Not a bad day, but tired now.

Removing paper from my boots after commute soaking a couple of days ago.

Had a great cycle ride between 07.00 and 09.30 this morning, just my usual loop a couple of circuits of Cwmgwrach, down the valley to Aberdulais, then back up again, another trip around Cwmgwrach via a steep section, then to Pontneddfechan and back home. I really thought I was going to get a soaking, but it stayed dry, though the wind was quite fierce.

My pace was shown up to be that of a snail, yet again, as at one point a chap in shorts, like myself, albeit he looked like he weighed 8 stone tops, on wheels about 1/2″ wide, passed me at, it must have been, 20 odd mph. He soon disappeared in the distance. No wind resistance you see, I’m a rather wide load, with such broad shoulders, now, after all those kettlebell exercises. That’s my excuse anyway.

No fault of  the Pioneer GT however, because the adjustments I made, referred to in my last post, made the ride extremely comfortable in the cockpit, though the gears still need a bit more fine tuning.

On my ride, I was disappointed to see that the strong winds of the last few days had brought down some lovely trees. Big trees that, sadly, won’t be replaced.

My dad wouldn't believe it.

But above is a shot of me cleaning the Pioneer GT. You guessed it, that’s not the photo, I intended to insert here.

Oops! ran out of time.
