I had hoped for a better end to the month than I got. My 900 lumen lights arrived from Dealextreme and I was instantly wowed by their brightness and throw. The new forks had made a massive difference to the way the bike rides and the resulting first ride with the new forks / lights ended up with me cycling all the way up to Ding Quarry without stopping.
I tried to replicate it two nights later – My DX lights were dead, so were my legs. The ride wasn’t great, but my average speed on my usual quick loop has now popped above 7mph for the first time. If I can knock 5 minutes off then I can get upto 8mph.
I did hope to get some final rides in this week, but this happened.. Don’t look if you’re squeemish…
I got tonsillitis. so the end of the month has been reached, and I have only managed 24 miles this month. I’m looking forward to some good rides in December, now that the batteries are recharged in my TRUSTY 200 lumen lights!
