A well earned day off from cycling, but oh, so much to do! My bicycle and equipment has taken a bit of a battering over these last 13 months, and over the last 2 months in particular. Although i generally keep on top of the bicycle maintanance, and make sure its in good order, there was still a healthy list to add to my general list.
1. Needed new brakes (again), cleaning and to oil chain. The front right rack is looking dangerous, and my gel seat is falling apart.
2. Needed to buy a new cup, and pan. The teflon was coming off my old cooking pan, which probably isn´t a healthy thing to consume.
3. Needed a warm hat and warm socks.
4. Website tweaking.
5. General food supplies.
Not a huge list, but it took up most of the day, and even then, i had only cleaned the front half of the bike. The rear wheel, cassette and chain was to carry on until the next day.
Dinner was in the attached restaurant. Grossly more expensive than my usual 5 sole meals, but its hard to beat steak and chips, and i needed feeding up!
