What with a bit of nice weather and the trails drying out, I've been busy on my bike. Theres a few nice runs pretty much straight out the door so the old Spot has been given an airing and we've been having a few "blasts" on the local tracks. They started of with the normal pools of mud every hundred metres to almost nothing but doost this week. It's good to be a mountain biker again (even if there are no mountains).

Finally, and I'm a little embarrassed to say this but, some of the best rides I've had of late have been on my road bike. There really is something very exciting about jumping on a featherweight bit of carbon after riding round on heavy lumps for the last 8 months. It really gets the sap rising. The first couple of miles, sorry kilometres, true roadies use Km, felt like the bike wasn't beneath me. I was riding along chuckling to myself and getting all giddy just over how exhilarating it was. Going back to show over substance, I recently got a Pro Roadie jersey from Endura on the last VC order. It's snug, pro snug. What with the new VC armwarmers (which are also very snug) and matching shorts I was looking super pro style. Jo Burt would have approved. Skintight is sooo sexy.
