Should have gone out for a ride, it's amazing how quickly your conditioning falls away.


I think the aerobic side drops off but sometimes I feel better if my legs have had a week or so off. If I cycle too much (for me) I can feel myself getting hip pain, so I don’t feel guilty for a week or so off occasionally. Just purchased some new leggings.

The question is moot of course - if you look at the bigger picture, SYNTHS SAVED MUSIC.

There - the thread may now be closed.  :D


I like keyboards, ... Nothing wrong with them...in their place...but they also take away a lot of the instruments and musicians they seek to emulate. Call me old fashioned but I'd much prefer to hear and see real backing vocals and harmonies being sung live and brass and woodwind instruments being played.
Last week I had the considerable pleasure of seeing and hearing a Steely Dan Tribute act at the 606 club. There were 14 band members (almost) all on one stage, including a percussionist, three backing singers, a three man horn section and two keyboard players; the band probably could have got away with being a 5 piece but it wouldn't have been half as splendid as it was.

Charity ride next weekend so will be doing a 65 miler come what may.
Should have gone out for a ride, it's amazing how quickly your conditioning falls away. It was a struggle for me today, my uphill is going downhill and the old heart rate is starting to shoot up to higher levels than it did just a few weeks ago.
Still, I managed to get 71 miles in and was surprised that I'd done over 5,000 ft of climbing. Only stuck a couple of "Proper" hills in the ride, just an awful lot of general up and downing. I was surprised by how dry the roads were after the last couple of days of rain, they'd left their mark with all the grit and gravel in the roads though. It was a day of taking care, especially on the country lanes.
It was cold enough today for bib tights and long sleeved jersey, although I could have got away with either bib shorts or a short sleeved jersey. Warms you up climbing up hills.

Forever grateful for the lines ‘you got more rabbit than Sainsbury’s’ which I use on a daily basis.

Chas Hodges is now dodging the responsibilities that come with older age. Sad news.

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"  ;)
