POETS Day...

A fine British tradition. For any of the international readers of this blog that translates into Piss Off Early Tomorrow's Saturday.

I have achieved a first this week as predicted, work has not got in the way and I've managed 5 days total commuting, a car free week! Brilliant! The pedal in was again the City Centre route on my Giant. The reason I'm on the Giant today is so I can get home quickly dinner time. See POETS day.

The pedal in was a standard affair with no incidents other than I actually overtook a moving bus in Selly Oak! That's another first, he was doing about 20 - 25mph and I whizzed past at 35mph. He caught me up just before the Bristol Road McDonalds where I turn left up towards 5 Ways.

  1. Nice one Clive on the cycling front, for once I didnt need to resort to the Urban Dictionary.

    Av a great weekend matey
    Regards from TMWB

  2. There was a fat man from brum
    who decided to lose some of his tum
    So the lazy kike
    Got back on his bike
    Now he sees his cock when he does come...

  3. Ooooh....
    Piss Off Early Today...

    D'oh ;)

  4. Wifey thought your limerick was very funny.

    I said we shouldn't encourage you...

  5. Clives wife, she did like to laugh
    Coz Clive couldn't fit in their bath
    But now he's all thin,
    He can slip just right in
    And his life, is right back on path.

    He thanks his wife for the pushing,
    As its her that he's no longer crushing
    Now he speeds long the road,
    By bicycle mode
    ANd his wife is now all a gushing.

    I'll get my coat.

  6. She says haven't you got any bloody work to do?

  7. She says get on with it then. (In all fairness I would...)

  8. a car free week is cool eh?,even better when you do a mid week shop using the bob trailer then go xc riding from home at weekend too...if public transport was better (trains to the borders) i would sell the car and get a surly big dummy cargo bike...but its shite so have to keep the cage...i mean car!
