You're eating Harvey Weinstein's "teacake"?
Yes. Very humid and drizzly rain.
Lots of misty drizzly rain on the hill in the distance. I can hardly see the hill. It is part of the forestry commission land and is covered in trees, not that you can see them today.
How'd yer guess?
What an experience this turned out to be. @Paulus is exactly right above. The other aspect is one gets a tiny insight in to how riders are working in a pro track race. Fascinating.
I hit 38mph for a bit.
Haven't ridden a fixed wheel for 52 years when I was 13. My cousin let me have a go on his but "failed" to mention what happens if one stops pedalling. Bastard!
I got a bit carried away this afternoon, my ride was supposed to be a short out and back, but on the way back I was riding up to junctions and thinking I'll just go that way, or this way, or that lane is pleasant to ride and ended up putting 51 miles under the wheels. Not a nice day for a cycle ride, warm, windy and spitting with rain at times.
I just had a message from my son.
"He passed and can now go on the road. God help us all".
So is he now on his way to see you or is it too late in the day now?
Too late for today. He decided not to Insure the bike until he passed his CBT

Weather has been really good so far this week and the forecast is looking good for the next 2 weeks. We're off to Wimborne, in Dorset on Sunday for a week and then on to Beaminster, in South Devon, the following week. If the weather holds out, we might nip into Cornwall for a week before going home.
It's nice when the only thing you have to worry about is how high the grass will be when you get home. Maybe I'll hire a gardener.
