Weekending 15 Aug 2010

Not much to report ride wise with too much going trying to get the house ready for central heating installation. The mess this makes is unbelievable, don’t let anyone tell you old houses have character they can be just as badly built as the modern stuff but without the benefit of building control.
Wednesday: Evening spinning class at the Oval, hot and as hard as you make it. Four first times in the class meant it was late starting.
Decided to forego the latest offer of redundancy ( I wouldn’t get it anyway) and ride out another recession.
Turned 51 last week and the thought of having to work another year until 66 or worse by the time this mob have finished does not appeal.
Thursday:  If you want to improve the suction of your Dyson by about 100% for no cost: Remove the washable filter. Sucks up most small debris until almost full and thats a lot of dirt. Motor is sealed against wear. People throw stuff away for less than this.
Finished the Bay Windows, looks great but I wouldn’t want to go through it again. A cheaper option  would propably be look just as good without the man hours involved.
Hot water tank removed so there is no going back.

  1. Hi Frank,
    I recently posted on cyclosport, asking if anyone has last year,s wild wales challenge route as a GPX file for the garmin 705, and I had one reply putting your name forward, suggesting you might be able to help, I did the ride last year, and wouldn’t mind giving it another go this coming bank holiday, can you possibly help.



    1. Hi Mark,
      I think I’ve posted the Course on GarminConnect, I don’t seem to remember riding it as a GPX. I’ve signed up for the Eureaka anniverary ride this year in it’s place. I hope the weather is better for you as this ride put the Wild into Wales.
      Boy was it bleak.
      I’ll get back to you with a link if you can’t find it.
