New bike

I visited Bicycle doctor in Rusholme Manchester the other day as I have had my eye on a bike for some time now and have always wanted one. I just called in for a look as you do. Guess what 10 minutes in the shop and I hear myself muttering the words " yep I will have it " I've not got it yet as I get my bikes through the bike to work scheme . But when I get it all will be revealed. Whoooohooooo.

The GT rides again

I resurrected the road bike today after fitting it with some new boots a pair of schwalbe marathon plus  tyres, in my opinion the best commuting tyres going. I parked my car today in Altrincham and cycled into work from there with a colleague the 8.5 miles to work. It was a nice ride in but we got a right soaking on the way back and I did feel a bit smug when my colleague punctured riding home. It was lovely changing the wheel in the rain though ...........not.
