Tyre-Savings

After a recommendation from a person I know who has better bikes than mine I recently purchased some Schwalbe Marathon Plus Smartguard Rigid tyres for my bike. It hurt a little bit spending around £25 per tire when I paid it but seeing as the previous tyres I had lasted about 150 miles and I had been using the bus for a couple of weeks before hand I realised I had to do it.

However, on the way to work this morning, I did some quick maths… slowly. Because I don’t do anything quickly when I’m cycling to work. With the bus journeys costing me at least £4.30 per day, having used the bike with the new tyres for two weeks I have already saved £43 in bus fares. Which means as of Tuesday next week I will be making a profit from cycling to work.

That’s how money works, right?

July

July was supposed to be my first Triathlon effort.

I didn’t do it. I decided my disappointment at doing it badly was going to be bigger than my disappointment at not doing it at all. I wasn’t using the thing as motivation to train, it was just making me feel bad about not training.

Right choice.

Next time.

Empty Chair

Today has been a feeling of empty. Made worse just now by being the only one left in an office waiting for a Windows update to finish.

This is the feeling. We’ve said goodbye to a couple of members of the BeyondPR team this week, and today is the day that hit home. Mostly because it’s the first day without them.

Today has been a feeling of empty. Farewell…
