We are what we eat…

For a considerable time I subscribed and imbibed regular podcasts and playlists. I enjoyed them, but perhaps I was overdosing on ear fodder. There’s listening and there’s gorging… Around the time that some call lent, I stopped the regular ipod on my commute. Initially I missed the stimulating drip of tunes and chatter, the warmth […]

Frustratingly our server & internet is off-line, I’ve made calls, my hot cross bun has been eaten… so… some thoughts: Our recent choir concert at Oakham School Chapel was a great experience!

It must have dropped out of my pannier yesterday!  I got to work […]

Which way would you go? And why?

On my commute yesterday, reluctantly, I had reason to take another trip through suburban leicester rather than my usual rural route, as the crow (or barn owl) flies.You’ll be aware of my previous reaction to the experience of this specific suburban cycling route.  However, having ridden this route again, I still have the same opinions…But I was […]

Velocipeding

I have been cycling to & fro’ work now week-dailysince March, 7 miles each way. My cycling log http://www.endomondo.com/embed/workouts?w=tMNs2h6sPHg&width=950&height=600 At rough tally, I guess I’ve saved 14 miles of fuel a daythat’s ~£1.35×2 for a 7mpl car. That’s ~£54 a month. Hummm…  I have bought a bike & various bits & pieces,which really needs a year […]
