Merry New Year all. Hopefully everyone had a great Christmas and more importantly a successful Festive 500.
Last Christmas Eve Stu and I set a 15 mile route and looped around it as many times as we could. This went well and we managed 170 miles despite some rather punchy headwinds and a 5pm curfew.
New tyres and the Dolan was prepped for many miles.
This year we found a new fife loop and with no time restraints we were got to work at the strike of midnight. To briefly summarise 20 hours of riding; it was so cold everything that froze, we saw a nice sunrise and managed 230 miles.
Stu and I could have squeezed more laps out but @Eamesy was freezing to death in the van faster than we were freezing on the bikes so we called it at 8pm before anyone succumbed to the elements.
A bit disappointing that we didn't make it to 400km, there is always next year.
Popped out on Boxing Day and dusted my Festive 500 off with a superb Perthshire loop.
- My doubts were unfounded and Planet X were mighty speedy at replacing my shoes.
- Rummaged my dads shed and found a nice set of Azonic pedals circa 2005 to replace the shitty plastic ones on the beater.
- Tried some Mary bars on the Charge and they were awful.
