Base club today was very similar to last week: out to clevedon, along the flats, over the mendips and back home. it was a fixed wheel blast without the heinous blusteriness of the last few days, and everyone riding well. apart from me – i’ve ridden a lot this week so was having trouble with lactic acid in my leg muscles, I seemed to be operating at a much lower threshold than normal. it’s time for a rest day, perhaps today should have been the rest day, not that it makes a lot of odds.
belle bought her new bike. it’s a trek lexa, and it’s very nice. a full review will follow, based on her comments. i am not going to attempt to ride it, it’s rather small. she got it from strada cycles in bedminster. i cannot recommend these chaps highly enough; support your local bike shop!
elsewhere, i saw a cat attack and kill a rat. it was a spectacular demonstration of the savagery of life in bedminster.
