Wahoo Elemnt Bolt arrived today, and first impressions are good!

I worked from home today, and took the bike out for a spin after work, the Elemnt appears to just work, no hassles… I will try it with navigation tomorrow to see how the map looks/feels…

My feeling at the moment is that I will use the Wahoo for local rides where I dont need navigation ans use the Hammerhead (When it arrives) for Touring/long navigation rides, but we shall see!

Worked from home today…

The Garmin 1000 is dead, it never recovered from yesterdays rain….IPX7 my arse!

The Hammerhead Karoo isnt going to be available untill mid/end of next month, so I have ordered a Wahoo Elemnt Bolt as I NEED a computer for the Alps!

I went out for a pleasant afterwork bike ride with Cousin Alex πŸ™‚ and the phone worked flawlessly with Strava (Much better than the Garmin ever did!)

23rd July 2017

Got up, went for a walk then had cooked breakfast πŸ™‚

Decided against cycling home in favour of driving home then going for a bike ride πŸ™‚

Managed to get out for around 1pm and cycled to the Cotswold water park and back, got caught in a torrential downpour on the way home, the heap of shit Garmin got waterlogged…

he Garmin is now in the airing cupboard in a bag of rice drying out, in the hope that a) the ride can be saved and b) the Garmin might work again…It really is a heap of dog turd..I will NEVER buy another Garmin!

I will upload the ride tomorrow….(Hopefully)

No cycling today…celebrating son's wedding πŸ™‚

21st July 2017

Worked half day, then cycled toΒ  Walton Hall (70 miles) on folding bike, to meet up with wife ready for son’s wedding day tomorrow πŸ™‚

I don’t think the folder is really intended for long distance riding! but it did hold up well πŸ™‚

I will upload to Strava when I get back home πŸ™‚
