    as is tradition on a Bank Holiday, instead of going on the ride I had planned, I sat in A&E all morning with my 1-year-old son who’d managed to dislocate his elbow.

    Went for a short but fun mtb ride in the Peak District with my other half. We had a few goes at The Beast at Hope Cross, as my aim is to be able to ride the whole thing on my hard tail. Just need a bit more practise. After 4 attempts at one hard bit under the stern eye of my OH, I cleared it and whooped like a monkey! Could’ve stayed all day but didn’t have time. Spent the afternoon gardening with my 8 year old son, making the most of him wanting to help!

    20 odd miles around Cannock, washed the car, did some paperwork, bought some ice cream now sitting down relaxing, contemplating the week ahead, mindful it’s short week 😀

    Watched England vs New Zealand under 18’s schoolboy international

    1-1

    the ground is about 50 yards from where i live 😀

    56 miles on the road bike today….and I’ve now got some shit tan lines! I’ve officially got a roadie tan! Enjoyed it though, the roads round here were pretty quiet which was nice.

    I was going to go out on the MTB but decided that most of the places I ride would be heaving. I also need/want to get fitter so thought a descent (by my standards) rude in the road bike would be beneficial.

    Down to Brighouse, quick blast on the towpath to Sowerby Bridge and back (big ring and hammered it) and then home.

    A 30 mile local loop in the Scottish Borders on the MTB this afternoon, warm enough for short sleeves. 🙂

    Nice 30 odd miles on a mountain bike in the hills. A bit tricky at first because I’ve not ridden one for a while but got the feel of it quickly. Lovely day for it.

    Five-mile morning walk with the dugs on the Hamstead estate near Newtown Creek on the Isle of Wight, in an atmospheric sea mist which the sun burned away while I was out. A truly lovely part of the world. Strangely harmonious musical accompaniment provided by ships sounding foghorns of various pitch out in the Solent.

    Working since I got back though. 😥

    Revised whilst being forced to listen to my Chavy neighbours shite taste in music, then I did the gardening with my lady whilst being forced to listen to my chavy neighbours shite taste in music. I then had a massive bonfire which was fun.

    Left the house (coastal West Dorset) at 6am, spent two hours riding in thick fog before the sun broke through near Blagdon Hill, had a tool around the Quantocks before riding home. 91 miles door to door, bit toasted but had a great time. They have dust on the Quantocks, real crumbly dust! So not quite a coast to coast (& back) but not far off.

    I had the most fun on the way to and back from a ride. Mx5 is definitely a bike car. Infinite loading bay.

    Ride was not bad – did the croft trail in Swindon for the first time. I’m impressed with what they have, wish I had something like that a bit closer!
