Myself, the blokie and a mate should do about 35 miles tomorrow on a cafe run so with any luck I should be more closer to my target. However shouldn't get too complacent - I had some bad news today which will result in a couple of days down south next week, with a possible weekend in Glasgow the following week I'll have to be careful - I shall need the turbo trainer quite a few times next week.
It's also getting fairly miserable in the morning now - I must stop looking at BBC Weather. Sunrise is at 8.13am. In my rule book when the dark breaches 8 in the morning it's winter. Don't get me wrong - I love the cold, dark nights - it means sitting in pubs with fireplaces, stodge for dinner, fireworks and christmas nights out, also of the occasional silly cycle wrapped up in a blizzard with no cars on the road. In saying that I'm actually against bringing Scotland into european time. It would mean sunset would be 2pm, earlier on some days (it starts getting dark about 3.45pm in the darkest depths of winter). Our school kid would not only get their second break in the dark but they'd still be walking home in it.
Have a good weekend y'all!
