I have today:

  1. Made extensive and careful enquiries with the Inland Revenue to ensure that yes, I really am up-to-date, that there are no nasty surprises around the corner, and that they really do owe me several thousand pounds; I subsequently wrote a brief letter to said government agency, requesting said refund.
  2. Ordered a stupidly expensive but unbelievably slick road/commuting bike.

Try as I might, I just can’t see any connection between these two events. Ahem.

The bike in question:

Ridgeback Genesis Day 2

Yes John, I’m aware that it appears to have rather fewer spokes than seems reasonable. And yes, this does worry me, traditionalist that I am. But it’s unbelievably fast and – shock – there’s one in the country in my size, which is more than can be said for any other model. Seriously.

  1. will that be the solid tyre then? Ah, when they mend the roads the ride will be more comfortable, in the meantime may I recommend gutta-percha.
