Due to work commitments and a fairly long recovery from pneumonia (over the Christmas Holidays), yesterday was the first time this year i have swung my leg over Geraldine ( she’s a Surly Straggler btw). Overloaded her with various Revelate bags (acquired on eBay etc over the last 6 months at monstrous discount), and set off in to the Peak.
•My handling and nerves need recalibrating. •Some of the mud was so deep the wheels stopped turning
•Need to figure out how to keep the Revelate Sweetroll up and off my B&M dynolight
•Still caught between the full on expedition build of the Revelate products and the easier to use Apidura bags
Lunch of Kabuto noodles and Nescafe 3in1 in a hedgerow, then a bit of careering round the upper part of Porter Clough
Time to tune and refine the set-up and settle back in to the simple joy of turning pedals as much as possible this Spring and Summer.
