    One of my riding buddies hasn’t been out over the Christmas period because of work and family commitments, so threw me a curve ball about going out New Years Day. Not going silly on the beer as been there done that, but will have a few. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Meeting at 09:15 for a local loop, fingers crossed it’s not leathering it down.

    So where you off to or is it a duvet day with a banging head?

    I hope to.
    Not a big fan of NYE partying, although I have enjoyed a couple of good nights at the pub last few days, so should have a clear head ! Not sure if the weather will mean a muddy forest cheeky trail session, or a more tame hack bike ride.
    Most of my riding buddies have done bugger all this break, one was snowboarding in Canada, so fair reason, apart from two of them riding once last week, everyone else has been proper bloody lethargic. Quite happy riding alone, but, come on guys MTFU and get out there. The old guy does.

    I will be, overnighted some bolts from france so that I could go to dalby tomorrow and teach these full sussers a thing or two with my cross bike, cant wait to be shaken to pieces! So stoked.

    Not going out tonight so might head for a quick local blast nice and early. My bike is too broken to go anywhere that needs functioning gears and brakes.

    Hell yes, need as much riding time before surgery so the recovery period will be faster.

    Heavy rain and 40mph winds could make it interesting though. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

    No, ridden the last 3 days, and its become a swamp down here. Ive been invited to a Post-Hogmanay Whisky party in the afternoon – much more appealing!

    Was the plan, but may need a canoe rather than a bike round here….

    Racing, it’s the Ripley Castle Cyclocross Race, looks like being a cracker, can’t wait. It’s nice it doesn’t count for a series so it’s a bit less pressured.

    Hoping to get out for an hour or so like I have done for the last couple of New Year’s Days. Just an easy local loop on mixed surfaces.

    Yes, a 20 miler planned. Quiet night tonight. Made an awesome curry, had a couple of beers, currently watching The Dark Knight Rises with a pint of water. Off to bed soon. Changed days…

    Very heavy rain due so, as a softie Southerner, the answer is not bloody likely. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I very fast 20 miles on road today – absolutely spanked it.
    30 miles tomorrow on road with my wife so probably average 16 mph ( hangover limiting ) check out some sights and enjoy the scenery.

    Forecast looks crap, so if I can find a low-level route I might, otherwise it’ll be an hour on the turbo (again ๐Ÿ™ )

    Looking out the window cursing the weather again. Then opting for an hour on the turbo or starting drinking again…
