Winter Riding

Been a bit slack with the updates on the blog to be fair. Apologies. It’s been tough to fit in blog updates around work, family, the festive chaos and riding like a BOSS around the New Forest’s lanes. I’m currently at a bit of an impasse due to a football injury – it seems, now at 31, I can’t play more than a couple of games without picking up some sort of body complaint!

Good news is the SKS Raceblade Longs I fitted in the autumn have been working a treat. Staying on solidly and not producing too much in the way of annoying rattley noises. One thing you do have to watch out for is gunk getting caught in and around the clips near the brake calipers- as the clearance is so tight in this area any build up just ends up scrubbing your tyre and my rear has been squared off slightly. I guess I need to just clean the thing regularly! I’m slack with that as well.

While I have been out riding I’ve managed to take some snaps here and there so I thought I’d share these to give the blog a bit of colour on this dreary January day.

Nice little spot overlooking the Solent Estuary, near Lepe.
A little trip past Saints training ground.
A trip out on the nobbly tyres! Fawley inclosure.
A moody winter sunset out on the forest.
Autumnal scenes in Beaulieu
A mild winter’s day at Eling Harbour.
Tides out. Another shot of the Solent Estuary.
Beaulieu. Before the winter started to take hold.
There are some hills in the forest you know!
A cold and icey but fast bend near Brock.
