    Metal skip arrived today, this is all from my half plot!

    Metal skip arriving at ours today apparently, this will mean I can get another 2-3 beds in this weekend once I clear all the crap this evening.

    Been a bit busy with Audax, but still been chipping away at ours, loads of stuff coming through, need to sort a shed next.

    Lee Killestein is an Audax regular and has scored huge points the last few years, it'll be interesting to see how he gets on in a race situation.

    I've 'slept' in the hall before my last two rides cheap room is definitely more optimal for actual sleep. Someone was snoring so loud this weekend I could still hear them through earplugs!

    3 hours sleep is plenty, by the time you stop to sleep at Lilleshall (380k) you've more than broken the back of the ride for the next day.

    I was on Dauntsey Dawdle 400 this morning, saw loads of riders from Paddington Express going the other way near Maidenhead bit of a mind fuck at first, unusual to see anyone at 5am let alone a load of other audaxers going in the other direction!

    Hope it's going well for everyone!

    Wait until they realise PBP is in France, and they have to get their own bike over there.

    This is what I've done with an assos pair, as I also have big guns (fat arms). Cut the elastic at the seam and sewn the bottom of the cut so it won't rip further. I kept getting a sore tendon on long rides before work better now and still stay up.

    Why bother asking in the first place then, expecting validation?

    You seem nice, hopefully we won't meet.

    dependent on the organiser and how much of a stickler

    Bit unfair, riding without mudguards particularly when the weather is bad is pretty annoying for other riders too, spraying other people with road crap, going into controls covered in crap and leaving a mess etc.

    Some rides due to location will rely on good relationships with the controls they use, people going in caked in mud and leaving a mess all over their nice cafe will not help that.
