    Lol, need to sell my Kashimax TT protector if that’s the going rate.

    I think shouty wheels look great on this. Personally it’s the spacer stack and negative stem that I don’t like (and the bartape looks real thick), but otherwise, lovely.

    I’m hoping so. I have literally worn through my LS jersey and insulated gilet and need to replace them soon.

    Nice. How’s the MTBing there?

    I’m off to Tenerife the end of this month and wondering if I should take the gravel bike instead of the road bike like the last time I went.

    It is an exceedingly good album though.

    Im currently 5 months in on my RRTY attempt and so far everything has gone swimmingly. I've done all of the perms within a 30 mile radius of Edinburgh, so I guess I'll need to do some DIY's. This is the first time I've done this, so I have some questions and would be super grateful if anyone could help :)

    1. Can I repeat the same route twice on different dates?

    2. Is there a minimum time between submitting a DIY to the organiser and riding it? For example, if the weather forecast suddenly turns for the better and I submit a DIY for the following day. Is this an Audax faux pas?

    3. Can I pretty much plan any route for a DIY with GPS validation? (Obviously not doing circuits or the same length of road over and over.) Would any 200km ride I've done from my doorstep likely be ok?

    EDIT: I'm doing them all fixed as well for the lol's. Hoping I won't need to put studded tyres on again like last year as I couldn't get over the 100 mile mark on them :|

    For coffee check out Fortitude, Artisan Roast and Cult.

    The Bearded Baker does my favourite cinnamon rolls. They normally have three different types and they’re great for a little pick-me-up.

    Arthur’s Seat is a classic. You may want to check out The Braid Hills and the Hermitage of Braid walks. The Hermitage is a pretty interesting valley walk with a river and some cool old buildings.
