The Muck Stops Here

Post by MellowYellow » Sep 6th, '18, 13:16

Did 50 incident-free miles today barring the fact that I'd forgotten to reconnect one indicator.

Did some of the route that the Tour de Britain followed a couple of days ago and some of the route that we took on the SWB Mendips ride.

Bike seems A1. I'm a little achy / stiff after 5 weeks. Quite tentative too, brain ruling wrist.

Might have clean fingers and nails in a few days. Might go to Porlock on Sunday.

Have you noticed that anyone going slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster is a maniac ?

For the unenlightened - Nelson Street on Monday is collecting the dole.

Yep - sorted the alarm and jammed fan.

Brain still needs a bit of help though. Hopefully going to Minehead / Porlock on the morrow.
