This cycling blog

If anyone is still paying attention… As you’ve probably guessed, I’ve more or less abandoned this cycling blog. Unfortunately, it’s getting towards the end of the cycling season and I haven’t been out much this year.

Even when I am doing a lot of cycling, I find it very difficult to bring myself to write up the ride reports. I don’t know why but I just don’t seem to have any enthusiasm for it.

We have bike! Sort of…

Some of you may know that I’ve been without a bike for the last month or so. I have come to terms with the fact that, as my bike is my only means of transport, I really need two bikes: a main bike and a backup bike for emergencies.

Fortunately, my mother came up trumps on Saturday and managed to pick up an old bike for six pounds. I haven’t properly identified the bike yet but I would estimate that it’s from the 70’s. It has 26×1 3/8 wheels and is of a type that was sometimes called a “English Tourer”. Here she is (the bike, not my mother):

A quick pootle in the wind

Filed under: Uncategorized — mike @ 7:08 pm

Another potter about. It was just too windy today and I hate riding into the wind. I probably only got about five miles away from the house but I was able to do a bit of exploring. I started to retrace some of yesterday’s route in reverse and I also go into some woods.

When milder weather comes along, I’m pretty much ready to go on some long day/camping trips now. I just a need a good water carrier of some kind.

Now, if I explore this track, will I be able to get though the other side to get onto the main road?
