Weak the force is...

Ohh, not a good pedal in, wifey woke me up at 0530hrs which is unusual and I wanted to roll over and go back to sleep.

My road bike pedal in over the Beeches was not great, my bio-rythmn's must be low. I want my bed!

I forced myself to get up out of the saddle on the climbs which took a bit of will power, but I'm here now.

Yesterday's pedal home was without incident, although considering the kids are off, the traffic was mightily busy as the video below shows.

Anyway, I negotiated those opportunities for suicide safely and the stats are here:

  1. I noticed it was a little busy for "schools out" yesterday.

    I hope your biorythms pluck up - nothing worse than cycling when your body is trying to make you stop.

  2. Tell me about it, my eyes are still trying to shut here... :-(

  3. woohoo for cadbury's world :) Had tickets for there once which we never used and they ran out. I was well gutted.

    Yeah roads look well dodgy and drivers stuck in queues tend to get a bit rambo-ish when they drive.

  4. Respect man, I'm afraid this country boy from the vale of Neath, could not cope with that kind of traffic, it really is scary. Tell me what is the name of your moviecam, I'm thinking of getting one, if I can find one cheap enough. What happened with your complaint against the bus driver? Any result?

  5. Our bio-rythmns must be synced....I've been feeling more tired than usual this week. Still strong on the bike, but just overall tired in general.
