First ride of the year

The original plan for today was to head out for a ride to test out my new handlebars, but after popping down to Johns Bikes yesterday and discovering a complete lack of any bar tape, that fell by the wayside. I did end up coming away with a new set of Bontrager shoe covers, so this morning headed out on the Singular Firebird to try them out.

I headed out along the cycle track as usual, and it’s still flooded where it passed underneath Newbridge Road.

Bristol-Bath cycle track still flooded

Between Christmas and New Year it was apparently nearly hub depth, now it’s down to a couple of inches.

I carried on out to Bitton Station, up through Keynsham, then back via Corston. 16 miles in 70 minutes or so. A nice gentle start to the year.
