Busy, busy week inc C2C training

Its been a very busy week and i have never stopped.
Monday - was a rest day from the bike but got caught up with a load of jobs around the house afte work
Tuesday - got finished slightly early so hit the tracks on the Beargrease. Overcast evening but still warm. Stopped local and had a good blast around covering 25miles & 1250ft climbing.
Wednesday - the sun was back out so took the road bike out for a blast around the hills of Tow Law and surrounding area 36miles 3500ft climbing
Thursday - legs were tired so back on the Beargrease for a steady 16mile loop from Meadowfield and just under a 1000ft of climbing.
Friday - raining and a rest day but decided to go out for a meal on the night. We had not been to the Chilton Moor for over a year and knew it has had a tart up / new menu. Booked a table in advance and plonked ourselves down. Menu had a cracking choice of all kinds of food and prices werent too bad. Even better as we had the choise of two mains for £12 because we ordered before 6.30pm. Combo starter was excellent. Along wait for the main but it was worth it. Four plates full for food and very tasty. Kids had ice cream to wash it all down and four rounds of drinks as well, total bill just under £44 - bargain - defo be going back there again.
Saturday - just been paid and no food or drink in the house so off to Morrisons - nearly 3hrs later and spent £260 ! but that did inc £50 derv for the van. Arran had his School Summer Farye on the pm - spent a small fortune but had a great afternoon.
Sunday - time for C2C training. Got dropped off at Nenthead. Cold, windy & overcast but by the time we climbed out of Rockhope (the offroad way) and onto the Moor the Sun was out. Got a cracking tail wind down the Waskerley. Rocker was under our tyres in no time. Cracking 52.5mile ride and planning the middle leg of the training route now - probably Threlked to Nenthead next

This weeks brown box deliveries inc a Ice Toolz crown race remover tool. I was sick of messing around with old screwdrivers & hammer etc over the years and was time to get the proper tool. I ordered this one  from BikeTart as it has 36% off and free delivery. It landed within a few days and there was a voucher code for another 10% and future orders - click on the photo for the code if you want to order anything. Not used it yet but Ian D has one and he recommended it.  

The heaviest box of week was this beauty. More on it next week but here is link to the watch - creative watch company Many thanks to David Cooke for the excellent sales service.
