Pepperell on an impressive run. Very unlucky to not get a captain's pick for the Ryder cup.
Garcia under huge pressure to justify his spot

Yep, I thought Woods was finished as a force to be honest. Not a fan though, and confident he'll never match or beat Jack's majors record.
There was a pice on Sky about that yesterday....they reckon he has six years left in him at the top level, so 24 attempts....might be worth a few quid at the bookies  ;)

Left work a little early and set off to do a decent length Twycrosser. I hadn't planned it exactly but thought that taking in Packington and the top and Sibson at the bottom would give me 28 miles or so. In fact I arrived home on 27 exactly according to my GPS watch, or 26.99 according to Strava.

Actually I think my Soleus GPS watch might be a bit dishonest. I've noticed that it exaggerates distances compared to bike computers that I've calibrated fairly carefully on more than one bike. I've just checked actually using the route planner on Strava, and that seems to agree with my bike computer, and not the watch. So apparently I'm GPS-doping my distances. I got about .4 miles for free this time.

Lovely out there in the late afternoon sun, and not too cold. Beautiful just before sunset. I saw a huge V formation of ducks, or Canada geese or whatever they were, flying toward the setting sun just south of Barton in the Beans.  They've resurfaced a really rough patch of the road just outside a farm there as well, which is nice. And they've taken away the disused phone box that was covered in algae.

Getting dim when I arrived home, and I didn't have lights. No trouble seeing the road but I probably wasn't as visible as I should have been.

More on Thursday, I hope.

That was the longest distance I've done since 12th May, though not by much.

Well, that was quick - it's arrived.

There's no back-print though. :-\
I should return it, but not sure I can be arsed for the sake of £5.99.

Amazing ride out tonight with an incredible setting sun, Dartmoor and Exmoor on the horizons.The temperature dropped noticeably during the ride and was quite chilly by the end.

Never seen them and never been to Slane, so may correct both of those next June.

David Davis' speech at Leave Means Leave - extremely statesmanlike and commendably direct.

And to Macron: "If you think you can bully our country, what I would do is recommend you read some history books"  ;)


Playing to the home crowd (as was Macton in sll probability), adding nothing to the debate except belligerence. Pointless, both the speech and David Davis in general..
