And what a happy boy Mr Ag is. He got new toy.

Bad things come in threes…

Well, last nights ride certainly didn’t help. Whist crossing a plank over a stream in Delamere, I misjudged it and didn’t get the rear wheel onto the plank, which then dropped into the stream, pulling me with it. I tried to get hold of a post to stop me falling over, but my fingers slipped off the mossy surface and splosh, down I went, on my back in a stinky, cold bog.
Shortly after that, it became apparent that something was amiss with my rear gears, as any effort caused the chain to merrily skip all over the cassette and there was about four gears worth of slack in the cable. Rear mech looked a bit suspect too. I decided at that point to cut my ride short and go wait in the van for the others – ho hum, sometimes it’s like that.

Wait – that’s only two things I hear you say. Well, yes – upon arriving home, I find an email from a guy who’s decided he can’t wait another couple of days for an overdue Spot to turn up, so he wants to cancel his order – leaving a £2500 pile of bits that we’ve ammassed for it to go back on the shelf. That pretty much guarantees the Spot delivery (which left the US on 9th February) will arrive today.

Thursday – 22/2/07

That’s the first week of February out of the way and without particulary trying I appear to have lost 7lbs.
Let’s see where we get to next week…

Thursday Night Snow Ride *UPDATE*

Thursday, February 8th, 2007

Sod it, I hate riding in the snow anyway and as no on else really wants to, we’re not going tonight.

Winter’s here then!

I love snow but I hate riding bikes in it, let’s see what Thursday brings before we decide where to ride this week – I was hoping to go to Llandegla, but if it snows like it’s supposed to out that way, we’ll stay a little closer to home!
