Great evening at Yarmouth Stadium

Last night a group of us from the Peterborough Greyhound Stadium went to Yarmouth Stadium in Great Yarmouth. It was mainly a fact finding mission to see what we could learn from them and of course want they could learn from us!

It really want a great night out. The food was to die for. I had a BBQ Ribs, following by breaded stuffed chicken breast and for dessert, I had raspberry and white chocolate cheesecake. All of which, I would really recommend. I could just about say say the dessert was one of the best, I have ever had!

If you are ever in the Great Yarmouth area and are looking for a great night, I would recommend going! And no, I have not been paid to say any of that!!

P.S. Just looked at there website and they even have Free Wi-Fi in most part of Stadium. That is something I do believe, that most places should do! Just not going to name them here!! 🙂

I will now leave you with some photos from a great evening out!


Just beating last years record

I am happy with myself. Just gone and beating last years record number of miles on the bike. Last year I did 5,066 miles. So this year I have done 5,075.2 miles!!

Last week, I set myself a new goal of 5,150 miles, by the end of this year. Now going to change that up to 5,250 miles. If the weather plays nice, that should be very easy indeed to do!

I will leave you with cycling statistics from today’s ride.

  • Time: 2:24:21 (h:m:s).
  • Avg Speed: 11.9 mph.
  • Max Speed: 28.1 mph.

Spider-Man suit photos after work

Since I still had the Spider-Man suit on after work. Which also happens to be the longest time I ever had it on for. Put it on at 5:30pm and still at it on after 12:30am. So of course, I just had to stop on the way home and get these photos. It’s also the first time, I have ever driven my car dressed as Spider-Man :).
