Arse.

At the winter Olympics all the Jockos have been complete and utter chokers. Why can't these XV be?

Out today in the biting wind, Garmin stopped working after about 5 miles just shutting down (i recharged the battery when i got home but it seemed to be full, so not sure what happened). Had to stop and use the Strava app on my phone for what was left of the ride. Ice patches higher up and i noted my brake pads were worn very far down (winter riding i guess). Clear skies and a lack of birdlife today, replaced my brake blocks when i got home.

Hope you feel better tomorrow James. It may be cold and blowy out there, but it's nice when the sun's out and the roads are dry.
Unfortunately I can't go out tomorrow as it's Mrs S's Auntie's 90th birthday. I've told her that velominati rule #11 is: The family doesn't come first, the bike does; but I got a stern glare :(
I got a ride out today though. I thought I'd go up a road I'd only been down a couple of tines before. I knew there were a couple of steepish bits, but thought they wouldn't be as bad going the other way. I checked them out on Plot-a-Route and that showed nothing more than 16% for a brief period. I don't know how accurate the inclinometer on  my Garmin is, but that was showing 19% well before I'd even got to the 16% bit, I got 22% at the 16% bit. That's a route not to take again then.
One thing I've noticed this past three days is how busy the roads have been, I've never known them as busy, even on a bank holiday in the Peaks, and it's always when you could least do with it being busy. Sod's law.
I did see birds other than crows today - seagulls and wood pigeons - and heard sparrows and great tits, there were few LBJs on Beeley Moor, but that's it.
