Fantastic weather the other evening. Shorts and short sleeves until past nine o’clock, dry and dusty underwheel, the only negative was a puncture on the final descent. It happened on one of the new waterbars that the National Trust has installed with special razor-sharp edges on them. Still, it sealed itself in a minute or two and the ride was brilliant otherwise. I think it’s time to put the summer tyres back on the Soul and maybe move the singlespeed to the back of the pile of bikes. It has served me well through winter, but I’m looking forward to some drier, warmer riding for the next few months.
