I pedalled in on my Ridgback commuter along the canal this morning, the reason for that is quite simple, it’s a bloody lovely day and why would I want to be pedalling through a City on my road bike when I could be enjoying the rural idyll that is the canal? You see, despite my many road commuting miles, I’m still a MTBer at heart.
I had myself a deliberate (for once) lie in and got up at 0605hrs. There was no point being here early doors as the systems here weren’t going to be re-started after the maintenance until 0700hrs.
I had my Muvi on, (footage later if it’s worth it) and had a very pleasant pedal with no incidents of any note.

Here are some pics of my bike maintenance session from Saturday.
Then it was the Ridgeback’s turn, which is as to be expected very grimey as befits its working environment.
I’ve just realised I never took an “after” shot of her, you’ll have to take my word for it that she looks the business and pedals like a dream!
My office at work is propably the worst office here during the summer as all of the servers and other IT gubbins are sat in a cupboard in front of my desk, so it is bloody hot! Just so you get a flavour of my working conditions, I’m literally sat right against a portable aircon unit that is doing its level best to kick out some cold air to counter the heat from the computer stuff.
I love the summer…
