Hot and Sandy

Travel writing, pictures and stuff for people I know. Quite a lot of cycling talk, and some semi-controlled ranting. Hiking, outdoor and two-wheeled stuff, perhaps a little computing when it's worth talking about. Meandering thoughts.

Tuesday, October 10


Again, I have to praise the mudguards. In the last 24 hours they have saved me from two soakings. As I may have mentioned, my ancient SKS track pump broke the other week. Its replacement arrived this morning, a fantastic Park PFP3. I was practically floating in, the rolling resistance of 90psi tyres a distant memory. It was a piece of cake to get my 28mm Vittoria's to 125psi, although the strange bit of chrome trim on the pump handle is slightly irritating. Resplendent in blue, the pump will live on the *inside* of our front door, unlike its predecessor which was consigned to the porch. More when I'm less frantic at work.
