Barely used the moonlander since buying the Fargo and now adding the krampus to the fleet.

My pal loves it, so I let him rid it on the odd weekend, just to get some miles on it.

Today it was a nice spring sunny day with temps around 6-8c....but felt warmer when the sun came out......so we done a 33 mile trip around the coast and river Tyne.

12 miles in a coffee and ice cream stop.

Can't keep up with the fatbike on sand.....

Then a small detour to Newcastle quayside for a bratwurst and a pint!

Been using the big moony quite a bit the past week after sticking 1,000 miles on my jones in 8 weeks I thought it could do with a rest.....and the moonlander had just had a brake service, fresh front wheel bearings and a new headset to freshen it up.

Here's a few pics from yesterday's 31 miler up the coast then back home through the woods and single track.....bliss.....if a little flooded in places.
