Embraced my status as a ‘MAMIL’* and headed out for a ride this morning, letting 21 miles of the Berkshire countryside roll beneath my wheels. My confidence in the new bike was amply rewarded, my confindence in the weather forecast, was not!

Test flight confirms that the saddle is not as comfortable as it looks and will be swapped with the one on the skinny-tyred weapon. Also tried riding with pedal/toe-clip combo this morning so that I can ride in any shoes I want, but pedalling definitely not as efficient ,so the SPDs will be going on. Overall though, the bike rocks! … and has been christened** “Cool Runnings”
