Yesterday we continued Cerys’s bicycle training with a bit more balance practice and the introduction of pedals. Continue reading How do you ride a bike? Part 2
It’s been an exciting week in Pebble-land:
- RunKeeper for iOS got updated to use the Pebble watch as a second display.
- We received our second consignment of Pebble watches; we currently have 6 to sell. They are all black.

I completed the Isle of Wight Randonnée on Sunday. When I completed the course three and a half years ago I had to walk up the two steep ramps just before the floating bridge at the finish in Cowes, so I felt that I had been defeated by the route. This time I feel justified in posting my completion certificate:

Yesterday I began to teach Cerys how to ride a bicycle. I was not confident that I could do this, so I did a lot of research and planning instead of just winging it.

I got my first delivery of Pebble watches this morning; this batch is already sold except for one which is slated for our development purposes. Unfortunately the development opportunities are slightly limited because the current SDK does not yet allow for communication with apps on the iPhone.

Every minute’s insult is unique so if you manage to memorise all the insults you can indeed use it to tell the time.
You can download it from this link, perhaps.
Cerys and I bought a blank snowboard each and have been painting them for the last few weeks. I finished mine last night and lacquered it this morning. Continue reading Snowboard Art
As I mentioned in an earlier post, I bought a secondhand set of Campagnolo Zonda wheels from eBay with the intent of using them for special occasions and continuing to train on my existing wheels. Continue reading Campangolo Zonda Wheels: Good
