Managed to get into work dry this morning - but not looking good for the return trip soon!
Pretty wet today.
Have to head back home during lunch to let the dog out, wish he'd learn how to open the door himself.
"Why is your dog called 'Blacksmith'?"
"Because whenever I come in he makes a bolt for the door"
Got in dry. Resigned to not getting home dry from the moment I decided I couldn't be bothered finding my waterproofs because I haven't unpacked them from our holiday yet. It's Friday, I don't care :-)
Some times this is the way, because it is....,.
It was 2°C on my ride to work just now. I miss that European heatwave. On the bright side, I didn't get rained on, even though rain is forecast for today.
The realisation that in a couple of weeks I'm goint to need lights for the morning commute.
I used mine on the way home last week because I had to stay a bit late :-(
"wah, you were going too fast!!"
Been using my lights since last week on my pre work rides
Yep. Mine went on last week and will now be on the bike for the next 9 months.
"How dare I ride at 17mph in a 30mph zone! I'm such a cad!"
A few recent experiences..
Noisy strange bike
This drifting was deliberate - I saw all three drivers watching me in their wing mirrors - the first 2 made space, the third tried to shut me down from filtering.
This Jaguar driver thinks the cycle paint is his personal stop line. Don't you just hate it when they do this ?
I've seen disco bike man on the b2b the past couple of mornings
Someone replied to my tweeting that video to say how annoyed he was at disco man spoiling the peace & tranquillity. I said good evening but he seemed rather taciturn. The trailerboard was intriguing. So much weight on that back wheel as well !
