The Broken Toy

Thought I would post a picture of the damage to the bike it’s not a pretty sight.


I’ll add more to this when I feel up to it. What’s annoying me is I missed the rest of the ride which was going well up to this point.

Great news The Toy is repaired and back home. The mechanic at Quinns has done a fantastic job in repairing what I honestly thought was a terminal breakage of my pride and joy. 

Things were really bleak up Moel Famau, it was blowing a gale, there are no mobile phone signals up there and this was my hardest climb to date which ended 100 metres before the top of the pass, right on the steepest bit. Many thanks to Roy who stayed with me in what looked to be a very dark hour. It was an interesting ride down to Ruthin.
