Well, primarily I’ve been faced with all kinds of technical difficulties. First off, my PC died, forcing me into an expensive rebuild that I wasn’t planning. Then we decided to re-decorate our ‘study’ at home, which meant I somewhat lost the writing habit.
After all that, I then found a recent update to the backend software that this site uses was being blocked at work – so writing an article in the evening and editing/publishing from work was out. It’s only recently that a new update has fixed this.
Finally, I can resume writing.
I seem to have missed a lot but the important thing is the riding continues as normal. Various Moles have been to North Wales, South Wales and all round Surrey while I have concentrated on commuting with my road bike and my mountain bike. The trails are in cracking condition and I am finally getting round to selling off my ‘old stock’ on eBay to make space for something new.
I have new kit too – new pedals, new shoes, new tubeless inflators, new bar tape, new socks (!). Plenty to write up in fact…
And I really am enjoying my riding which is really what it’s all about isn’t it?
