2013 cycle rides

01.01.13 sunny but cold (under 10C). Rode out with Jake towards Barton in the Beans about 31k. Hard work but managed to get up Normanton hill in the big ring.

A second test rant - with another picture!

I like a good fireworks display, me. Unfortunately the best I get in Ashby is to hear one rather than see one. Apparently this is due to there not being enough clearance between the bath grounds (site of the infamous cycle assault, another day) and the houses. They chose to live there, I say. Anyway, what's the worst that could happen?

GSOH Male WLTM Female size 8-10, aged 25.5...

A Kathryn rant...

"Egotistical males with a bit of money who will only select a women based on size, or whether she is "pretty"!!"

Surely you can't afford to be choosy if they have had to resort to advertising in the Guardian Soulmates section.

How come these people are always "good looking"? (Alternatively you get the ironic ones who describe themselves as "buzzard ugly" when you know very well they must consider themselves an Adonis)

So here is our starter for 10...

Butt ugly male (38), paunchy WLTM ex (or current)-lingere model (30-ish), based just around the corner for non-commital sexual relationship in which you will remain completely loyal to me, but I can do what I like. Please reply with photo to Box no 1987. No mingers need apply.

That should do the job...

You can bring yor own beer but no glass

There are several campsites, coded by colours, but I find no common answer as to what each one is like, I suspect this is because one man's nightmare field is another chav mentalists good nite out*. More research required here.

There is a map http://www.virginradio.co.uk/music/vfestival2004/maps.html but it might be a bit out of date...

No sign of pesticide yet

Get there before 4PM Friday to get a good spot (but i'm thinking of comaose by that time...)

A positive rant?

Who said such a thing wasn't possible? Hey baby, anythings possible.

Today I REALLY ENJOYED my cycle to work, and I felt less puffed out than yesterday. Bonus!

Thanks to Mark for revealing the true path to blog enlightenment. Much less ying and yang; more "double yang!".
