Back again - some cathcing up to do!
I’ve been away visiting relatives in Wales and Kent. With one thing and another, I had no internet access for over a week. But I have been writing, and have lots to talk about. I’ll do this in several focused posts, rather than one long ramble.
One thing I do have to get off my chest right now though is to congratulate El ZappoMan on his astonishing 5,000 bike miles last year. This is what I like - people setting alarmingly scary goals, & then achieving them by keeping focused and putting in the effort when they have to - even if the odds (and the weather) seem to be conspiring them. Rumour has it that this year, he’s getting a kryptonite saddle for his bike to make it even more of a challenge. An example to us all!
