All set now for Sunday. Banana Falcon is prepped, I've even got my finger out and shortened the new chain, so now it changes gear and everything!
I'll also be celebrating birthday number 35 :shock: so, think of the solemnity of this great national occasion, it's not just a bicycle ride.

I was talking about my mate Bob Miller, lives down the road and survives on a diet of insects. No idea what the Scottish version of him is, but I will accept your erudite advice :)

My work's gone a bit haywire so I expect I'll be scrabbling for time to get a long tester ride in and umming over fitness right up until the day before, as per! :oops:



True to form I've not been able to get out on tarmac for a month (or two) but all this talk of 'gentle pace' and 'shortcuts for the terminally fat and under prepared' has got me bamboozled so stuff it, I'm in*








* in truth my road bike is batting it's lovely eyelashes at me and it's so pretty in the sunshine I just can't resist

Forecast is looking warm and dry tomorrow with cloud cover and a light south westerly breeze.
Perfect conditions for a ride ride in fact.

I'll see you all at the Cat and Fiddle at 10pm.
PM me if you need my phone number.
