People at work refused to believe I was 31. The average guess was 26! Haha.

We're in a sunny field with tents and a tarp, watching kids ride bikes and the tandem we hired and the lad is enjoying riding the bike we hired :thumbsup:

That is good news.

It is less good news that my wet cycling clothes have been removed from where I hung them at 08:00 this morning, and have entirely disappeared.  :-[

Good luck with doing the world naked bike ride somewhat earlier than everyone else.  ;)

Clothes have been located. Someone complained that I'd hung them to dry in the loo and 'had them removed'. Ie, placed in the bin.  >:(

Yesterday I filed, shredded, binned or posted stuff on my desk.  I discovered the the little wooden patch where the mouse rolls extends all the way to the end of the desk. :D

Yesterday, at the Newport Velodrome with Rob Gullen's little group, we did a flying lap race, and I did my fastest time of just under 21 secs!  That's about 42.86kph (26.79mph)!

The tube strike was a pain for me to ride to work today. I really do hope that this is the last ever tube strike, because I can't handle this. 

I'm mean it took me 10 min less to commute the 7 or miles to work today, it is just not on ;)

and a bonus good news is that I got OS3.0 on my iPhone and I can copy and paste.

Yes I had cars but they didn't move and had plenty of empty roads so I didn't have to hold back, give room to other road users.
