Road Ride From Robs – 23rd July

An accidental shot of the road. I just liked it!

With the trails probably still drying out I headed over to Rob’s in Bulkington and went out on the road.

We ended up combining two of his usual loops, but ridden at a slower pace than he’d normally ride them (as I couldn’t keep up!) This road riding lark isn’t as easy as it looks, he was even on his commuter bike not his full blown race bike.

I tried leading for a while up the Wolvey straight… oh my god, when you’ve the one cutting the hole in the air the extra effort required is amazing.

During a rest stop he had a look at the way the bike is set up and suggested several tweaks that might help. I rode his bike and the whole bars area just felt loads more comfortable than mine. There’s some playing about with bar and brake position required.

There’s too much road bike riding at the moment. 🙂

I’m going to take the Mukluk out tomorrow evening, so will be going from a tyre 7/8″ wide to one 3. 7/8″ wide!
