It's pissing it down with rain. Apparently, the majority of the population of Reading is either at Tesco, Toys R Us, Furniture Village or some point in between. I hate junction hoggers and car park stalkers. But I am now home and have coffee.

No chance of getting up motivation to go out on the bike today. We haven't got a decent place under cover to store it, so I'd have to bring it into the hall, where it would drip on to the carpet. And I'd have to re-lube to chain, and that would then drip on to the carpet too. Grrr. Sometimes I wish I still lived in the house in Cambridge.

It stopped raining and I thought I'd be motivated and go out for a quick cycle ride. Somehow or other, and I still haven't fathomed how, my LHS pedal crank bolt is missing, and I noticed a strange wobbling on the pedal when I pushed it... had a look, gave it a shake, and the bolt cover came off, but no bolt. wtf?

so now I have to try and find a replacement pedal crank bolt. it's either that or replace the cranks, argh.

went for desultory plod to try and work off annoyance. amazing how you can block out the cold after a couple of minutes.
