What did I learn today?

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008

Do not try to ride over Mow Cop just after eating a load of last night’s left over fish pie.

No, that is not a euphenism.

I know that’s not how you spell it, but it makes sense to someone.


Nearly didn’t make it…

What with 2 out of 3 kids ill and no Ag this week, along with Judith at nightschool on a Monday, it was touch and go, but I just managed an hour on the turdblow trainer.


Around the lanes again…

I took spin and spent some time riding down the lanes that I’ve always wondered ‘where does that go?’

Truth is, they mostly don’t go anywhere, but never mind.

Counldn’t fit a ride in until late on, so decided not to bother and watched a DVD instead.

On the turbo trainer !

As it was cold and windy this afternoon and looked like it might piss down at any time, it seemed like a good idea to take a quick blast around Hanchurch. I thought I’d really try to ride everything as fast and as hard as I could – great fun going downhill, but after getting to the top of the big climb and nearly fainting/throwing up, I decided it would be a much better idea to go home and have a bath instead.

18/18 though :-)

I forget how hilly it is in Macclesfield.

Late but done…

Didn’t get out today until gone 19:00, but I did it and ended the ride in the dark. Local lanes, not many folk about, smashing.


Turbo Man…

Bah, I hate that thing. Still, I watched the rest of Deathproof, so it wasn’t all bad.

50% done.

Thursday Night Ride 17/04

We will be riding in the Macclesfield area.

Bingo, bango, bongo…

It’s lovely on a sunny early afternoon around the lanes. Hot though.
