Last night we had a go at the quiz down at the Barleycorn in Scholes. I remember the days when we used to be glad to scrape half the score of the winners — this time a fairly impressive 28 put us considerably closer to the winning 35 (remember this is a pub where our group at least halved the average age). Not long now, soon we’ll be regular winners…

Yesterday saw the legendary Tad Run being completed in excellent style by a number of us. We started at the Falcon for a bit of lunch (the usual Brit doesn’t do food on a Monday), and working an interesting route around to finish at the Angel in plenty of time. All in all, a very respectable Run, with minor closing hiccups being dealt with promptly!

Today saw my change from 26″ to 20″ biking — with a purchase of an Onza T-Mag Spec 2 from Aire Valley Cycles. Managed to scuff the frame a little within the first two hours, so maybe an Armourdillo is required. Also bought some nice shin pads, but it was too hot to wear them, so when my foot (inevitably) slipped off the pedal, I got a few more marks on my shin!

It now seems that the server is back up and running rather well.
