Well guys and girls just got back from the FTD and its ever so muddy,i did find a few dry spots and its nice and dry in the woods which covers about half the distance but loads of mud and puddles
,now gotta go find some new rear blocks for next weeks fun.
The weather forecast is dry up to Sunday so perhaps some of this might drain off and dry out? Regular Cannock 'users' might know?
I went out yesterday on the SS and found it not to bad an experience using 36 x 18. Steady climbs are OK but I couldn't handle ones with sharp gradient changes and with 'gnarly' bits in them which with gears you would change down and pedal over. Saying that, it's nice occasionally when concentrating on a tricky bit not to have to worry about gearing. And a lot easier to clean the bike after!
I'm going to ride without SPD's or toeclips using my old Axo boots - so getting off for a nice walk won't be a problem!
Taking plenty of clean dry clothes to change into afterwards.
Merry Christmas everyone!
Today is the yesterday of tomorrow.
