Laps of the Pool

18 Jul 2007 at 13:00 Filed Under:
Rainfall

Guess what time I went out on my ride?

Within 4 seconds of setting off the rain started to fall, by the top of the road I was putting my arm warmers on, 4 mins later I had wet feet, 25mins in I'd had enough of sliding around the roads, 27mins in the road was now a river and I couldn't see anything... this pattern continued as I did 4 laps of the local area to at least make the ride longer than 25miles.

How far I actually went remains a mystery at the moment as at around 55mins my bike computer drowned.

Is it wrong to be politically incorrect when you're about to be run over?

That was my thought after calling a Rover driver a F--king Spastic (amongst other things) and he decided that getting home to watch Countdown was more important than ACTUALLY LOOKING TO SEE IF THERE WAS ANY ONCOMING TRAFFIC BEFORE TURNING RIGHT. Moron.. I think I also displayed an effective way of connecting profanities the people coming out of the co-op in Adlington - sorry, but I was slightly angry about almost being assassinated.
I am sure if the bullet that blew though JFK's head had actually just ruffled his hair he'd have done the same. That's the second Rover in 3 weeks to almost squash me, and both times I wasn't doing anything illegal (for a change) - so Rover drivers now go on the list with 4x4 drivers and Mums doing the "School Run"
