I picked up ‘Candy’ after her 6 week check up at LeisureLakes this evening. She got the all clear as expected and it’s good to know everything was lchecked over so close to the big ride. I’ve had no problems with her whatsoever and a couple of days riding the Trek 7.3 have made me appreciate the front suspension and her wider, softer tyres that little bit more. The Trek is quicker but shakes me up – fine for a 30 minute blast to and from the office but not what I would want for 8 hours of a day.
Just off to sort through my kit and check everything is washed and ready. 5 day forecast for Workington on BBC says heavy rain this weekend :o(
