Bloody hell, quiet today. One cyclist going the same way as me this morning (Wandsworth to City) and tonight, no-one - not one other cyclist going same way as me - lonely....

Very boozy commute home last night around midnight. Not a single cyclist in sight (not surprising).
Hungover commute in this morning and somehow managed to get a KOM :P :P probably due to the fact the roads were absolutely dead.

Umm, even I scalped everyone in sight this morning. Not a single pass by anyone else, and I'm ever so slightly hungover from the office party last night, and I was most definitely, 100% pootling.

This pootling (eating, drinking and being merry) malarkey is not good for the waistline.
Why? Because I'm guaranteed a seat all the way in.

Wasn't the scrum a bit lopsided with you in it then?

Errr yeah, at 6'4" I'm taller than most other props. Which is why I've moved back to the second row on the rare occasions I play.

Windy & wet

Rule #9 // If you are out riding in bad weather, it means you are a badass. Period.
Rule #12 // The correct number of bikes to own is n+1.
Rule #42 // A bike race shall never be preceded with a swim and/or followed by a run.

...tumbleweed...

Very quiet this morning on CS7 and as I'm aiming to do the Rapha Festive 500 I decided to extend my normal journey in by heading left across Waterloo Bridge for my first commute along the Embankment.

Saw (and passed) just one other rider between Waterloo and Canary Wharf :shock:

When I got to the Wharf it was still so quiet that I decide to do five laps of the route there that they use for the Halfords Tour series.

Planning to return via RP for a few laps and get close to 100km for the day to set me up nicely for the rest of the week :mrgreen:

Likewise. By the Ballet House in RP, in the dark, with no tyre lever. Not amused.

Bit too blustery to be able to pootle home calmly.

Merry Christmas, all.

I got a puncture (maybe didn't fix the one I got on the way home Friday night properly), but managed to ride it all the way in, so I've left the wheel to dry & will fix it before I head off tonight....

So so windy, foolishly decided to get a few laps in on the way to my girlfriend's mum's house, clockwise, into the wind, up Broomfield hill. Blew up on the second lap and ended up walking up it, tres embarrassing.

Anyone ever get that feeling that nobody told you it was a bank holiday this morning. Either that or there was some sort of apocolypse while I was asleep.

12 miles into central London and only saw 1 bloke on a blue slicked trek MTB.

loads of poxy surface water as well

Very wet today and very quiet. Took advantage of the complete lack of activity in the office to get in a bit later than usual passed only 2 cyclists on mountain bikes on way in....

On the plus side christened the new winter commuter Pompetamine single speed and what a day for it. felt agricultural and a touch heavy but perfect for the conditions.

Was a race against the wind this morning - for how long could one keep going forwards in a southerly direction?
