    You generally log your mileage on whichever bike you are riding , may l ask which piece of equipment you use ? l don't have anything at the moment but l would like to keep a record for each bike, just for interest sake .

    Strange how a bike with only a single chain ring can still climb ok .

    Looking good Mr Biggs, only two observations ....its just not fair, you were riding in what looks like a pleasant morning and here its is minus 3 c. and l know if were on that bike (empty head that l am) l would reach for the drops and end up head first into the black stuff:whistle:

    Just back from an 11.5 mile pre work ride first double figure ride on any bike for over a week and i chose this great bike to do it on , and after 2 miles i remembered why it was bought to be my ' winter ' bike plus the fact it rides so smoothly

    Im having withdrawal symptoms about not being on a bike for just over a week due to awful weather .... it has rained most days and then frozen overnight, result black ice on all of the roads around here. Just not worth the risk .:sad:
