I might have got accessories for it too. This is a Genesis Croix de Fer gravel bike. It’s made of steel and goes like a train. The photo was ta... Read more

It's cold and miserable out there today. Yesterday I got the May 50km ride done and dusted and next Sunday I am riding in the Cambridge 100. Miles, not kilometers. There is a 50 and 100km option but I got talked into the 100 miles by 'the new ... Read more

I set myself a challenge to ride my bike for 12 hours, in total, over the 4 days. Friday started well. I rode from Downham Market to Cambridge via Ely and then the NCN11, for lunch. Then back to Ely for the train to Downham. I think that I bro... Read more

Good Morning everyone. I have had my first week in my new job. It's very exciting. I am in the 'early' team. There are only about 40 of us at the moment and as we are in so early, we will be there until the bitter end - or in about 4 year... Read more

Quite literally chilling, I am waiting for the frost to go and then I will go for a ride. I cannot believe that it's Tuesday already. Less than a week before I start at Kier and I still haven't sorted all my ID. Mostly because DVLA are being v... Read more

I am in a lovely, converted stable block, cottage just outside Cantley in Norfolk. This place is lovely. Just gorgeous. It's spacious, has a range style oven, decent sized bath and endless hot water. Wonderful central heating too. I arrived... Read more

I went for a cycle ride with Phil. After 20 miles, I waved a car out of a side junction as we were battling at 6mph, into a rather intensive headwind, gusting at us. It was some young man in a BMW, I am pretty sure that I was just saving us... Read more

I know that I've not logged in for a bit. I have been suffering, rather, with anxiety and some depression. Kind of coming out the other side a bit now. The job situation has been interesting. The contract for the new job arrived. Lots o... Read more

It appears that the world did not end with the full moon, whatever the papers suggested. I could be a figment of my own imagination or I could be in the afterlife, but as my eczema is itching like anything, I kind of doubt that. Work has be... Read more

Yesterday, back at work, the other contractor who works via the same agency as I, came into our bit of the office and was quietly chatting to Princess Perfect (The apprentice Quantity Surveyor) and saying that she's leaving in 2 weeks. Her chap ... Read more

Today I rode my bike for the first time since getting those target miles in on NYE. It’s been cold and a smidge breezy and, quite frankly, I am chuffed that I made it out of bed. Phil said that we are not a couple. That’s me told then. ... Read more

I had better get out there then. I am currently on the settee, with decent coffee and a protein shake. I will go out, on my bike, after 9 when the idiots are off the road. Well, at least the idiots commuting to work. You know the ones, portabl... Read more
