Where Do I Start?



Following Guy's prompt, and my current situation I thought it may be a good time to start a blog.

By situation I mean, that since September I have ridden my bike, oh let me see, once......Well that's not strictly true because I went out today!

You don't tend to realise how much you lose when you don't do much for a few months, it was a real eye opener and very frustrating.

I'd like to go back a few months when some of you may recall me saying that we would be shutting our buisness down just after Christmas. This was due to a lack of a new contract on the horizon from our customer, and this was also creating tensions between myself and my collegue which wasn't pleasant.

This meant that I needed to get our existing orders completed on time, thus meaning not much time on the bike, in fact no time on the bike.

However, about six weeks ago, an enquiry we thought was dead suddenlly came back to life, and since then we have been hard at work producing mock-ups prior to a full prototype over the next few months, with a view to a very large order to follow.

The upside is that we are for the time being, still in buisness, the downside, well, as usual, no time to ride.

Today's ride was short, painfull and depressing. I was so looking forward to getting out and was going to join the others at Rowlands but decided otherwise. A wise decision.

One positive, is that hopefully it will spur me on to trying a bit harder to find the time, I might even have to resort to that instrument of torture........the turbo!

The plan is to get out on New Years day and do a bit more.

One pedal rotation at a time Kent, on the very positive side you do still want to ride the bike.

Hope to see you out a lot more once the contract is secured and you don't have to do any more work :)

Great to here there's a some life left in the business Kent after things looked so bleak earlier in the year.

Take it one ride at a time and try not to get sucked in to chasing others who are fitter than you (if you succeed at this - let me know how you did it!) :)
