Not f in likely
(Jumping in before Magnatom)
Ya big jessie !!!
It was a thrilling ride home tonight from work. Fantastic fun, though there was no snowstorm, just sleet / hail; I was bloody disappointed. I've still never ridden through a snowfall
well I was seriously considering it after my long detour home this morning via stirling after my nightshift however that bridge tonight will be well dodgy and I hate the train
Yeah that ride was thrilling but I wouldn't fancy that bridge. What I do when it to blowy is to cycle to Dalmeny, take the train to Inverkiething and then cycle to Dunfermline. When I used to do this as a commute it was quite good as it lets the rush clear and I only once had to buy a ticket
it was on the radio that the firth road bridge was only open to cars today, does this cause a problem for tetedelacourse, being as he does, live right in the middle of it?
well my neighbour gets a lift over the bridge by the forth road bridge maintenance guys in the wind when its closed. He was over it today but he is radio mental, me i`m whimping out.
Yes it was problematic. On days like that I'm forced to use my Grifter* to get to and from my hovel midway across the bridge.
*the heaviest bike known to man.
lol i remember putting a hole in the side of a Datsun when i was about 12 and my weapon of choice a grifter dont make them like that anymore !
Um er, actually I umm er chickened out on the way home last night and got a lift home from the in-laws (who are visiting at the moment).
Seriously though the weather last night was crazy in Glasgow. Very heavy rain, gale force winds etc. I would have been crazy to cycle home in that.
I left the bike at work and got a lift in this morning. Hopefully things will settle down a bit for tonight. I've never know winds like this to last this long...
blizzards have just arrived in Edinburgh
There not in George st yet but it looks very dark
Can I say it?
Oh go on then...
Ya BIG JESSIE !!!
(sorry to spoil your fun, Dom - couldn't resist)
To be fair to Dom, I think he was actually to scared to say it. He's a big fearty!
