Slippage

I was meant to be fixing a computer this afternoon, so despite the weather decided to ride out along the canal rather than drive. As it was wet I took the mudguard equipped Peregrine rather than the crosser, the downside being that it has 32mm slick tyres which don’t provide a lot of grip on a wet and muddy tow-path, at one point on the way back both tyres slipped sideways and I nearly ended up getting acquainted with the canal itself.

23 miles in the rain, and not enough food makes for a very hard last few miles home.

    Splendid, and riding with slicks on a slippery canal will hone your skills :)

    Swimming is not one of the skills I wish to hone :)
