Yesterday I descended from the bright and sunny Alps in order to do two things:
1. Drop Nikki and Amelie off at the train station in Chambery for their week back in blighty.
2. To head out for a day/night/day in the hills to tick off my February Bivi trip (yes, I’d left it a little late!).
Yesterday I took my new road bike (well, new to me – 2nd hand frame and forks with all of the old bits swapped over from my previous road bike) out for it’s maiden voyage.
Sure, it’d been used on the turbo-trainer a few times in various states during it’s build (no brakes, no bar tape etc…) but as I put the finishing touches to it on Friday night I had something a little special (daft) in mind for it come Saturday morning.
