I wrote about Cycling the Ridgeway Trail in 2010 and I’ve just cycled it again! This time, we chose a different starting point and rode in alternative directions each day.
Some of my best posts (I think). About cycling holidays and trips and my Trek hybrid bike.
So, I’ve gone and bought a new bike! I’ve been thinking about getting another bike for a few months and I ‘splashed the cash’ a week ago. It’s a Trek 7.4 FX which is a hybrid/commuting type bike. Here’s why I bought it.
A couple of weekends ago, I spent an enjoyable two days cycling in the Chilterns. It’s an area that I didn’t know very well so it was great to explore parts of it by bike.
On Saturday, some friends and I cycled to Dark Star Brewery for their Spin Up in a Brewery event which promised “Beer, Bikes and BBQ” at the brewery site in Partridge Green.
I’ve had the same handlebar grips on my Specialized Rockhopper mountain bike since I bought it in 2009. They’ve gradually become more and more worn and the rubber has started to perish. So, I’ve just been to the local Evans Cycles shop and bought a new pair of Bontrager Rhythm Lock-On Grips which were a bargain price at £11.99.
