Hot and Sandy

Travel writing, pictures and stuff for people I know. Quite a lot of cycling talk, and some semi-controlled ranting. Hiking, outdoor and two-wheeled stuff, perhaps a little computing when it's worth talking about. Meandering thoughts.

Friday, July 20


Man, I have to get out on my bikes more.  I'm not talking about motorcycles- good old pedal power.  I really miss it.  

In our house one of us is getting a job change soon, which means that we won't be dependent on each other to get to the station and so on.  One of the side-effects of this is that I'll be able to cycle to work.

You might remember a previous bloggage about cycling to my current place of work; well it's a slog, initially on lovely country roads but later on fenland alongside (or at least parallel to) the A1, exposed and barren.  The plan was to audaxify my On-One and use that, on a pretty easy fixed year (I'm thinking 42x16).  Works well until you get a real howler of a day like today.

I've been working at home and it's been amazing - not amazingly productive, but amazing nonetheless.  I've seen roughly 28 years of weather and today was still pretty damn cool.  Proper "ghostbuster skies", lashing horizontal rain and gloom.  Nice! 

More another time.  Faceb00k's been on TV again today, which means that it will be full of idiots by tonight.  Sorry, I meant fuller.  I must try and work out when I first joined.  I'll tell you something for free (my lad?) - it was a long long time ago.
