    Much on?

    I was going to watch my first cyclo-cross race. Turns out it was last week so I won't bother.

    Where was it?

    I am doing websites in between ferrying kids about and wasting time on here.

    Sheffield. It would have made a nice ride out and back.

    Surprised they had a race clashing with the National Trophy in Derby.

    If the weather is good on Sunday, then i am going to go on the club ride again. So i'm hoping for no rain, and no wind.
    I'm hoping. ;)
     
  10. Its supposed to dry up finally here tomorrow so I might go out on a ERC club run. Its supposed to windy however and my winter bike's a flat bar (Sirrus) so I may opt for a slower group.

    Taking my five year old daughter and three of her friends to Pizza Hut for her birthday lunch tomorrow.

    Hope to get to see a lot of the HC rugby over the weekend too, starting with Saracens vs Glasgow now (with a break for Mrs Hugo15 to watch what happens to Vera Duckworth in Corra!!).

    Fingers crossed for some decent weather so I can get a few miles in on Sunday morning.

    I thought I'd have a look at the starty bit, then wander round to a difficult technical looking bit and possibly watch the finish as well ;).

    The best way to see a cross race is to walk round the course in the opposite direction - make sure you keep WELL out of the way - tucked in well off the course when anyone approaches.

    Riders will also appreciate a bit of encouragement.
