a mighty fine day

It was Thea and Martin who had raved about it.

A 47 km cycle with 1200m height gain on some superb single track.

To get one puncture is unfortunate.

To get two punctures is careless.

Possibly some of the best downhill single track that either of us have cycled on.

And with amazing views, you (nearly) forgot about the hike a bike sections.

However, to get three punctures is just bad luck.  Especially when you only have enough repair kits for 2.

So, as Di enjoyed 5 km's of perfect downhill riding, Derek become very grateful for having a very light bike.

Derek is now buying a new pump, a new repair kit and 2 new spare inner tubes.
