Ok ok, time has been a big issue for my lack of posts. Combine that with the horrible image uploading on the wordpress iPhone app and its not been motivating for me.. (also the resizing of pictures on the web version is TERRIBLE!!-can anyone help? I use the % scale and it completely distorts the original dimensions)
Edit: the pictures are also uploaded in a random order and when i try move them to the correct order and the captions stay behind or merge with another caption!!
Anyway, what have I been up to?
Well, had a few larger rides – 60km (only packed one flapjack..) & 70km (learned from my mistakes and pack a whole packed lunch!)
I’ve also had a birthday in the middle so got a few nifty things:- Crank Brothers multi tool (a bit disappointed as there’s not much leverage), Cat-eye Velo 7 (very impressed!) and some SPDs (complete with 3 humiliating falls and a nasty ankle injury)
I’ve certainly been putting in the miles and, hopefully, this will pay off for the charity ride.
I’ve also been buying myself all the rest of the gear for my ride. Things like a pannier rack, bags (pannier & frame) etc. I’m yet to buy some bib shorts, a new helmet, some better fitting shoes (my old ones were Aldi £15 ones) and some new glasses. I bought some glasses but broke the frame trying to change lenses!! Hopefully the warranty will cover it
Finally, I’ll leave you with a selection of images taken over the past couple of weekends
