Wayne’s labour of love is finished and looking overly spangly, I expect to see him pimping it up on the start ramp of various tracks very soon.
(It looked like this when he first bought it)

My bikes are nice too, but i don’t have any new pictures of them, so you’ll have to use your imagination. The cabal looks pretty hardcore right now with it’s new race x lite wheels…i should probably get out there and ride it!

My recent rides have been hard and fast (road bike last sunday, 6.5hrs @ 161bpm), loads of fun (6hrs mtbing in the spring sun on tuesday @ 149bpm) and utterly miserable (4.25hrs in a hurricane @140bpm yesterday). More riding to come tonight and saturday, I’m presuming both of these will be in the rain as that’s just about the only type of weather I’ve not had to put up with so far this week…

In “other news” Wall Street, a bar just up the road from my house has closed down. I had many a good night there as a student, with mates working our way through the cocktail menu (then demending the bar staff make our own concoctions). Never thought that would disappear!
I must be getting old.
