This is a shot of me cycling by Tim fisher, I think it was at the top of the climb
Did a shoot with my friend and his ducati yesterday, first time my new nikon got its legs stretched
Tbh I’m not really happy with how I performed but this picture is still actually quite cool I guess
I had my first ever open road race today and it was alright, felt pretty good the whole way through but didn’t know it was the last lap so I didn’t go for the sprint, I honestly reckon I could’ve placed in at least top 10 if I’d known because I was putting in no effort at all. Damn oh well, learned so much, like how dangerous the back of a pack of 70 riders can be!! and inefficient. It was real fun though and such nice weather
^ what a disgracee
I just got Instagram and my name on it is flannol. I used to hate it and think that anybody who used it was a complete hipster but now I’m so obsessed I’m doing the 365 challenge with it
Realistically there’s no way I can do one picture every day, but as long as I get 365 by 28th april 2014 i’m cool
I have this box of cards, and it was my grandads birthday
I think it worked
All hail gaffa tape
Someone said to me a couple of days ago that I should be a doctor. I think they believed that it would be an ‘easy life’ because they “don’t do much” … that stupid thinking aside I have actually at some point given it a bit of thought. I would probably make an alright doctor but I’d much rather be a surgeon, I think that would suit me a lot better. But anyway I don’t really want to be either, I’d prefer being on the other side of things, helping prevent people from needing to see a doctor in the first place.
I’ve just started reading a book which has been on my amazon wishlist for about two years now called Another Day In The Frontal Lobe (I shouldn’t need to give an explanation?) and I’m only one chapter in but it’s pretty interesting, and, really, exactly what I expected. I find it really captivating reading or listening to other people who have dedicated themselves to a profession; they always seem to be the most interesting people, those who have found a purpose for themselves other than merely just existence. Now that goes pretty much completely against what religion (Buddhism) says about life (that you should want to live, just to live) - I think that’s a complete waste. I think that there is no reason not to find a point for yourself in this day and age, where there are far too many humans on the planet; you might aswell make a use of yourself instead of just wasting our planet’s limited space and diminishing resources.
There’s this track that goes round the outside of letchworth which is 13 miles long (only max. 2 miles of which are on road) and I have been riding round it for years not really knowing how it all linked up and feeling sure that there was more of it than I’d seen. So last night at about 1am I actually looked at the route guide on the internet and…. well it all made sense.
I wanted to ride it this morning, and I did.
There was dust. DUST on the trail. Here is proof:
That smudge was my finger. Guess dry weather is set to stay
Instadramatic. Not sure how the computer worked out it was 10 laps though? I’ll do it manually next time. It was four. Not really that impressed with my time, I thought I could do better tbh. My next thing is 5 laps in 4 hours, that’s going to be my first big goal.
Now it’s time for lunch and I’m eating properly again
Smoked spicy mackerel and carrots and a smoothie with I think berries, a load of greens and a banana. That fish sounds really posh but it isn’t and it’s cheap but it’s the most tasty thing you can imagine; I had it once at this lunch thing and I couldn’t believe you could have so much flavour in just one thing.
