    How about this weekend then?

    Weather looks good, my parking permit is still valid and there are DH tracks to be tamed.

    Unfortunately, I can’t. Parent’s 50th wedding anniversary.

    So I went on my own again today.

    Did two laps of the Verderers, the second in big ring (38T) only without stops. I’m quite pleased with myself. I’d be even more pleased if Strava hadn’t been a dick at 3s and autopaused but not restarted… 👿 👿 👿

    Had a (far too) short blast on a Trek Powerfly LT. Holy shit, those things are fast! I think the bloke who lent it to me was worried I was riding off with it I set off so fast! 😈

    Thanks. 🙂 Had a good ride with work colleagues on the skinny yesterday too, climbing like a pro, they all wanted to know what I’d had for lunch!

    I’m off to the FoD Saturday afternoon if you’re interested, aiming to get there for 1pm.

    Back at the FoD again today.

    Up at 6 to walk the dog before work, 7-11 on the tools, walk the dog again and drive though shocking conditions to get a parking space on the tarmac at 1pm. Unheard of in normal weather conditions.

    Did two non-stop laps of the Verderers in the big ring, didn’t even stop to drink (refreshing on the fly), and a cheeky little bit of the red. My word, the plantation is rather dark, isn’t it? 😆 Unfortunately, I’d left my helmet torch in the car… 😳

    Strava wasn’t a dick this time, but I wasn’t all that quick. Not surprising given the conditions.
