Kev is king of Lumi-Green

Apparently when i cycle i am dressed like some urban youth ready to do all kinds of hoodie based activities. Yet, my accuser is dressed like a big fuckin’ lemon. People don’t take you seriously as a cyclist unless you’re in a lumi colour.

Scout Goes Lame

Sad but true, i’ve named my bike after Tonto’s horse – scout. And he’s gone lame due to a huge friggin thorn.

Another 30 Miler Nailed

Well that was a good ride. A little slow coming back but i messed up a few times. Dropped my waterproof iphone bag, had 2 or 3 quick sit downs etc. So 2 hours 38 minutes for 30.12 miles isnt bad at all if you ask me. The reality of having another 11 miles to […]

Bubonic Plague has attended my house and visited upon me, great wailing and sniffling of noses, headachey sweats and much gnashing of teeth. So i thought you can stick training up yer jacksy today as i can barely breath let alone pump my fat ass along beaucoup miles. I’ll go tomorrow if i am still […]

New Route Tested

30 Miles. Out to Wingates junction on the A59 gives us just over 15 miles each way. I did it on Wednesday and it was quite good. I imagine if it was windy it would be an absolute shit of a route but such is life. Traffic is light and the pathways are laid out […]

Saturday

Holy smokes, Me and Stan struggled today. It seemed the wind was in our face for the whole journey, which as it is point to point seems a little weird. I swear the wind changes direction as soon as we reach the Plough roundabout. Average speed of 10.23 mph for 22 miles was not great […]

Another 22 miles done.

Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday and now Thursday. I am getting good and keen at this old bicycling thing. Hopefully in a week or so i will be able to keep up with Stan and Kev. Maybe in a few weeks or so

waiting for my chic who’s stuck in a shop with the tills down, mid purchase so she won’t tell them to stuff it and walk out. Personally I’d rant and wander
