180 !!

Recommended Posts

No not that 180 but it's been 180 days since i last rode a bike so today I needed to put that right.

@Slowlycatchymonkey  said the weather was going to be fab but it bloody wasn't when I left home at 11.30 am , i couldn't see in front of my face and it didn't get any better for a while..............

Anyway, perhaps her forecast was right because as I got nearer to her manor the sun started to poke it's head through the fog.  By time I got to Chew Valley lake it was lovely............

and the various birdies were enjoying it as well...................

I rode up over the Mendip hills and down through the old rode into Wells where it was starting to get positively balmy.  From there I rode on to Shepton Mallet where I stopped to have a gander at the old prison,  I have actually been in there about 38 years ago but not as a guest of her majesty you understand............

From there I took the Frome road but stpped at Doulting to have a sandwich and a coffee from my flask .  While I was there I got a phone call from my mate Big Tone and we agreed to meet up for a coffee at Farrington Farm.  I stopped to say hello to this lot on the way in .............

and then we sat in a strange sort of hobbit house for our coffee, Tone is one big hobbit at 6' 4'' tall   🤪

From there it was a short 18 miles back home .  It was great to be out riding again and I may get to repeat the exercise again on Saturday 👍

Thats great news 😊 although Im a tiny bit sour as Id planned to go over the mendips today til flaticus battricus decided otherwise! I did say it would probably be wrong and stay foggy til midday, you gotta read the full prediction 😆 

I didnt know there was a prison at Shepton Mallet, so is it just a visitor centre full of empty rooms?

Bet it felt great to be out after all that time. How’s the legs now?

The photo shows the original prison which is a tourist attraction nowadays, the modern prison is next door but I'm not sure if it's still used.

My leg feels pretty good, gear-changes were ok and I got home to find out that they can re-fit my original socket tomorrow so that should be much better .

Not so sure about that, I can tell you that you've definitely got to get your balance right.

Well @Buckster seems to think he's a fanny magnet, perhaps @Sir Fallsalot is a leg(less) magnet

I know one, as well.  One hell of an offroad rider on a GS, too.   You can see him in his part time work on the Netflix series -  Another Life, Season 2.

It’s true that I am incredibly well hung but I don’t like to brag.
