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
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.
