Thanks Meldy. I could cope with the tutting it was the shoulder barging that was annoying. Admittedly it must have been a pain for the fast folk to have a fat pirate walking in their way after a mile.

Oh I dont know ... if they have done races before they will be quite used to that

I han't seen that one Melds. I'm doing the smaller Longest Day one from Dorney the 15th April (week before Chiltern Dipper?).


At the risk of sounding like I am repeating myself, I am doing that one too, but the smaller version!

Cake - Muffin is a lady, I can confirm this after meeting her the week before....although I obviously didn't look too closely as we were cycling at the time.

Usual Monday 10k for me at lunchtime, this time in 42 mins dead which is definitely a pb.  Effort miles (3 & 5) both done in 6 mins 5, as I was running with a much better athlete which spurred me on.  Dreaming of a sub 40 some day!

I'm a bit gutted tonight, having come out of work this evening and found my beautiful cross bike stolen, lock cut off.
It was a present from my husband, and I was really enjoying commuting and training on it. Feeling v sad.

Unlucky Joddly, picture up on here, just in case?
19/03/2012 at 20:59
I reported it to the local police station (I think, if switchboard put me through to the right number - a pleasant man took the details, but there isn't much they can do). Hospital security may have some CCTV footage which they will look at tomorrow, but I couldn't see a camera near where the bike was.

I've tried and failed to get a picture here - it's a Colnago World Cup (back and white cyclocross bike), with eggbeater pedals and low saddle - can't have been that easy to cycle off on.

I'm just looking at the insurance now...

There is every chance it will turn up Joddly and especially if it is not a common one

Did you have the serial/frame number at all?
19/03/2012 at 21:34
There's a frame serial number on the Wiggle build form. Now that it might be important, I've realised it's a bit difficult to read, but I hope it would do.

Phone that through on the same number once you have deciphered it and they will add it to the crime report

Thanks, Melds, your advice is very reassuring.
