    Talking Had her fully stripped, fully serviced and now looking as good as new......

    ......and no, I wasn't meaning the missus!! (or the car)

    I bet Cara was thinking "Oh sh*t - what's he done to my car!"

    She's been neglected for the past year (hanging up in the garage), so I thought time to sort it out. Collected it from the bike shop today after every component was stripped, cleaned, new bearings and cables etc. etc.



    Yep - they are water bottle carriers!




    Got Michelins on the car - gotta have them on the bike!







    About to go out for a quick blast on it now!

    And along with a birthday present from last week, I'm gonna be getting myself back to being super-fit again.

    I don't hang around when I'm cycling, but I'm only a newbie on the blades so taking that steady at the moment. Managed to knock off a few miles on them yesterday though.

    Right, deffo off now for a test cycle......

    Phew! - that was fun! Bike running like an absolute dream.
    Quick 3.5 miles in 10 minutes. Should be quicker once I'm fit again.

    lol - the pictures will have to wait!

    I'm afraid I have got the 'dodgy' Lycra cycling shorts - it's the best thing there is. I don't, I repeat , I don't wear dodgy Lycra when blading!!

    Sorry - I didn't have any donuts before I went out!!!

    Never even hit 60mph on a bike (60kph - yep). Fastest speed I've hit on a descent is 50mph.
