The weather forecast indicated some double figure temperatures, with a moderate wind blowing from Wales, so it seemed like a good idea to have a bike ride to Raglan Castle and back πŸ™‚

The ride out was lumpy! with a moderate head/cross wind, but we made quite good time to the castle πŸ™‚ completing the 62 miles jut in time for lunch (12:30)

An unwanted slice of Victoria sandwich cake was delivered to a customer whom had already received there order, so rather than it go to waste, I ordered it πŸ™‚ and I thought a nice small Cheese and Onion sandwich would be nice, washed down with a Coffee, I forced Simon to have some fruit cake and a Coffee πŸ™‚

My Sandwich arrived and it was huge! each slice of bread was about 3/4 inch thick with about an inch of cheese and onion inside! I did manage to finish it, but the first climbs post lunch were a bit touch and go if I would see it again!

The climbs after lunch were a little more hideous than the pre lunch ones! however we only had 47 miles to go πŸ™‚

On the home stretch Simon had a puncture and again demonstrated his kack handed approach to tube replacement…

When I pressed him on who taught him such a method of tube replacement he would not answer!

Basically he removes the tyre and tube completely, then fits the new tube to the wheel rim, then fits the tyre over the tube and rim….I will stick to my fit tyre to rim, fit tube in tyre then fit remaining side of tyre…makes sense to me…

13th February 2017

Worked from home today…

I was uber busy yet again! but I did manage to break away for a VERY slow bike ride on the FatBike, There was a very tough headwind out, and the back tyre appeared to be loosing pressure on the return!

I did pump it back up when I got home and it didn’t seem to have a puncture, I guess I will find out next time I get the bike out!
