we’re all going on a….

Summer holiday….

I’m off on hols for a couple of weeks from this weekend so if you’re trying to get hold of me you won’t be able to. I’ll be checking email intermittently so send an email if you need to, but it may be a little while before I reply. Cheers.

ssshhhhh…..

Can you hear that? No? Me neither.

I’ve just got a nice new quiet compressor which means I can get rid of the hideous noisy thing I’ve been using up ’til now. In fact, I say ‘using’ but the truth is I wasn’t using it as the noise of the fecker is enough to drive you mad. This little thing, a Junair is mega quiet, about the same level as a fridge.

sneaky bike ride

I snuck out from the workshop this afternoon afternoon for a couple of hours. The sun was out and I was being distracted by Le Tour anyway so out on the bike it was.

Found some nice singletrack only a few miles from the house that I must have ridden past loads of times without seeing. Weird.

Rouleur goes offroad

It seems that the folks behind the Rouleur magazine are about to launch a sister title for off road cyclists called ‘Privateer’. Due for release late August. Should be interesting.

UPDATE: looks like there’s a website: http://www.privateer.cc/
