How arm warmers & gilets are the best cycling kit ever, and ten other random thoughts
I'm doing this sportive on Sunday. No idea what the connection between Lewis Carroll and Malvern is, and I haven't got time or inclination to google it. Let me know if you find out.
I have been doing a lot of riding and not a lot of blogging or much social media in general. But that may change, or not. Tomorrow I'm off to the Academy of Football to see the Irons take on Stoke, much like I did for my first ever match nearly 42 years ago.
Anyway, here are my random thoughts, the intro was the deep and meaningful bit.
1. Anniversaries and Birthdays.
2. Bike lights and clear sunglasses
3. Spiders' webs
4. Is 2013 the windiest year in the history of the world?
5. How quickly it all changes
6. No I don't need a rest, I need to ride my bike even more, like now when I'm riding 8 days out of 11
7. From Monday I have got, or maybe get to, take seven days off riding.
8. Some people can't resist changing documents or giving you their opinion. It's wearing. But I always win wars of attrition so look out.
9. Non-sticky glue never is.
10. Some people change their name when they get married and others don't. And some do and don't at the same time.
