Decided I couldn’t be arsed to cycle from Seix so drove with wifey over the Col de Port and on to Ax Les Thermes, after a spot of lunch I thought I would go for a nice long bike ride, over the Col de Pailheres, unfortunately the Garmin 1000n started a new trick, crashing every minute, complete screen blank…

I wondered if the memory was full, so I deleted some unwanted rides/routes, it continued crashing, I stopped the current course, it continued crashing, I stopped and saved the ride and started a new one…yep it continued crashing…

At the top of the mountain it gave up completely and would not restart..so I used my phone, it connected to the power meter and heart rate monitor and worked PERFECTLY!

I decided to turn around and head straight back to wifey (Garmin completely ruined todays ride for me!!!!!)

Todays ride is recorded in 2 broken and 1 working part(s)

When I got back, after being grumpy for a while, I cycled to shops with wifey, then on to Ax les Thermes for food 🙂

After leaving the Garmin in a HOT van for the afternoon it now appears to be working again, I think the mountain descent yesterday may have caused some internal condensation? It is however an unreliable heap of shit, that ruined a nice bike ride!
