Coooooold, Weeeeeeeet, Yuuuuuuuuck

03 Nov 2009 at 18:35

Today marked the transition from summer rain to winter rain, the full-on red legs/purple toes occurred during the post-ride shower, it's not fun waking up feet that have been numb for over 3.5 hours, it reminds me of a time I came back from a glove-less paper-round on a snowy day - never have I experienced that much pain without some significant physical damage. Thankfully today didn't get close to that particular level of horror.

Sixth ride on the Niner, still going alright, I'm learning to cope with the flexing back end, but it's still catching me out at points when it tends to feel vague at the back, like a flat tyre.
If you want to buy one, they're here

Now into the final 400 miles, woo, that's eight hard rides, but more likely nine normal rides, given the rapidly decaying weather system.
