Blog: August 28. Almost went for a ride.

It’s a glorious, sunny Sunday, but that’s no use to me. I’m laid up with the wog. I was all set to do the Scrapheap fundraiser ride in Inverell yesterday. I had the bike on the trailer and all the gear in the van. I was even up at 4.30am, ready to leave, but I just felt too crap. I gave it up in the hope of a quicker recovery. If I’d done the ride…

Blog: August 21. Too many selfies

Blog: August 7. Paying the price

After a week away I’ve been¬† chained to my desk trying to get back on the pace with work. I haven’t done any special rides worth bragging about, but I did get to do a few short trips on the Dominator, just to run quick errands, and that bike is special to me. I’ve also been fooling around on the Montesa. I should spend more time on that trials bike, because I enjoy it so…
