I can get through.
    Probably an off roader Monday or short road depends.


    Tour of the Black Country

    I don’t bother with many sportives, but since this one’s on my doorstep and a little different it seems well worth supporting…

    Since I’ll have the new bike finished by the weekend I’m planning on getting out on it at least once this weekend and I can’t bloody wait!

    Doing a CX ride Sunday from Ilkeston out across to pick up the Tissington Trail, up and back down the High Peak Trail, then home via Leawood pumping station which is in steam over the Bank Holiday. Should be 60-70 miles, depending if we divert to Aldi.

    Might take the kids to Sherwood Pines on Saturday if they are in the mood.


    Ohh I’ll play.

    Well I had chucked my Roadie in the van and driven that up here to that London to ride out with a couple of mates around the Essex flats taking in old Sailing haunts of the Blackwater (Burnham-o-C, West Mersea etc.) but both pulled out last night the gits 😕
    Sooooo, I’m off home again with Roadie and a smile and shall bounce the Downs once again till my teeny ass falls off. Now this may sound boring to many here, most know thats where I rideout, but hey it’s a bloody beautiful place 😀
    I shall also fit in a days riding on the CX but I need to plan a route out that can be a loop of about 60k’s or so.. Now having riden out in North Hants last weekend I may just fomulate a route plan over there, sort of Stockbridge way..
    Either way it’s gonna be amazeballz 😀 8)

    (I’m also riding out tomorrow night here in that London on the Roadie with a stop off at the Rapha shop for coffee on the way home 😀 )

    There is no doubt my life rox 😆

    I’m going here and I can have a scuba with the sharks.

    I will be jealous of people flying out to Spain on Saturday morning for a whole week of dusty trail riding in Sierra Nevada.

    Ridden there a couple of times, once for a whole week with Ride Sierra Nevada. Probably – definitely – the best riding trip I’ve ever had by far. Still daydream about it several years later

    hmmm – forecast is rain for bank holiday Thursday


    Will be in (sunny?) Somerset working on setting up a mass cycle ride from lots of places across Europe to Amsterdam, as part of a tech conference. DrupalCon in October will include a few more rosy-cheeked delegates than most years!

    Amazed at the number of people that have expressed interest in taking part. I believe there’s a whole group riding there from Geneva.



    Driving to Blanu from London on thursday – Friday morning CYB with the Mrs then down to Bala for afternoon. meet up with buddy and his mrs – we ride stiniog saturday – Go to electric mountain on Sun morning then push bikes up snowdon in afternoon with mrs, wave goodbye and ride down snowdon.

    CYB and then home monday !

    Sweet !


    Being a miserable sod and self employed I hate bank holidays!

    BSB at Oulton Park Monday. Me and Ms Engineer are going down on the Bonnie. I’ll bet she’s not looking forward to it quite as much as me …….


    picking up the wife’s sister and her daughters from the train station so they can come spend the weekend at ours…figuring out who will sleeping in the spare room with my bike collection…hoping the wife goes into labour and gives birth while we have someone to keep an eye on our 2 other kids…if the wife gives birth this weekend then i’ll be looking forward to a fortnight off from work and a couple of well deserved bike rides!!
