I was on at 2 seconds past 9.Bad luck and try again on Friday?
So was I but kept getting either server busy or being offered allocation that when chosen oddly wasn't available anymore......
Will probably have another go Friday but can't see it being any easier.

We always look out for him....we call him the "Wicker Man". He's surrounded by an industrial estate these days....

Did you ever see the concrete camels on the RHS, just a couple of miles further down the road. Sadly gone.

Both knees feeling a bit less debilitated today. Left work early to do a Belton run, since I haven't been over that way for quite a while.

Didn't think I'd get a chance to go for a ride with my legs out again this year, but summer is back! If not quite the real deal, then a decent tribute act. Warm out there, and sunny.

Entered the garage to find two dead mice, one of them really small. A juvenile I think. A bit sad. But better a snap trap than a cat or a hawk or something. I've bodybagged them and reset the traps. Looked to have been rather quick as usual.

Disappointingly, I somehow took a wrong turn on one of my oldest and most established routes. I briefly considered continuing on to Diseworth and coming back the old way from Donington, but thought better of it and backtracked. I'd added about a mile to my ride, nothing serious.

Top Brand used to be a shocking boneshaker of a road coming south, but a metre-wide strip of the east side of the road has been resurfaced over the bad, crumbly bits and it's a joy to roll along now. Back just before sunset.

I took a Garmin watch along with my Soleus GPS this time, just to confirm my previous finding, determined by comparison with the Android Strava app, that the Soleus exaggerates distances.

The Garmin and my magnet-driven bike computer agreed very closely - the Garmin measured the distance done as 17.02 miles, whereas the bike computer made it 17.019 - only a fewyards of difference over 17 miles. The Soleus claimed 17.37.

I probably calibrated the bike computer to the same Garmin watch so it can be discounted as an authority in this contest, but Google Maps and the Strava app also agree with the Garmin. So there's no doubt that the Soleus does award unearned distances. Shame as it's a convenient watch with an intuitive layout showing time of day alongside distance done.

Anyway - nice to know the bike computer doesn't need recalibrating.

That's five in a row on the X, and 52 this month.

I'm sure I've done this before, but: Foreign people speaking perfectly understandable English on TV programmes who are subtitled. It's so condescending, especially when being done by C4!!!!!





It's laughable... I think most beauty products contain 'Madeupnameium'...... What is an 'Active Fruit Lipozome' or 'Pro-Natura-Plus' ..... Load of old tosh!!!
