27th August 2017

I just couldn’t be arsed this morning, so I got up leisurely and went for a walk with wifey and the dog’s, stopping in town for a cooked breakfast 🙂

After tinkering for a few hours on ‘suff’, I checked the weather forecast, the forecast rain never happened, and BBC was suggesting dryness until 5pm, so I thought I would venture out on the Day One and head to Avebury, cross country and cycle over the ridgeway… I got as far as Calne before the rain started 🙁 The sky was dark and thunder/lightning was playing, it then started REALLY chucking it down, I decided to head straight home.

Just as I got home, it stopped raining and the sun cam out 🙁 but it was to late for me, I want heading back out!

25th August 2016

Worked from home today, the weather was not as nice as it could have been, the skies darkened and it threatened rain!

Paul called at 16:00 and asked if I fancied a virtual bike ride, so I hopped on the rollers and virtually road around Richmond..It was just like real life, with him not holding a constant speed anywhere!

23rd August 2016

I worked from home today…

Paul called me yesterday and said the Doctor had given him an all clear to start riding his bike again and he said he was going to go to the Castle Coombe track session tonight, so I though I would cycle over and do a few laps with him 🙂 he said he was going to be there at 5:30, so I set off from home at just before 5, arriving at just after 5:30….There was no sign of Paul…

I started doing a few laps at a reasonable pace and at 6pm I saw Paul and Nicky, they has done 2/3 of a lap, I slowed down and did a few slower laps with Paul, at 6:30 I did one quicker lap and headed home…

I had arranged a cycle ride with Simon and Gary, Simon texted me to say he was unwell, so it was down to Gary n me 🙂

We headed down to Cheddar and back, using my well proven route to Bristol, Long Ashton, Yatton and on to the strawberry Line to Cheddar, and back via the Sustrans route to Bath and back home, it was very windy out (I did my best to ignore it)

Worked from home today, I was very busy all day, when I could get out for a bike ride (5pm) I couldn’t be bothered!

18th August 2016

Worked in Warwick today…Took the folding bike and went for a lunchtime spin…

The Gods were against me…had to walk for a few hundred yards due to new road surface, it had just been put down and was still soft and above boiling point, and later on a bale of hay/straw was blocking the byway that I use (so had to walk around that as well…
