Mudguards for my new bike, ordered from Wiggle Sunday night with free standard delivery and arrived this morning. Came in a huge box with lots of plastic packing but no Haribo!

Planet X Das Boots. Cleats on. Test ride done, toes still warm, but not too cold today and only a short ride, but so far so good.

A pair of Zoo Hardware door levers in stainless steel. Very nice crisp items at a decent price of around £12. Why does stainless look better than satin nickel? I think it's brighter.

Nice bit of Merino, Titanium cooking mug and spork from Alpkit and the fab book from Guardian books by that Emilly Chappell.

Like the style here ...

I looked at the OP and decided to by Emily Chappell's book about her adventures as a bike courier in London.

It wasn't strictly brought to me by the postie because I appear to have downloaded it to my Kindle Cloud Reader, something I didn't know I had.

Works OK, opens in my web browser, but I do wonder what I have actually bought for my fiver.

Made a start on the 'book'.

Readable and not too long.

As someone who spent several years working in the West End of London and wandering around there it appeals to me.

I grasp her descriptions of the various characters she encounters but never really makes friends with.

Maybe not so interesting for someone with no knowledge of or interest in the capital.

I was thinking of this book the other day after seeing Emily in an article a women endurance atheletes. I think you’re right that it really chimes if you are familiar with inner London riding. I really enjoyed it. I lent mine to a cycling pal without that experience and he found it a bit average.
I must read it again.
