A Momentous Day

It’s been a fairly unprecedented and overwhelming week here at traumfahrrad towers: I have purchased some rollers.

After my utterly soul-destroying experiences with the turbo of doom I decided to see if there might be another way to achieve zen through the medium of indoor cycling. We shall see. It was a timely purchase, judging by the sound of scraping from the car drivers out in the street. I’m going to set them up in the shed next to the Dugasts which have been lined up in order of vintage.

they’re not the only significant new arrival in the house this week.

    Congratulations. Sounds like a challenging week ahead – getting to grips with being a dad and riding on rollers. Good luck!

    But not simultaneously.

    Enjoy your paternity leave 🙂

    Well as long as she won’t be kept in the shed too! Congratulations to you both, and good luck all round.

    Congratulations pj, having just had our daughter on the 4th jan I can say that wk 1 was overwhelming in every way but into wk 2 and things already easier. I even managed to ride my bike. To eastville. To buy some nappies.

    Congratulations! Babies do find loud monotonous noises very soothing, if your shed’s warm enough you might find the rollers will send her to sleep. It’s all for the good of the child, obviously…
