>Blue Monday

>Well, its not me who is blue today, although my language maybe.

I managed to get 43 miles in today which i was pleased with given the weather was rather windy. I cycled the long way to work, doing 21 miles into a strong head wind, and had a tail wind home. Better that way round than the opposite.

I finally got the chance to use my saddle bag as I now have the replacement bracket for it.I thought I would try riding to work with it for a few days to ensure I have worked out how to fit it and to see how it affects the handling of the bike. It feels odd not to be carrying a rucksack and as I set off both this morning and tonight I had the feeling I had forgotten something. It was just the feeling of freedom from the rucksack straps.

I do have to say that I am starting to panic at how small the saddlebag is. I do not know how I am going to get all my kit in it for two weeks cycling. It is starting to look as if I will either whiff a bit by the time I get to JoG or I will have to try to find a launderette at regular intervals on the way.

No cycling tomorrow as I’m back to the Crown Court sitting at Canterbury for a spot of drug importation, money laundering and the like.

Only 60 days to go

About spen666

I'm a 50 something football fan and occasional cyclist. I've been a football fanatic most of my life and have completed the 92 football league & premier league grounds previously. I have 1 left to rejoin the 92 club. Added to this numerous non league grounds, a number abroad and you start to get the picture. I took up cycling in around 2000. Although my father was a former World Vets Champion, I got into cycling accompanying my son to ride in London. This was followed by my commuting to work each day into Central London. Then doing some Sunday rides, then some audax events (www.audax.uk.net) and then a week's cycling holiday in France with a friend. From there, I got more and more into cycling and in 2009 completed LEJoG and in 2010 rode in the USA with the Police Unity Tour. I completed blogs for those events at www.aminearlythere.blogspot.com and www.bothesidesofthepond.blogspot.com Feel free to read them and learn more about me. I now am one of the organising committee for the UK Police Unity Tour (www.ukpoliceunitytour.org ) I live alone which suits me as it gives me time at weekends to pursue my interests of cycling and football. (Well what did you expect me to say? That I'm sad at being single?) I'm currently looking for my next challenge. Any suggestions gratefully received.
