today I was meant to be heading to Arran for a road ride, but cried off due to feeling just a wee bit ticht after yesterdays physical jerks and a forecast of rain. I was able to switch to tomorrow though. This gave me a chance to tinker a bit with the road bike(modern), I've a few bits and bobs to go on but the postie had been and delivered a nice Campag seat post that was due for the Concorde. Embarrassingly I have not ridden this bike in anger, it was a combination of waiting for the post to come up for sale at a reasonable price and a more mtb focus this year. Anyhoo it seemed as good a time as any to do some of the stuff I had planned for the Concorde, so post fitted, switched the saddle to a white rolls I had, new bottle cage fitted, new tyres fitted and a bit of a fettle, all ready for a leisurely loop of Arran tomorrow :) I still have a couple of jobs to do but the parts are ordered.

I think I've been rather rash.
I've only gone and entered a cyclocross race.

Cross racing in the pitch black sponsored by a cider company, what can possibly go wrong!

Good luck clubby, the best bit of advice I can give is to do some super high intensity stuff, its redline from the get go!


Looks like I'm sacking Arran again :roll: Jessie that I am its peeing doon over there. It was meant to be a nice enjoyable bimble but its no fun in the rain. I'm just trying not to think what Jens would say :oops:

Clubby, Dalkeith Country Park's a great place for CX. Lots of fast trails, nothing too technically demanding, sounds a good laugh.

I however would spectate only, not fit enough and cant nightride for toffee :roll: :lol:

If you want some pit crew, give me a shout :wink:
