Marginal Thinking

Well, it's been a few weeks. Not really a huge break from cycling, because Number One Son actually quite likes cycling. Okay, not in a Tour de France/Brad Wiggins sort of way, but able to handle 50mile/80km plus rides on the Schuylkill Trail, around Manhattan and more ...

I only managed one out and out roadie type ride; Chris's farewell from the bike shop. Seventy or so riders headed out into the Sourlands to bid adieu to Halter's popular superwrench. Very nice it was too. Thank you  to whoever's voice it was which piped up from behind me on the climb over the ridge, "C'mon Wiggins!!!".

I would like to emphasise that, 1: the voice came from behind, and 2: my patriotic jersey is one I would never wear in a million years in the UK.

Good luck Chris - with me on the correct side of the road
So, here I am, back in the groove ... Speaking of which ... well, more thoughts another time ...

The Bloke Rides again

It seems a long time since my last blog posting. Not that a lot hasn't happened, or a lot of rides been done. But just one damn ride after another doesn't make for an inspiring blog, especially when all this British Bloke wants to do is pontificate about stuff in general.

Rainbow Hill Road Bridge, Montgomery, NJ, USA - 17.9.2012
So in future I'll be logging regular rides via Twitter. Follow my tweets should you want ride details.
