I've entered the Snow Roads 300km Audax, so have been doing some training (and losing weight along the way). Purchase of a Bryton GPS unit means I can now log rides to the finest detail. A great thing for the obsessive statistician within.
It's also gives me the opportunity to do GPS DIYs in my build up, and from this the idea of attempting my first 'Super Randonneur' series is born. Whether I manage it or not remains to be seen, but there's nothing wrong with having a goal, is there?
So, a return to blogging :-) I'll try to update my ramblings, mutterings and musings on 'Windy Wandering' in due course, and update you on my cycling exploits along the way.
I'll say goodbye now, but leave you with a picture of the most recent addition to my bike stable - a refurbished 1978 Raleigh Super Course. Those of you who have been paying attention will have seen the frame before, in a state of pre-refurbishment back in 2010. Well I finally pulled my finger out and got it all fettled and fit for purpose! It's a frame that Raleigh gave me back in 1978 when I rode with the VC Europa. As it became surplus to requirement I built it up as a single speed and passed it onto my dad. He rode it for a number of years until he replaced it with a shiny 21 geared Henry Burton. In dad's memory, the Raleigh Super Course will (from this point forward) be referred to as 'Gerald' :-)
