You may remember earlier on I the year I took great pleasure in mocking Rob as he prepared for his triathlon. The tables have now turned, I now 19 hours until kick off, until the whistle blows. Rob has taken great delight in probing me all day about my impending torture. Me and my Colnago are off to get the train now, wish us luck.


Closed and closing


We closed early last Friday, at half past four to be precise. Rob had a wedding to get to, on a boat on the Thames.

Here is a picture of the wedding party as they passed some of London’s finest landmarks.

You are probably thinking ‘why is the man on the right sporting a white turban with a flower attached and a pair of white plastic framed sunglasses at a wedding’.

I thought that to.


In a few weeks we will be closing for a week or 2. We closed last year around late September for or a week or 2, and Rob went to Italy.; nowt that grand this year, not with the recession on, just a few days in a one man canoe down the Thames estuary this year. He is also hoping to take the 149 down to London Bridge and talk the riverside walk to Embankment beach (or La Playa d’embankment, as we have aptly named it), dip his toes in the river, and have a nice ice cream and a relax.

Please keep your eyes peeled on the website for definite closing dates.If you are in need of repair work I would look to getting it booked in a.s.a.p.

If you are after getting a bike I recommend you come down and have a look as soon as you get chance; due to imminent Thames sailing trips Rob will be easy to barter with as he will want some cash for packed lunches and train fares.
