Hearts and minds over matter

After some idiocy involving an email out box and a little used send and receive option on my XDA, I finally registered my interest in a place for the off road London to Brighton. Kelly, Hayden, Ruth and Tom (plus AN Other) have also indicated they are up for the challenge.

The best bit is that I think it is going to start in Richmond Park.

So I am guessing the first bit will be towpath to Walton / Weybridge, then the Wey Navigation Canal to Guildford. Pancake flat and quite fast – so I am entertaining the thought of doing it on the single speed.

I can feel the miles, smell the fish and chips on the front, and taste the beer on the train back to London already.

I will also do some form of fundraising – as I think more than a £30 contribution is required for this good cause.

testing testing 1-2-3.

Having just been possessed with the urge to have a look at how easy it is to start a blog, I have simultaneously found out it is very easy, and that right now I have virtually nothing of note to say or share.

Not seeing the latter as a hindrance – I can reveal to myself (as I expect there is nobody else looking at this) that I intend to use this as a tool to record and share my cycling trips with my friends and family - and to otherwise entertain myself when I am travelling for work - sitting in departure lounges, or on trains that go at their pace not mine.

This is therefore both a form of Tetris and a lazy way to show people what I am up to.


Meanwhile -a bit of Singlespeed Mountain Bike Action (ahem) from SSUK 2008.
