Happy New Year

Blogging in bed is hardly the best way to celebrate the New Year and 2019, but I’ve got a chest infection and coughing feels like I’ve swallowed a set of knives!

 

2018 had its ups and downs, but here’s hoping that 2019 will be the best (and last) ‘teen that we see for some time…

Virtual cycling

Well, an indoor cycle trainer, a couple of Wahoo sensors and some Apps on my iPhone.  About as close to virtual cycling as I’m going to get!
