Cross training Thursday 1st December

  • Back to it this week. Given the upcoming Regionals, and because I can still improve it, I was going to do some slow cornering practise this week, with the usual warm up training races in between.

  • Silly season has started. It's our first Xmas party, one I would normally swerve, but we are gonna take advantage of the hospitality.

  • I was going to say don't get too carried away otherwise it'll affect your racing. But no need.

  • So true.

  • I'm in.

  • Could be the last beer in the Grape and Grain as we know it. The current landlord's lease ends on Sunday and it's set to become a 'spoons.

  • nooooooooooooo.

  • Nooooooooooooo!!

  • Best pub in Crystal Palace by far.

  • I'm sorry for your loss

  • Bah!

    It will still suit beers after training, but that is a sad loss.

  • It does look nice. We should organise a trip there. Quickly.

  • I don't drink in no spoons.

  • Breaking news - according to the Grape and Grain Twitter account, they landlord is carrying on for another month or so, into the new year.

  • I bet 'spoons realise that an eternal 'closing down sale' of what sounds like a decent pub is actually a good marketing ploy, and especially so over the Christmas period.

  • Wait. So even though it's not a Spoons. It is a spoons. Does that mean spoons are getting my money?

  • Indirectly, yes. The freehold is owned by Spoons, but the current lease is held by the existing landlord, who presumably pays Spoons his lease money each month.

  • Yes, it's emotionally challenging. Given that 'spoons contributed £96k to 'Leave' according to the Electoral Commission paying them money poses an ethical dilemma.

  • No show tonight, I ain't riding in the cold and dark on my own.
