    I watched the first one of the Apprentice last night on iPlayer. What a bunch of plonkers. How can they go on about being taken seriously in business with a straight face?

    They're about as clueless as most agents, and that's saying something.

    For anyone who watched Supervet on C4 tonight the main vet (apart from Noel) in the show was Jeremy - the guy who operated on Mille.

    Right,

    Thats next years "event" rides sorted out.

    Headlines for 2018 will be a return bash at London-Edinburgh-London, and the Mersey Roads 24hr TT.

    It's also a qualifying year for Paris-Brest-Paris in 2019 so will be aiming to get a some 400km and 600km Audax rides in as well.

    Luckily there are a couple of CTC clubs near me that each organise their own series of Audax rides, so have plenty to choose from.

    Plan is for 1 per month

    3 x 200 km
    2 x 300km
    2 x 400km
    1 x 600km
    Mersey Roads 24hr
    LEL 1400km
    1 x 600km

    Got another 200km lined up for December.

    In between will be building the miles back up again on the weekends and hitting the turbo during the week.

    Might look into getting some proper coaching as well, aimed at the 24Hr TT as thats a different beast to the usual ultra-distance / endurance riding. I know I can ride for 24 Hrs, but can I do it "fast"?

    How many are agents this time?


    They always have at least one recruitment or estate agency.

    best one was my new job I had a really nice agent, nothing was too much trouble she helped a lot.

    2 weeks after I started she rocked up as a new hire.

    Agents are nice out of their natural habitat.

    Back at the hotel, having treated myself to a ride on the Piccadilly line

    Suppose I ought to get to sleep, given that I'm supposed to be here for this conference and it starts at - unbelievably - 9am

    That's actual talks-start-time; registration is from 8am. It's in the centre of London, FFS, nobody will get there on time if it starts that early

    As I'm in Holborn and it's at the Royal Society of Arts, just beyond the other side of Strand, this is the one time I could really use the Aldwych branch; but they closed it down years ago
