But Rocky bites the dust.
20 Miles out in good time, Kev had a hurty knee that worried us a little but then he stopped his whining and got on with it.
We stopped at Tootsies for the obligatory Cherry Pie (not a euphemism) and headed back to town.

All was going well until Mr Wind got his blowy hat on. It wasn’t too bad but it took the fun out of it a little.
Then, Quelle Surprise, we met up with Stan on top of Silver on the way back.

Then, noticeably Rocky pulled up lame and started to complain about hurty knees, broken wheels and poorly cogs.

Rocky Bites The Dust

We fed her carrots and sugar cubes and nursed her back to Formby where we announced she was dead and fit for the glue factory. However, Mrs Challoner has other plans and Lazarus-like we expect Rocky to be released from bicycle hospital on Thursday. Until then, Kev is going to have to borrow a bike for training where err he can.
Overall a fun, sunny day with a good average mph and a nice bacon buttie. All is well in the world.

For those that know me – Wednesday is pub innit. But before i can go along for that jolly little beer up i had to put some more miles on the clock,
22 was done today but only because i had to get back in time for conference calls. I couldnt leave early as the bike had a puncture and then i had to book flights and hotels for Krakow (Claires 50th) so it seemed all things conspired to stop me heading out to the big 30-40 miler i had planned.

Tomorrow is pretty much the same. Kid to the dr’s and then calls starting early. I hope to get another 22 miles done and this time i may push to set some kind of time record (pb). If i am going well i will push it out and cover the route me and Stan did at the weekend….but it wasnt fun.

Anyway, I am off to the pub for a few with the lads and the quiz. No Kev (can’t be arsed), No Dave (in work at 6am) and no Stan (in da smoke) means I am out with the young ‘uns……which is nice
