That's not Chateau Raray. That's the head office of Lancashire County council! It's going to be yet another fiasco on the promenade at Blackpool this year, with a hundred cyclists storming the tower all claiming they're in gay Paris. Wherever you end up my friend, have a fantastic day and enjoy every minute of the ride no matter how painful. Remember, life's not all about our final destination (6 feet under), it's about route you took to get there. Enjoy the journey boys!
Cheers Stretch! Well, it's all behind us now, and we'll each be able to bore friends and colleagues for months with our tales of derring-do.
And the mention of behind, mines somewhat tender!!
And first glitch from the bike - 2nd day, just before lunch stuck in the big chainring and 6th sprocket at rear, shifting ceases functioning. Nothing. I knew the battery shouldn't be flat as it was charged before leaving and good for 1000 - 1500 miles.
Thankfully, removal and reinsertion of battery rebooted it - phew, didn't fancy tackling the rest of day and trip without access to lower gears for climbing!
F1 fanatic, enjoy travel, interested in technology, photography - oh, and re-ignited interest in [road] cycling!
