Rain rain go away...

It's absolutely chucking it down here, I got totally saturated this morning. Just as well it ain't cold. I don't bother with a waterproof in the summer 'cos you get just as wet through sweat anyway. I'd sooner stay a bit cooler. But that's just me.

Add on the fact that I probably needed to turn my lights on as well made it a tad depressing. It seems we're hurtling headlong towards the end of the summer and the dark mornings again.

I think I'll be using my lights next week. Terrible thought.

Onto the positives, I felt pretty good and did a reasonable time over Frankley Beeches.

Oh, and apologies for the profanity...


  1. I am afraid there is to many tossers about like this mate

  2. Yeah, the shortened days are a little depressing.....sorry to hear you have to start using the lights.

    I watched the, if that car would have stopped at the intersection just a few seconds longer, you could have rode up and given it to them.


  3. Damn, it was like he was trying to hit you!

    I'd report that one... he even came close to hitting another car!

  4. Fuck me mate. What a cock.

    Fight Bad Driving?

  5. Does he purposely brake too or am I seeing things?

  6. Stick it up there mate, no problem.

    I've just re-read that, you know what I mean!
