How Will I Finish The #May100 ?

Damn You, Cycling!

So far this month, I’ve cycled 89.96 miles, all of them leisure.  I don’t do that commuting lark as I work in a poncy suit in a poncy office and on the only dress-down day we have (Friday), I take my daughter to school which is 6 miles in the wrong direction.

So, What’s The Problem?

I always ride on Tuesday nights, for around 11.28 miles – not that I’m a creature of habit or anything!  Then ever other Saturday, I have the day to myself: I get a few chores done then I have a few hours out, and always hit somewhere between 25 and 30 miles.

No problem.  Until this week.

My schedule would have me do my 11.28 miles tonight and the #May100 would be done, woohoo!

On The Way Back From Tunshill With My Boy Last Friday





Tonight is Tuesday.  Autopilot Loop night.  Tonight, Utility Masters Rovers Of The South United are playing in a football match against the mighty Gazprom (sponsors of Schalke and one of the biggest companies in the universe – but we’re just playing a bunch of chancers from the Manchester office).

So I can’t ride tonight.  “No problem“, I hear you cry, “Just ride over the weekend.”  Well, this weekend I’m off to Llangollen with a friend, white water rafting.  It’s going to be awesome.  But I won’t be riding my bike.

Tomorrow is Wednesday.  Regular footy night with the lads from work.  On Thursday I do the school run and we have a family evening.  On Friday we’re kid-free so it’s couples night.

have to get those 11 miles in!  Now what?  Huh? 🙁

    Good man.

    I can’t take credit for the wisdom of my favourite saying though. I have to hand that to Henry Ford no less.

    Henry Ford, eh? Clever bloke, he was. I reckon I’ll be out next Tuesday, the 31st. It doesn’t leave any contingency but I’ll be reet.
