    how much rain are we having lately......never mind.

    half day at work today, so wanted to get out in the mild damp day regardless of the weather.


    swapped my saddle and decided to visit the town moor, sort of a countryside within a city place, popular with joggers and cows and the like, but also the site for the annual huge hoppings fair comes once a year.....currently sat idle due to the boggy ground.

    moonlander loved it though, climbed the steep cow hills and took some nice shots, and re tracing my route through town back to the quayside, the tall ship training vessel was on its way out to sea...

    been enjoying the bike along with beers and food and a generally nice relaxing weekend off work for a change.

    managed to drag my drinking partner out for a ride in the rain today!

    usual 15 mile loop along the quayside in showers, then a diversion back to the hoppings fair, that is now a complete mudbath....sadly the security stopped me riding the moonlander around, so i stopped for a sausage and fresh donuts!

    Tomorrow sees my last commute before I. Move house so I decided to do it on the Pugsley. 12.5 miles across London.

    Hopefully I'll get some pictures.

    Well that was interesting, 32x20 is not a good urban gear but only about 2mph slower than my road bike.

    Conversation with a guy on a road at the lights

    "Don't you get a lot of drag with those tyres?"

    "No I pump them up really hard, say 15psi and they roll fine"

    "15? Don't you mean 115?"

    "No 15"

    And a picture:

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately after a "that" incident I'm not allowed to ride down the stairs any more Still think that the corgi shouldn't have been there

    well, after yesterdays flood adventures i decided to spend a little time today going to parts of my local area to see what damage was done.

    debris was everywhere, abandoned cars, mudslides and things like that, no water about though...

    some tarmac paths were unridable, check this out, usually its a dusty track, the moonlander would cruise along, but today i almost ended on my ass!





















    wasnt expecting that amount of mud, but couldnt really turn back without ruining the ride.

    Cool. Add a MG42 (airsoft) or Supersoaker on a pintle-mount and you would be set.

    Finally broke the 1,000 mile mark in under 6 months of fun with the moonlander....just a couple of small rides this week due to work and poor weather...





    probably do another 1,000 before the years out!

    the fat bmx thread reminded me of this little gem that I found on another forum. Sadly never saw a finished build posted. 3" kenda rubber

    it's kinda stuck in my head
