I was going to delete this ^ thinking it had no place in a cheery thread but then I thought, no ... perhaps knowing that CM is having a bad day might be enough to cheer others up :wink:

Nothing too bad I hope Tim.
Home. Liquid therapy. Better.

Let my fury make others cheer more sweet by contrast :cool:

We're watching crap telly with a couple of beers and a chinese, and tomorrow we're off to the Peak district (Bakewell) for a decent walk and pub lunch, then stopover in the van, walk, then I think I can ride home. Weather permitting it should be a perfect weekend.

Just was in the beautiful town of Solothurn and visited one of Switzerland's bigger bike exhibitions.
I'm going to get myself a long and fast 29er with some 150 mm rear suss soon. Tested some hot hot candidates on a fun little DH section.

Met good people behind little brands like Stoll and Bold.

Good way to start the weekend. By all the testing and talking I forgot beer though. Soon home, soon beer.

Well, I had a furniture removal Tuesday, back down the road Wednesday am for 2.5 days cleaning of old house for hand back and won't get 'home' until tomorrow evening (and there's a whole load of unpacking still to be done...

If it's still nice out on Sunday I'm breaking out the Sherpa for a couple of hours riding. And then I guess I better make sure I'm ready for starting my new job on Monday.

Cheery Friday my arse... :wink:

ETA: drinking wine from a tumbler, man I'm so classy....

Train tickets brought for Jennride. Good job I went for the single change each way, or there would be six more :o

30 km ride to Rugby station to check the route. 45 km ride back with an extended canal pub stop whilst a heavy shower passed through :grin:

Odd, how straightaway both you and Jase associated 'grinder' with a homosexual dating site rather than an industrial tool. :geek:
