Deb is out of hospital but still out of action for a while, so I’ve taken some time off work to help her get sorted at home a bit.
Before that though, there’s always time for a quick spin out on the bike. I’m going to take the road bike out for a couple of hours but I’m definitely taking a Brompton with me to hers in case I don’t get back for a day or five.
Probably Bertie (the red one), current favourite – S6L – although practicality dictates it should be Bessie (the black one – M3R) as she has the rack, the higher bars that a T bag fits for going shopping and flat/clipless combined pedals. A nice decision to be faced with..
I have two Bromptons, I enjoy riding them round London. 2 years into it and I think I know now the Brompton I should have bought the first time.
I now also have two road bikes with another on the way soon to possibly replace the pair. You know how it is though, start with a cheapy, buy a slightly better one and then it starts.. n+1.. but..

The racing season is nearly upon us. The world superbikes have gone to Australia.
Let the little flutters begin. £20 on Jonathan Rea turned into £50 in the first race, which should have been 30 and 75 but I hit the wrong key and didn’t change it. I’m not so confident about race 2, we shall see.
As long as the weekend works out on a plus so that the rest of the season is played using winnings only, it’s all good fun.
Shame really. It looked fantastic but the phone can’t capture it like a camera can. Looking out of the hotel restaurant window, which also looks over the Clyde.
This is Bertie the Brompton. Bessie is out on loan at the moment.
In this case, a read more tag. Seems to be missing from the android WordPress editor. Well isn’t that funny, you can insert it in the full editor online
I’ve booked 43 hours in 4 days, still have today to go and a 12 hour shift Saturday night into Sunday. Not sure when I last booked a 35 hour working week.
Thankful for the chance to earn enough extra in a week to buy a new Arai so no complaints eh! Leathers next week, soon be ready for the season on the Bears and a bit of F1.
