I have been intent on visiting these so-called Roman Lakes for a while. I am aware that these lakes are not genuinely Roman. However, aspects of the area date back to 17th century… Now that I have the day off, I could get the chance to ride up there. I also need to focus on birthdays for next month. I have been up since 3am looking at options. I noticed that Amazon Local is pretty good, for female presents. It’s a shame that the offers were not more family focused. I would like to take my child on holiday too but the offers do not extend that far.

We just had a great walk through Woodbank Park, Stockport. The smell of the wild garlic is wholly amazing and refreshing.
Close proximity and the peleton go hand in hand. Here’s how to keep your kit feeling (and smelling) fresh.
I’ve met people who I wish would try this product - hyperhidrosis is commonplace.
For the last two weeks, I have wanted to participate in the park run. Last week, I needed to take my bike in for repair. This week I needed to take my son for his speech examination. It’s important these days to have a drama backing.
Replaced Rear Hub
With my bike out of action for some of this month, it looks like I’m not going to beat my record for most miles in a month… I was so shocked at the price and the work that needed doing on my bike that I forgot to even log on journey. £92 is quite a sum but I had the whole rear hub replaced on my bike.

After walk over two miles with my bike and Alex, I arrived at the shop. Parts on my bike need replacing and ordering. It’s look like Thursday before I get the bike back. The estimated cost is around £70. I’ll be pleased to be back on the road, as well as riding in the woods.
My Voodoo is out of action
My mountain bike is out of action. Despite implementing suggestions on how to fix it, it is still broken. Tomorrow, I intend to take it to a bike shop to get it fixed. The two mile walk might improve my fitness.
On installation of Web Tools 2012.2 RCI am always a bit dubious of installing anything that is not the final version of a product, but even then I prefer it to be at least service packed before it goes anywhere near my development machine. For anything else, I usually put it on a virtual…
This was released last month. Here are the release notes.
Trans-Pennine Trail from Stockport to Didsbury
After a couple of weeks of leaving the Trans-Pennine Trail alone, we set off to join it around 9AM today. The travelled from Stockport to East Didsbury. We come out at the Didsbury pub. Thereafter, we made out way to the Milson Rhodes. I drank a Roadrunner and a Quantum Brewery beer with my breakfast.
The wind was a little ineffective on the way there. However, coming back was a different story. I was almost blown from my bike by the gusts. I forecast mentioned 30mph winds. These felt considerably stronger. Nonetheless, the fourteen mile around trip was worthwhile. I am tempted to try it again next weekend.
Shortly after arriving back, I took my son out for food at the Blossoms. Having eaten a lot of sirloin steak over the weekend, we opted for the chicken breast option. I have a couple of pints of Hoptimus Prime with mine. Of course, it put me to sleep for three hours.
So, that’s around 58 miles this week and 106 miles for the month. I hope the forecast for my three days cycling to work remains snow and wind free. Let’s see what the weather brings.
