Report card: Could do better

I’ve had another of those readership spikes (263!) but this time  it’s not completely obvious which blog entry they read, though it seems likely to one of those where I was discussing cycling near Eze. Possibly people planning a week end break in the area – who knows.

Good enough to eat

I was hoping to illustrate this post with some fine photographs, taken by my beloved, of my club mates, our sponsors and a couple of pro-riders (Amael Moinard and Andrei Mizurov) enjoying the Galettes des Rois yesterday evening. Sadly, his photos were not up to scratch. This has left me in something of a quandary as I also needed a photo to illustrate my article for Nice Matin. I’m now going to have to ask my fellow club mates if any of them have photos which fit the bill. I knew I should have taken my camera too.

Mizu and ex-M le President

Many of my fellow cyclists remarked on how much they had seen of my beloved recently, noting that it’s very rare for him to be at home for this length of time. They also expressed their concerns as to how I was coping with this. I replied that I was bearing up well despite insane provocation.   

The evening went well. We had a good turnout of members and their families with everyone enjoying the selection of galettes, the mince pies, the Xmas cake and the Rocky Road. I took a couple of the remaining few slices of Xmas cake down to my LBS where it was enjoyed in record time by the owner, his assistant and a local rider.

Monday and Tuesday were cold but sunny. We rode for a couple of hours both days. But it started raining late last night and continued well into this morning. I really don’t need to ride outside in the rain. After a quick session this morning in the gym, this afternoon I cleared a few administrative matters relating to the club. The outlook for the rest of the week thankfully looks clear ahead of the defence on Sunday of our regional title at Beausoleil. M Le President will be working, so I have been entrusted to rally the troops. Woe betide anyone who turns up without their licence!
