It's not actually raining in Norwich today, something must be wrong.

I was going to rest today & tomorrow but feel i ought to go do a light bike ride.

I havent ridden it since Saturdays issues, plus it had a full service on Tuesday so would probably be wise. Give me peace of mind that all is now well with it, unless something falls off it.

As long as it's not you

Its raining here too so wondering whether to brave the elements on the bike today, and to top it off the council thought it would be a good idea to cover the roads around where I live with loose chippings, so now only do I have less brakes because of the rain, when I do use them I just skid half a mile .

But as GT says its time to HTFU

Thanks for the kick up the backside, gastank.  Really enjoyed the run, and the rain was very refreshing.  Took longer than expected as I had to wrestle a rabbit away from the wolf .

Off to lie in a hot bath with Fink and a mug of coffee.

Back to the tri suit question.  Is 'so tight my tattoos show through' too tight?

Hmmm, could be too tight OR you have a really light coloured tri suit!

Ask yourself am I physically comfortable in this, if the answer is no then it's probably too tight... Mentally none of are comfortable but you could be different ..,

I like running in the rain it's just first 5 minutes once your wet it's quite refreshing.

NR - are you Geoff Capes?

Manned up & went out for a 40 minute spin. Bit breezy but kept dry. Quite a warm evening as it goes.

Maybe I should change my name to Budgie Fancier.

Well done on getting yourself out on the bike.  4º here.  

Yep, ST, you get to a point where you can't get any wetter!

A long term anti social relationship with the pirates then, you could always come and help this year... What was your excuse again on that one?

Excuses?  Given up on those. Resistance is futile . Have found true happiness in the Gospel According to Fink.

Will see what's happening beginning of July.
