A bit of a soft week, been doing spinning classes at the Oval and West Kirby witha a ride out to the Eureka on Wednesday that turned out to be a wet one.
Dodged the rain by calling in at Ness Gardens on the way home with the rain hammering down on the plasic roof. The road at Neston was flooded so it was a trip around the back of the church to avoid it.
There is a new spinning instructor at the Oval, Barbara, who used to be one of the class.
Friday: Another trip out to the Eureka, been chatting to a chap with a Kuota Kharma that he has repaired himself. Was time to test the shortened Nokon cables, look great but living with the squeaks on every turn of the bars is a nightmare. Next up is to sort the creak which appears when honking out of the saddle. Wheels are holding up well, no brake block rub when you load them up on a climb.
Signed up for the Eureka ride at the end of August while I was there. Had a stop at Parkgate where there was a brisk trade in Ice creams. Back in time to see Cav take another stage win.
Nike shoes scratched by the front mech cable that I hadn’t cut back so time to look out for a new pair.
Saturday: Was going to go out but watched the time trial on Eurosport. It was really close at times but Contador held out in the end for another Tour win. All bodes well for next year.
