Old, short and tired.

    I have the dynamic and I use Carradice bags but with the bagman quick release. I'm quite short, so the gap between saddle and rear wheel isn't a large one, so the bagman helps.

    Waves to Hoefla I lurk rather than post these days.

    @Howard - Too many are fixed on "must get in front" however they can and others don't think about others when they left hook. As per usual, a few take exception to me passing them, even though I'm slow af and couldn't race anyone even with a 30 minute lead rolls eyes.

    I look forward to dwindling numbers of cyclists during the coming winter. Especially those with qualifications in undertaking and close passes.

    Take a look at Paramo jackets. Pricey as is Rapha, but a good investment - in my opinion, anyway.

    Had a lie-in so no run this morning. News on the radio a few mins ago confirmed pollen levels at 10 year high. Very early run tomorrow then.

    Thanks for that. I'll see if I can get out of bed that early tomorrow and see what happens.

    The smarties is not a bad idea either. Could use it as a reward for that early start.

    Has anyone on here been so affected by the pollen/pollution that they've had to stop running outdoors, for a while? I'm a hayfever sufferer and take meds much of the year. My run on grass last Tuesday didn't end well and trying again last Sunday wasn't much better, so no running since. Only coughing up a small piece of my lung today, so progress.

    I'm not a gym member, as was using running/cycling + stretches for fitness/weight loss. I may have to revisit that option and review a mask for the commute.

    Tooting and Clapham Commons any good? Both have Park Runs and they never close.
