If Richard Hell had been writing "Blank Generation" today, it would probably have been called "iPod Generation" to reflect current trends. Yesterday I caught up with the rest of the world and bought an iPod Shuffle to use when out riding, a job it fulfills admirably. It got it’s first bike related use as I headed out to Timsbury to meet Ian and Janine for the usual Chew Valley ride. I took the short route home this time and only did a shade over 36 miles.
The afternoon was partly spent half-asleep in front of the TV watching Tom Boonen come from nowhere to become World Champion for 2005 with a stunning finish.
