    wife's away (all weekend) dairn sairff and I'm looking after the offspring – managed an hour with them in the bike trailer yesterday but it's getting a bit small for them both now and it was a bit cramped/hot/uncomfortable so I had to knock it on the head 😥

    I'm lazy…and recovering from t'other halfs grad ball last night.

    Will be heading out a bit later though, and I've got the day off work tomorrow so will be out for a longer ride then.

    already got 2 and a half hours in and cleaned the bike, fear of sunburn has now brought me indoors, riding in this weather is, as you'd imagine, quite hot.

    Broken Pelvis. I have a sick note and everything.

    ****' cold is producing a lot of green snot so prudence dictates that Aberfoyle SXC is not a good idea.

    May go for a tour of the neighbourhood later, though it's about to start pishing down here…

    I'm in work!

    Would normally go out for a ride later on this evening, but have managed to give myself a rather nasty groin strain while training for a marathon next month.

    unless I were intending to go jumping I'd ride with up to 4 broken spokes 🙂

    So what's your excuse for being sat at home reading STW, and out on your bike on such an awesome day?

    I've got to build a wardrobe, from scratch, not one of those flat pack ones! And broken hand still needs a couple more weeks to fully heal. Really wish I was out on my bike! 🙁

    Wife indoors writing essay on history of midwiffery. Me under gazebo, just about to get in paddling pool with kids. 🙂
    Cant complain though, rode MachX Fri night & Tarw at CyB yesterday. Might try sneak a lap of the Monkey when cools down before dark.

    Been out this morning for a road ride, just cooking a chicken for a nice salad and then I'll head back on, possibly for a bit of mountain biking.

    Recovering from viral induced Pericarditis and Myocarditis, banned from riding for 4 weeks. 🙄

    Still, grateful it didn't kill me and all that…

    My front forks are leaking air faster than I can pump it in, my mates bike has stuck pistons so when I rode it the front brake jammed on, the back brake is now doing the same – Im doomed. Perhaps I should drink beer for the rest of the day.

    I'm in Ethiopia, and its election day, and we have been advised to stay indoors on safety grounds.

    Which is a shame as I finally have my bike, and I built it this morning!

    and my daily bike…

    Excuse my very Ethiopian saddle cover…

    :o)
