    Today's Bike Ride

    Well, with the announcement that GFRCEA '08 is a goer, I cracked out the GT 2000, gave it a quick squirt of WD40, wiped the spiders off and went a quick 20 miler around Skenfrith.

    God, we are blessed with some of the most beautiful country here. I think I was passed by at least 3 cars in the entire time I was out. Sweeping tarmac, epic views, grinding climbs....me an' the bike eat 'em all up. I could get used to this!

    Re: Todays Bike Ride

    Was due to go MTBing on the 35k course this morning. Started coughing yesterday and coughed all day and all night, so had to phone my mate ths morning and cancel . Feel sh*t and depressed - and it's still raining. Will have a gentle walk instead.

    2 bikes all clean and polished in the shed and nobody to peddle them

    Snotted, gobbed, coughed and spluttered my way round 42 miles of windy, damp mountain roads today.

    Can't say I enjoyed any of it, but better than doing nothing.

    At best, one is in motion, and, at worst, reaching no absolute in which to rest, one is always nearer by not standing still.

    Poor Moley, nobbled by this summer flu thats doing the rounds. I've only just started feeling like doing anything again.
    Anyhow, a 1 hour leg-refresher today after Pen Y Fan yesterday. Big grind up the Kymin followed by a mad swoop down forest trails at Staunton, down to the Wye and a fast 3 mile dap back along the river path to town and home....Nice!

    Ooooohhhh....me perineum!
    Did a 40 miler today. Back roads to Abergavenny via the Skirrid and then a fast return along the old A40 (nicely marked out with a cycle lane). 2 hrs and 10 minutes. Bike goes well!

    Managed 75 today with Preston's lovely pink pony. Out round Cockerham Sands and round to Scorton. Another 60 ish in the morning and then a couple of running days I think. No work for 7 more days
