It is 1 in 3 - I'm pretty sure it says 1 in 3 on the other signs.  I assume they ran out of space on that one...

I did get up it in one go, discounting when I stopped to take that photo.  There was a dodgy moment when I was riding at <3 mph and I thought I would topple over sideways :-\

This morning - longest ever ride on mtb with child seat and small child.  To chiropractor, jobs in town then fun ride.  Only about 9 miles in total, but the furthest we've been together.

Sounds cool. I am going out today because my shoulder, although still a bit tight, feels much better. I will get a couple of hours in then take Mrs. J-tsc out for a training ride. She has a triathlon on Sunday....

Sorry to hear about your shoulder Jasper. I hope the younger J's shoulder is healing ok?

Best of luck to Mrs J in the triathlon, have lots of respect for people who do those kind of shenanigans.

Am back to commuting today; Sundays extra mileage kept me off yesterday, my legs felt like lead, but better now.

Thankyou Laura. Tis an old injury that plays up now and again. I first crocked it charging down a heavy door some years ago.....well, you have got to have a hobby.

Sorry to here that your Sunday ride was so grim......in some ways I suppose it can only get better.

I suppose you were working at the time? I think my uber-solid front door might be a special one that the London Fire Brigade can open, there is a message from them on it telling me not to change the locks?!

Ah it could have been much worse, it did have good bits and the riders I was with were a nice bunch. I just won't be visiting that particular stretch of the NCN L2B route any time soon...

Yes, it was work. Leaving message like that is a new one on me. Some of these doors can be a sod to get through, we end up using the kit for cutting cars up on them. Makes a real mess....

It's engraved on the lock. All the flats in my block have the same doors, I wonder if it's something the council arranged with the fire brigade (flat is ex-council).

I've not been since 1st June due to the 1st metatarsophalangeal joint fusion
operation on both feet the following day. My feet have been in casts since, but
hopefully they'll be removed today this week 30 July  :-\  when the
consultant who performed the operation returns. (The private health company
won't fund anyone else to remove them).  >:(

Weight to be lost and form to be regained will be a slow process.   :-[

Sounds nasty, hope it goes OK. Could you screw cleats into the casts?

A nice short and fast ride: 28 Mi in about 1h30 this morning. It was a bit windy in parts, but reasonably warm. I fell great.  :)

Just got back. Went out solo around the Goodwood Hills for a couple of hours then into Chichester to meet up with Mrs. J-tsc. Off on her triathlon route for the last time before Sunday. It is very hilly for a time trial. Too much traffic around for a good ride but she paced herself well. Only problem was at the bottom of Harting Hill where the cars got in the way. After a stop, bit of a walk we got going again. Missed out the last bit and finished off around some lanes and back down to Chichester. Picked up a slow puncture on the cycle path to Bognor but got enough air in it to get home. Mrs. J-tsc has pronounced herself pleased with her progress, and if she is pleased so am I.

no, but I have mown the lawn which earned me more brownie points than going for a ride would have done.  Tomorrow.

I cycled the clockwise round the island route on Isle of Wight today. Chain came off at Alveston but sorted that. Hills got a bit much towards the end (from Cowes to Ryde) as I had run out of energy. Lovely weather and a great way to spend a day.

Did my usual 23 mile commute. Strange as I only live 1.2 miles from work. The phrase hopelessly lost comes to mind.

Not feeling brilliant but had a bit too much out of a bottle of Calvados last night, this followed my youinger brother getting in touch after over ten years.

Yep, a lovely ride of 30 miles to the riot training venue and then I get a phone call - get myself to Divisional HQ quick smart - I'm needed for a strategic meeting.  So I rode to work.  Then I get to ride home.
All up a 60 mile day !!

ten mile round trip to the dentist's with Mrs. & Little Miss Wow, then a pleasant jaunt to a pub in Leigh to celebrate My Mate Mel's 60th birthday (actually on Sunday), a surprise organised by his daughter. Chatted to chaps with whom, as a group, I have not conversed since 1981.

A fairly gentle ten miles bimble around Croydon picking up a parcel from the Post Office, dropping into BikePlus for some bits, and some shopping from Sainsburys.  Not a sunny day, but quite pleasant to cycle around, and only an occasional slight light drizzle.
Actually, it is rocket science.
