...but babyMekon was up from 2am-6am and I need to drop some stuff off after work. I took my running stuff in and did a 5k instead.

Similarly, PikeMoggit has been confined to the house for six days and has been serenading us at 2a.m. each night. Hence no cycling, due to shortness of sleep.

Mrowl.

I can haz sleep plz?

Next week, due to Easter Hols, not only will the traffic be very light, but a parking space is available under our building.
I intend to drive in every day. Other than the occasionally rare one off for business or personal logistical reasons - It's been 15 to 20 years since I've done that.    Wish me luck - I'm sure I can do it.

I could have commuted in today but ... there would be no point because we're closed. Hurrah for public holidays!

I did it!  A whole week of driving to work.  A very interesting experiment.  I think I deserve some sort of congratulation.

Well that's got that out of my system.

...I just bailed out. I hadn't washed my kit due to a very busy weekend and couldn't face the journey at 0600hrs in last week's smelly kit.

...I had a day off.
Physio appointment in Ashbourne, and took the Brommie there on the bus.  Which was free on the way out, as the bus had been so delayed by a road closure.

...Tuesday is one of the days I act as my wife's chauffeur, so I only got to ride the last couple of km, which is particularly galling when it's such a lovely day out there.

Anyway, cos it's so nice out, I brought the fast bike today and I'm counting the minutes until I can get out for a post-work ride. What's the betting it'll be raining by 6pm?

... Tuesday night is a sculling night, and 20 miles on a bike is a looong warm-up. Ely - Littleport - Ely on the Ouse now the evenings are light enough.

I believe some nasty long pyramids are in the plan. Oh, goody.  :sick:

 . . . .  619km of the BCM has left me a bit sore and I need to pick up some wood from B&Q on the way home. Next bike commute on Thursday.

...I have been "training" sunday/monday/tuesday and I have to take a large parcel to Taunton and pick up

1) a tent
2) a bag of cement
3) a bag of sand
4) a couple of handbells

I don't have a trailer or a cargo bike so don't give me a hard time about this :)
