But what better way to start a Sunday then with an online reading catch up and the whole of the 1999 double album via Spotify.

I went out on the Ride of the Slipped Gears Part II mid-morning. I'm now carrying out running repairs and experimenting with the tightness of the gear cable whilst out on the road.
