HTN 1.5 Preview Ride

Saturday saw the preview ride for Hit The North 1.5.

A number of riders met at the car park near the venue for a quick lap or two around the course.

I soon discovered it was slightly less flat than i’d expected and was quickly at the back for the climbs.

I was quite pleased with my progress, but disaster struck in the form of a mashed rear mech and hanger, resulting in lack of gears and a very slippy chain. So I decided the best thing to do was to sit out the rest of the lap, a huge disappointment, but at least I have an idea of what to expect for race day.

Action Plan –

Order Rear Mech – Shimano SLX Shadow – Done

Order Shifters      – Shimano LX 580 2-Way – Done

Get Fit!!

The parts should arrive tomorrow so hopefully the training can start in ernest and I can hope to complete a number of laps in Feb.
