Cold, wet, miserable, and offline

Headed out for a quick spin on the Langster tonight. First I popped into the LBS to say goodbye to Ian who’s off to Australia for a month, I ended up collecting my birthday present and a load of cards so had to pop home again before heading back out. It started to drizzle as I headed to Saltford, so I’d half decided to turn around at Saltford and come home again, however the drizzle had more or less stopped so I decided to carry on. A bad choice. As I rode up the hill it started raining, then turned to sleet, then snow. It turned back into sleet as I headed back down the hill again, but didn’t let up until I got home freezing cold and soaking wet, but somehow strangely satisfied.

Unfortunately Pipex seem to be having routing problems at the moment, so I can only see about half of the interweb, and can’t get any mail. I might have to find something productive to do this evening at this rate.

    I suggest that you drink beer and watch a film. That’s what I’m doing. At least you didn’t manage to fall off your bike this evening, unlike me :(

    Boo :(

    I nearly crashed ‘cos I couldn’t see where I was going at one point. I’m drinking a medicinal Pastis at the moment.

    lol, fool!

    My light kept going out after my crash. Not surprising as I had to ride along holding it in my hand as I’d smashed the bracket and I kept knocking the switch!
