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.

Weather and Travel

After an Alan Partridge week staying in a hotel, I'm glad to be home.  Unfortunately my car needs fixing, my bike needs the new shock I have fitting and the other one needs an exhaust.  Ouch.  Credit crunch indeed.  

As for the cycling, I think perhaps it's time to spend some money on the Pompino.  For one I want to refresh the drive train (new cog, chainring and decent quality chain).  But I also want to lower teh gearing slightly to account for the cold weather and slower club runs.  While I'm at it I'll give it a clean, possibly a new bottom bracket and certainly a new pair of tyres - the ones on it have been absolutely brilliant, but the front (ex-back) one is bald and the rear (ex-front) one has a worrying sidewall bulge.  Hmm.  

Will hit the web with some pics when I've done it.
