    Lovely morning today. Bright sunshine in a cloudless sky, and that fantastic freshness you get in
    such weather after heavy rain. So I put on tracksuit and trainers, and went out to enjoy a
    morning ride on the moors - sticking to made tracks where my wheels won't be damaging the ground
    in soft mud.

    It was a fantastic ride up the moors, stopping to sit and just enjoy the day. Near the top of the
    route is a couple of miles where the gravel gets lost under mud a few times, so I got a little
    splashed, and one innocent-looking patch of mud sucked in the front wheel and threw me (it was far
    too small to get both wheels). Yo!

    But also at the top, I could see the heavy rainclouds coming in, already over my home. And just as
    I came down into Princetown, the heavens opened: hard, driving rain. Blinding, finger-numbing rain,
    just as I hit the downhill I had to slow right down. A moment later, hailstones were settling on
    the tracksuit. Now at this point I was regretting not having brought gloves, coat or even fleece.
    Aaargh ....

    Still, it showed beautifully the value of a good paunch. Though the skin was cold to the touch, the
    body - apart from the hands and eyes - felt no discomfort. This is self-evidently the healthy state
    for a human body in a temperate climate!

    Wear your paunch with pride!

    Pah! students.

    Don't you worry, by the time you're in your 30's you will no doubt have one.

    And it'll be one of your most durable cycling accessories, staying with you no matter how many 1000s
    of miles you do.

    Consider marketing it: the "camelfront." Purchasers receive a case of beer and three dozen
    large pies.

    Sounds excellent! Put me down for a family membership (even though there's only me).

    doubt) will be interested, where do I sign up :)
