This pic shows how close I came to not finishing the 400 I rode a couple of weekends ago I didn't notice it on the ride. I usually ride with a spare tyre on longer rides but on this ride I chose not to. There would have had very few options if this blew through the night on one of the remote roads we were on. I rode with George who also chose not to carry a spare on this ride, which is also rare for him...two wrongs don't make a right.
It was a great ride and was made better having had George to ride it with, he's riding very strongly and not surprisingly averaging about 400 k's a week.
I reckon I won't be taking a punt on my next long ride and will have a spare taped to the bars.
I haven't been around for a few weeks and haven't seen a few of you for a while so am hoping you can make it to tomorrow's ride. 8am at the usual place in Lannie.
