Someone woke up in a Deep Blue Funk today, and it was me. Severely loaded under the weight of responsibility and the prospect of two full months of frantically trying to rescue a work project that is already so late that it is starting to decompose, when all I want to do is go climb mountains, head off on the motorbike, sail around Scotland... anyway, I was a right grumpy git, and the only answer was to abuse my lunch break 1 hour window with a nice long cycle.

I pumped up the tyres to 115psi and within 10 minutes was regretting it. Gods, the roads around Dunblane are cr*p. By the time I'd cycled along the back road to Ruskie, my teeth had all jarred out. Then I hit the Aberfoyle/Thornhill road. Dear. God. An obstacle course of craters, gravel, cars whose suspension had collapsed and, of course, lovely Autumn muck all over the "road". By the time I got home, I think that three of my lower discs had compacted into one.

Ah. Great to be back out on the bike. I hear that Lance Armstrong is ditching his zimmer and signing up to do Le Tour again next year. Well, if he thinks he's going to win, he'll have to beat ME first hahahahahaha!!
