Busy week

The Bike has now been converted to singlespeed so no more worrying about gears.
It has now turn very cold so the cycling has been put on hold.
It's been a good week, imagine this picture with Snow on the hills, dark clouds and rain.
A Friend phoned to tell me he had slid into the ditch on this road and asked me to help him get out.
(If you look in the centre of the picture you can see the part of the road he came off)
It came out with no damage so it was a good ending, but it was a bit of an adventure.
The only thing that broke were the rubber exhaust mountings on my car, they split with age and I had to lay under the car in the rain to fix the problem so I could get home.
They could have done it in a better place, I fixed it properly when i got home.

My car went in for it's Mot (Yearly check) One brake hose, 2 rear tyres, I suppose it could have been worse.
Most of the problems are caused by lack of use.

Still sorting the parts out for the new bike!! still trying to finalise which frame to use.
