We've waited a while for a bridge over the small river just up from the Howe, in the summer it's a piece of cake biking through it but in the winter you sometimes nearly need a aqua lung to get across. Last week saw the foundations being laid by, in the forefront Jock McKinney and working furiously in the background his mate Kevin (Costner) as I like to call him! Anyway this was the situation on Friday when Kathy and I biked up for a look.
Today, Monday, and it's looking good, our two likely lads have been working hard and making a tidy job at that. Cant wait to cross it though there's no plans as yet for another one just up from it so it'll still have to be a bit dicy biking through the water!
Kathy took a fancy to this Lamborghini that was being photographed in the picturesque surroundings.
Out on Friday night with Baz for his first big circuit up the Pentlands since his injury over 8 months ago, it was good to have him back!
Finished the weeks riding on Sunday with Clive destroying both the knee of his bib tights and the skin on his own knee after he badly misjudged the width of his handlebars as he tried to ride past a traffic sign.
A good weeks riding of over 170 miles off road, the weather was cold, frosty, but virtually no wind but that's all to change in the next day or two. Since tomorrow is officially the first day of Spring I've taken off the ice spikers.......that should guarantee a really cold spell of crappy weather!
