Snowy Ride

A fairly manic day at work today, mostly spent trying to work out how I’d managed to break the dial-up remote access. That ended up taking a couple of hours with the aid of a copy of Ethereal before I worked out what was going on.

I popped down to PC World after work and picked up one of their cheap Toshiba 160GB external HDs for backups. Once that was plugged in I headed out on the Kaboom for an hour or so. I wasn’t intending to ride tonight but I could see the snow on the top of the hills and decided it was too good an opportunity to miss, it also gave me a chance to deliver a birthday present in time for tomorrow. Once I’d climbed up to the top of the hill there was a couple of cm of snow in places, not a great deal but more than I’ve seen here in quite a few years. Probably one of the best rides I’ve had for quite a while. Might even try for another ride tomorrow night.

    I’m currently about 400 miles short of the 2.5k miles for the year. Maybe I should cheat and get some road miles in? :-)

  7. rjw says:

    Road miles aren’t cheating, they are sensible :)

    Roadmiles aren;t cheating, unless your samuri, the roadie bastard, I remember when he was a hardcore singlespeeder and now he’s sold his soul to the devil.

    I;ve put 3100 miles on katie alone, no wonder her forks weep!

    I tried to sell my soul to the devil, but the devil didn’t want it.
