Now that the Time Trial season is well under way here in the UK, here's a reminder of something you SHOULDN'T do riding a TT, even with the best intentions.

If you've ever read any of Herbie Sykes' books, you'll know what a great writer he is. Like "Maglia Rosa", "Coppi", "The Eagle Of The Canavese", etc.

He has a new book coming out in September and early details are on Amazon already. This book links brilliantly to the several Rouleur pieces he did on the history of cycle racing in East Germany (DDR) and the Peace Race. Cracking stuff.

Plus, I am quite biased as he is a fellow Manchester City fan!

The boy has gone to bed more excited than Xmas Eve and the night before his birthday rolled into one. 

I've put Minecraft on the old Linux laptop.

+Grant Bennett I've been looking at them for a long time and kept putting it off until he's a bit older. I think that will be one for his 9th birthday in October. He can then spend the cold, dark winter nights writing code!

What a crazy day in the EPL League today. Seaswans clinched all three victory points in overtime in New Castle thanks to a massive Boner...

Do you think I've got enough?

I won the Tickety Brew Blonde on Twitter on Thursday via @Browtons, so, as I had to pick up my prize, it would have been rude not to buy some more ale while I was in Browton's. (http://browtons.wordpress.com/).

I then picked up my quarterly wine delivery from +Laithwaites Wine , which goes to my Mother-in-Law's. There's two bottles of each of those!

Beer (the number at the end denotes the order they'll be drank!):
Tickety Brew Blonde 5.8% ABV (brewed locally in Stalybridge) 2
Ramsbottom Craft Brewery "All In" American IPA 5.4% ABV 6
East London Brewing Quadrant Oatmeal Stout 5.8% ABV 5
Brooklyn Lager 5.2% ABV 1
Brightside Brewery Manchester Skyline 4.6% ABV 3
Brightside Brewery Underworld Porter 4.4% ABV 4

Wine:
Saracosa Toscana 2012 (Italy)
Don Cayetano Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 (Chile)
Warburn Estate Shiraz 2011 (Australia)
Paris Street Pinot Noir 2013 (Romania)
Canimo De Seda Jumilla 2012 (Spain)
Chateau Le Coin Bordeaux 2012 (France)

Oh. Yes.

It's great to find this community on here & let's hope it goes from strength to strength. There's a vast wealth of stuff knocking about to do with Rush and I, for one, am looking forward to finding more & more out than I already know.

So, seeing as I'm new to here, here's my set of keys! Ha ha!

Let's have a little read about Bernard Hinault on this Tuesday morning...
The current generation? Overpaid, underarchieving and wrongly-trained. As frank as ever, Bernard Hinault discusses cycling with Graeme Fife.

@usasoccerguy on Twitter lampoons the British football scene. Some people still don't get that it's a parody account. He sells tee shirts for most teams, too.

For instance, Swansea are "Sea Swans", Arsenal the "London Soccer Cannons", Liverpool the "Liver Duck Red Socks" and the best, "Ass Town Vanilla" for Aston Villa.

He uses "New Castle" for Newcastle, but I'd prefer "Nuke Hassle". So, I've just knocked up a dummy tee, just for the Geordies.

What do you reckon? Is it a seller?

We've been eating here for a few years now, even though the Plaza is closer! We get a lot of deliveries from them, too. Always friendly, the food is great and we've never had a bad meal. Highly recommended.
