I went to go pick some friends up from Valence and so used that as an excuse to go ride one of my favourite trails.
Here’s a mini-movie I made of the trip:
Today I made myself a little gadget which charges USB devices (iPod, Camera, Phone etc…) from normal AA batteries.
I bought a kit from a website in the states and then today, for the first time since CDT in school (20 years ago!), I had a pop soldering some electronics!
After dropping Nikki and Amelie off in Valence (they’re back in the UK for a week) I drove down to the Ardeche Gorge for another chance to use testing out kit as an excuse to get out into the hills and have a little fun!
Here, for the wordily-challenged among you is a little movie I made of this trip:
I’ve long harboured the man-dream of having somewhere bike-specific in which to store my bikes with a counter-top and storage space for my parts in which I could while away the hours fettling.
I was recently allocated a tiny alcove and told to tidy away my bikes (as apparently them being strewn around the house isn’t ‘on’) and so I set to work designing a miniature bike-den.
