Same wall, different bike
Doing some research about your bike and I came across the bikeradar forum,
back in 2013 some guy with a user name of
47p2, posted some photos,
Looks just like yours?
Great looking bike.
Old bike, old wall.
There's this, totally bombproof and ugly but I like it a lot
I guess it fits some definitions of a wall as well as a window...
The glints behind the bars and saddle are from the copper-bottomed hull of...
And this, but the wall is more of a bridge. The path you see will likely become a part of the Oxford to Cambridge rail line so I wanted to ride it before it disappears
Thanks for that,
I've just Google the route, interesting.
I'm interested in that I'm concerned about the government plan is to hand it over completely to private companies, obviously after the tax payer has paid the private consultants to pretty much organise the plan.
In my humble opinion , the traveler would get a better deal if it was kept as a public non profit making line with any surplus being re-invested back to keep it well maintained but that is probably a title for a thread in sc & p.
The leg of the path we rode on that day is lovely but hard going due to it being mainly still ballast and I was on 35mm cycle cross tyres, I'd say an mtb would be slightly more suited.
You really do get a feeling of remoteness for the most part, if you're local, try it.
Wearing my new Polaris RBS Grid jacket I saw in the bargains thread (got it for £20, now its back up to £75), also wearing their bamboo base layer top (£5 now 30) and Loki gloves (£10 now £30).

Previously had the M:Part primoplastic mudguards, the 55mm were more like 45mm, and the plastic adjustable stays broke and needed constant adjustment.
