Did my first short spin on the new bike last night, just on roads around Sutton Coldfield Town. Seemed disjointed, just one of those nights where every traffic light was red, but generally it felt nice. Need to get it fitted properly, was getting a little "numb" below towards the end, but no hand or wrist pain which is good.

It felt very, very comfortable when I was down in the drops as well, which bodes well for Cambridge.

Bloody Strava stole 0.2 off my average speed as well, Garmin had me at 19.3 mph average off the wheel recording

Quite numbing. Last night I was looking through photos I'd taken at the MEN four years previously exactly, May 22nd 2013. Went to bed early and woke up to horrible news from the same place.

Of course we think of the Paris attacks, and the Westminster attack, and the attack in Nice. Yet news like this is commonplace in the Middle East, and we barely register it.

Listening to radio4, Keith. Here are some of the reasons that these feckers will never win...

"Taxi drivers coming from Liverpool to offer free lifts back to the city"
"Hotels & private citizens offering free rooms"
"People turning up at the arena to offer water & food to support workers and victims"

feck you, c***s.
It's been really heartwarming to read of how people have quickly reacted in the wake of this atrocity.  It's just heartbreaking.  As a Dad and a regular concert goer this really does break my heart.  Will never forget those that died here and will be paying my respects properly when I'm next in Manchester.

My heart goes out to those hurt. So many young lives taken or scarred for life.
We, in the Netherlands, haven't been hit yet on this scale but I am sure we will not be spared. All I can say is that I will never let anyone break me or my will to do what I want.
I am born free, in a free country and I will defend my freedom by living my life the way I want to.

Off to see Kiss tomorrow eve...

Stay safe

Yes - sometimes words don't seem to exist to articulate such atrocities.
Not only does it hit home more because we are all regular gig goers but for them to target such an audience as they did is just beyond comprehension......

So, woken up to the news that a terrorist attack on the MEN has killed 22 and injured "scores"

There are kids amongst the victims

I was at a gig myself last night. I saw mates in the pub and made it home safely with no more inconvenience than a slightly delayed train.

I've been to the MEN twice to see Rush, as I suspect have many others on here.

I'm off to see Maiden on Saturday at the O2....

I can't really articulate any more.
