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.
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.
