Gbduro21 - day 8.1
Right, better start thinking about heading down to CP3 to earn my keep. How much am I getting paid again M? I’ll get my reward in hell I imagine…
Trying to decide whether or weather I can be arsed with the 4hr bike ride to Fort Augustus or not. I suppose i should given the environmental kudos I’ve been pushing the last week or so. But it is wet and miserable, and I don’t seem to have the same hard as fuck attitude as I do when I’m actually in bike mode. The car is looking more desirable with every passing minute. Plus my disco slippers are still full of sushi rice from my last adventure out in the Ming…
Anyone else have pong issues with this brand of footwear which you don’t get with others? Seems to linger. Though I don’t think any shoe is designed to be ridden for days on end through the worst and best of weather the British Isles have to offer.
Still, my top tip is a bucket of water, a bottle of Dettol and about 24hrs.
I have to also make a correction from one of yesterday’s blog. I got a row from Alice. At the time of writing she was actually ahead of Jaimi on the stage… Sorry Alice credit where credit is due. Great riding yesterday. However, she’s grubbing you now eh ;-) Karma!
[Edit, I’ve just been giving Alice abuse over IG. She’s so going to smack me…]
I’m having a love-hate relationship with one of our men behind the lens. Dan and I keep on giving each other grief for our tardy time management. I keep getting the bullshit excuse that he’s having to charge the car or he has to do long miles, blah blah blah to find riders. All the while he’s giving me grief for not actually keeping up with events and having the audacity of actually going to bed at a reasonable time. So with that, here are some pictures from my best buddy Tommy.
The hall is booked from 3pm onwards. Angus arrived before many of us were out of our jammies. However, it may have been Angus’s job in the first place to book the various checkpoints along the route originally. So only has himself to blame.
This years event has put years on Dan….
Angus dragging the shitty weather with him as he passes through Strathyre. Cheers boi.
See you at CP3 Dan. Love you lots.
