A nice sunny afternoon today for a change. Shame I can’t ride though. I’ve just been to the opticians for an annual checkup, this involves squirting funny dye into my eyes to see if I’m damaging them by wearing my contact lenses. This means I can’t put lenses back in until tomorrow, and I can’t ride in my normal glasses. Shame really as I quite fancy a short blast on the road bike. Red Bull is getting ever closer, and I haven’t ridden properly for several weeks. They biggest problem is that the weather has been so crap lately, I can’t muster up enough enthusiasm to go riding after work when it is so wet.
Popped into the LBS whilst I was in town, picked up a new Park chain tool and some new Endura 3/4 length bib shorts, possibly the best shorts ever created and perfect for riding in the UK for at least 9 months of the year. Also left my Axo Cortez 2 shoes to be returned, one of them was coming apart after not very much use. Hopefully they will replace them for me.
