a place between somewhere and nowhere
Went to make appointment with dentist

Me: I damaged my teeth and need an appointment earlier than my next check up
Reception: no, no vacancies before your next check up but any cancellations, we'll let you know
Me: thanks, I'm having difficulty eating drinking
Reception: what do you think is wrong.
Me: I chipped two teeth in a collision with a calf along with other injuries.
Reception: we have a vacancy on 24th July

Must have had the cancellation while I was on the phone *hmmmm*

Just took a beauty of a 50k spin round the lakes of Killeshandra. Feel great.

The trip to Dublin in September is looking likely

Have a couple of mates coming to visit from the states in October and they're into biking so can anyone please give me some advise on

1. Where they could rent some bikes. He's 6'4'' so would need a tall one

2.. They're looking to go on either "a day road cycling tour or self-guided tour," in the Dublinish area. Anyone have any thoughts?

Cheers

I often see a bike tour operating around merrion square. They wear blue bibs and seem to have a group of around 20 or so. Think I saw something on Nationwide about the same group. Give them a google. Must be something on there about them. I'd have no clue where you can hire a bike in Ireland. There was supposed to be a place at the parkgate st gate of the phoenix park but that's all gonna be fucked up with the geriatric electric picnic that's happening there this month.

Well that's it. No more hybrid bike for me. I done and gotted a proper road bike that I couldn't afford to get, or not get, depending how you look at it. It's some sort of Giant bike.
Got in the second hand section of the Cycle Superstore in Tallaght. Seemingly it was bought a few years ago by some lad on the bike to work scheme who never even used it once. Fully loaded with speedo computer thing etc. I don't buy that sales pitch for a second but the thing was obviously never used.
