After a shit day at work, it’s nice to be able to sit in the garden with the laptop catching up on emails whilst drinking an ice-cold can of Stella.

No riding tonight because my legs are aching a bit, partly from last nights ride, and partly from riding the fixie a bit more and using my legs as brakes. Hopefully I’ll ride up to Ethans birthday party (part one) tomorrow, unless I decide to take the camera kit.

The first of (hopefully) many

Tonight was the first work ride of the year, although only two of us actually made it out. We did a gentle trip round the usual Uni route, mostly slowed down by my choice of gearing. After the descent back down into the valley we stopped off at the pub for a criminally expensive pint of Stella, although the "sightseeing" sort of made up for it.

Following a quick post-ride spannering session, the Unit is now back running 31:16 despite the best endeavours of the chain to stop it working. With the chain as it was I couldn’tget it taught enough,but after taking a link out I could only just squeeze the wheel back in again.
