The three of us, Baz, Clive and myself set off at 5 a.m. this morning for Innerleithen and a slightly different route for a change. Due to Clive's number one bike, a Kona, being out of action due to a front fork under repair, his old work bike the Giant XTC was called into action. It was quickly renamed the Red Flash ( for no real reason!), but performed admirably on the rough track conditions we encountered today, although Clive will probably take a few days to recover any feeling in his arms, wrists and hands as the forks were not really up to it!
With the Ten Under The Ben race only two weeks away my bike as usual before an event manages to come up with one problem after another but a mixture of foul language and ingenuity usually manages to overcome them!
