    35 miles on the road bike this morning taking in rural Worcestershire and the Clent Hills. Absolutely glorious weather - legs felt surprisingly good on the hills. Glad to be back in shorts and a short sleeved jersey. Would have stayed out longer but have other commitments this afternoon.

    No Anthony, crossing the Kent and Keer channels would play havoc with pedal, B/B and wheel bearings ..... not to mention that ground conditions would be a tad 'gloopy' for 28mm road tyres! I've walked that route several times!!

    A couple of years ago, one of our guys had had enough at Grange and caught the train home.

    I was a bit of an oddball until I was abducted by aliens; but I'm perfectly OK now!

    Not a good bike ride for me today. I had a mechanical and decided to take it out on a camera bike, my team mate got me back onto the peloton and i decided to hide and try and keep my powder dry. BMC went without me after i got dropped on the last categorised climb, so i cried off. I can't do with all these upstarts just attacking and riding off all the time, can't they just stay in one group so we can sprint it out? Harrumph.

    I had fun yesterday. I photographed Rosetto flying past the Dyneley Arms at about 50, then again as he came through Adel crossroads turning a giant gear very late in the day. All this meant i had to make it between points within 12ish minutes. I cycled the 5mls at an average speed of 19.8 and made it relatively comfortably to get the second photo, although i was very knackered.

    After the last official car had gone past i cycled the course for a few miles, the children watching on said i was "very naughty".

    40 minutes Sunday to Barwick in Elmet
    30 minutes potter tonight. Lovely afternoon with only a light breeze.

    Just starting to get slightly better but really enjoying it in my head.
    Its the motivation & depression that takes some beating.

    bit presumptuous, but the RAF Battle of Britain memorial fight are doing a couple of passes over Derwent Dams tomorrow for the 75th anniversary of the Dambusters/100th of the RAF, so heading out on the bikes to watch that. Beats being chained to the computer churning out thesis!

    ah, damn presumption. Lancaster/spitfire/hurricane flyby cancelled due to excessive wind.
