Muddymoles mountain biking in the Surrey Hills and Mole Valley

Does this Orange count toward my Five a day?

Either that or they just have got it right.

The deed has been done, 16″ and sparkle laquer on a Passion Red base coat. I’m pimping the Five up so much I may well have Huggy Bear knocking on my door asking me to ease off.

Well I refer, of course, to the purchase of my new Orange Five frame from Cycleworks. The only problem I can see now is that where we used to have Marin’s piled up at the top of Box Hill while we partook in the flapjack and other cakes, there will now be a lot of Five frames.

Dave from Cycleworks in Leatherhead only took one guess when I walked in to discuss the purchase (accompanied by a set of Pikes and a new wheel to suit). Apparently when Jem walked in to Cycleworks, Dave simply asked “What colour?”

    Stop all this talk of bike testing. I have the 5 out this weekend for a test and this article is doing my work rate no good at all.

    And yes I have permission to buy a new bike, next up Whyte e5, then the Mount Vision.
