+1 to this. Happy Birthday stapfam. Remember, you aren't old until the Queen sends you a letter. Of course, it should be a King by then..

Was hoping I would get away with this one. It should have been a long ride today but due to my fitness- or lack of it- The weather co-operated and I chose the day to give the bike a treat by washing it.

Tomorrow though and I have an early start-for me- and only a 15 miler planned ride with the local club but it will finish up as at least half my age.

Many thanks for all the birthday wishes but I will admit that the birthday ride did not happen yesterday. I went to the Gym on Thursday and I ache--even now. Even more so today as my club has re-commenced the Monday night rides as they were so popular-but on Sunday. Just got back from the 15 mile ride and with travelling to it and back- I have done 26 miles. Shows how unfit I am though- 15 miles at 15mph and I struggled. Think I will switch on the TV now and act my age and rest my eyes for a couple of hours.
