    I'd rather walk thanks. :D

    Feeling great on track bike and road bike. I've also got the added bonus that my road bike was virtually brand new when I had my accident and fits me like a glove so I've got that perfect new bike feeling now I can ride it.

    We've gone from a 14 bike to a 4 bike household. I miss my old Dolan @TM :(

    Mojo returning after a couple of years of absence.

    Since moving central most of my clients have been within walking distance of work. Unfortunately I didn't even get the walking exercise because I dislocated my knee in a ski accident in 2014 and then damaged my foot earlier this year which meant that I couldn't walk far so had to take quite a lot of taxis and public transport.

    Even though my foot problem was ok to ride on (carbon shoes ftw) I just couldn't face getting on a bike for fun not least of all because my fitness had slipped so much. I've piled the weight on and missing out on this year's London Marathon pissed me off even more.

    My injuries have all healed and a year of solid physio and exercises has helped me get my muscle balance back in my legs and my new client is a fantastic decent length bike commute from home. I've been for a few 50 to 100mi rides and I'm loving every minute I'm spending on the bike again. I'm losing a good pound a week of weight too.

    Long may it continue. I've missed you cycling.

    I was on the other side of the roundabout and heading the other way otherwise I would have said howdy. Howdy.

    Fuck me. Just went to the LBS near work and they wanted £25 for a KMC S1. That's nearly fiddy dorrah for a <£10 chain >>>>>>>>>>>>

    I thought that is what traffic lights are for.

    £32.02 at current exchange rates. Maybe if it was a real nice chain...

    Enough of this wheelsucking lark. Anybody fancy fitting a new chain to my bike while I'm at work today? :D
