6am NRR:
There were two incidents this morning that bear noting. The first was DK rudely riding past the bunch at speed (flipping my off in the process) while I was happily playing the little ring game. The resulting extra speed as the bunch jumped for his wheel corresponded directly to a jump in my required cadence, and thus I went from happily, to thinking DK is a jerk.

The second incident relates, it started because I couldn't let DK be a jerk all by himself, no, I shall not be out jerked. So I hatched a plan to jerk the entire bunch.... a plan to chick the entire bunch. Nic Whitburn was rolling through on a rare appearance and I cajoled her into committing to the sprint. With her sitting on my wheel my next job was to convince others to pull turns in the lead out train. It amused me greatly all this scheming, and I was back to being in a glorious mood by the golden mile. Sadly it was not to be, lights at the canal completely spoilt the party. When I sat up and looked around from my sweaty perch at the front of the train, I discovered that Nic only had two gents left on her wheel. Even if she got out kicked, she would have still chicked all bar 2 blokes and I would have giggled all day thinking of the shattered egos.

Next time Gidget, next time.
