well i have just completed my longest ride so far on the moonlander, just short of the 60 mile mark, with 2,000+ other cyclists for the 2012 great north bike ride, from seahouses to tynemouth.

https://maps.google.com/?q=http://share ... 6-0900.kml

i almost did it on my badboy hybrid, but the fact i was going to be with my 2 workmates who are not the fittest, made me think otherwise....the girlfriend said she wanted to ride that bike too, and as it was her first event i let her.

with the sad news about Neil Armstrong this weekend, i decided it would also be a fitting tribute to take the moonlander and let it be the first moonlander to ever do this event!

what a great bike....it was no problem and surprised hundreds of folk who i passed....it caused quite a stir.

Had a few issues with my body since last weeks charity ride, sore back and knee has stopped me riding much, even walking has been hard!

Today I went out for a slow beach ride, 18 miles 95% off road with a mixture of sand, gravel, huge rocks, tidal mud, grass etc.....no issues for the fatbike running 5psi.

Lunch first

The route

In some places it was a jungle

5psi squishy ness!

Sand looks like sprinkles you put on ice cream

While in town picking up a sandwich I bumped into these chaps

Amazing how a little beach ride can cheer you up
