Thursday 18th Sept: The Drugs DO Work


I’ve been out of magnesium for best part of a week and in that same time  not been sleeping well and started to feel like a minging cold was coming on. 

Got a new delivery of magnesium last night and last night slept like a baby and woke this morning better than I’ve been feeling all week.

Monday Sept 15th: ‘im indoors.


Today’s reason to be cheerful (and tbh most days) is ‘im indoors. This evening I have found myself in a big ole slump of “can’t be arsed” so he offered to take over cooking dinner. Doesn’t seem like a big deal but it’s everyday little acts of thoughtfulness that just make my life a bit easier and less dull.

Sunday 14th September: BMX Bandits Baby!

Went to the BMX track at Lee Valley VeloPark today with the LFGSS Ladies today and OMG. So. Much. Fun.

Fun that starts with being absolutely terrifying when you practise on what is essentially a nursery slope of ramps and a berm. I was actually shaking and feeling a bit terrified after the 1st go on the baby course and wondering if I hadn’t made a terrible mistake.

And then we got on the actual track and you start in the middle due to the main ramp being a bit terrifying for beginners….and then the next thing we knew we were at the top of said ramp.

I was amazed at how quickly things changed from “faaaaaacck!!! This is terrifying” to “faaaaccccking hell! This is amazing” and how quickly the bike felt comfortable, feeling a bit more instinct about how to move your body with the bike and not feel like I was going to go over the bars.

It was really pleasing to see a group of complete beginners with differing confidence levels get round and half the group said “I’m glad I had a go but never again” with the other half working out how they can add a BMX to their bike stable!


Basically cannot wait to go back and have another go. Burn, baby burn!

Saturday 13th September: Slightly Less Rubbish Roadies.


So today we set our alarm for the same time as our week day alarm (6.30) and was out of the door
for a ride just after 7am…generally we dick around and are lucky to be out by 9am which is not the way of the true roadie douchebag. I even wore proper short short bibs rather than my usual knee/3/4 lengths bibs.

And before 9am we were in the midst of pretty Kent villages with fords as half timber houses.

And before 9.30am I was cursing the lumpiness of Kent and my bravado of the summer and “the hills of Kent hold no fear now I’ve been cycling in Yorkshire”. I actually thought I was going to be sick going up Exedown.

I don’t mind a hill if it’s accompanied by a lovely long sweeping descent on big wide roads. When it’s a dark, potholed lane, less so.

But for all my moaning it was ACE to be back on my road bike and get SE miles and hills in.

Moar please!

Friday 12th September: Friday: F**k yeah!


It’s been another long week so coming home to a bottle of my favourite beer (screw the blue Peroni) and finding a vintage episode of Celebrity Coach Trip where they go to Venice properly reminded me of ace Italian summer adventures innit.

Thursday 11th Sept: A Sign of Things to Come?


Saw this today on my way to work. I can’t say how much more this is better than the usual “cyclists dismount” BS quite frankly.
