Out on the bike cos I have a week off..... looking forward to giving the road bikes some stick after riding all week on the MTB to work.
Playing with my new phone Sony K770i - went for it as it's really compact - my current PDA phone thing is far too big to take out on the bike and the camera in it is rubbish.
Replacing my top cartridge bearing in the MTB's headset - knackered. Found some Look Carbo Pro pedals on ebay (top of the range Looks) for my training road bike - will replace the PP196 Teams (one down from Carbo Pro) - and they are red - will match my tyres and the 'red' flashes on the paint scheme....the Teams are silver and blue...which clash (plus they've got a bit tatty having been crashed in the past)..
Whereabouts? We're going in November, to some spa hotel that's been advertising in the weekend papers for a few weeks. Hope they have bikes to borrow, otherwise I'll have to lounge around drinking all week, and where's the fun in that?
Checking out a route to St Albans tomorrow, and starting to build the carbon uberbike this evening.
Trimming the hedge (exciting stuff hey) and the goingh for a spin. It'll have to be another shortish loop though as my pregnant wife is due on Thursday so I need to get back quickly if she goes into labour!
Tonight (owt after work finishes counts as weekend for me!) aikido before meeting up with my dearly beloved who by then will probably be in a state of advanced refreshment as (one of) her mate's visiting this weekend.
Saturday, pick up dilapidated van (of which more later...), meet up with mate (who's been abandoned by wedding-dress-shopping soon-to-be missus) and play some pool, get an early night.
Sunday, get up at 0600hrs (what's the 0 for?) and stow 3 bikes and 2 mates into it for chug down the M1 to Leicester for "Rutland and Beyond" audax.
Blimey, reading all that back might suggest I've got some sort of social life...
