…..My bike gave to me….6 P U N C T U R E S
Ok, it’s not Christmas and it wasnt just one bike that caused me some woes this week, but you get the idea.
On Tuesday alone I racked up 3 punctures, Thursday night I was a mile from home on my SS and I got a puncture, so I decided to pick up the bike and jog, I’d had enough of inner-tube changing at the road side and its been while since I last jogged.
I made the cardinal school boy error once I was home, I changed the tube and blew it up WITHOUT checking the tyre…PSSSSSSSSST…..ARGH…..then I spent 10 mins checking the tyre and there was nothing in it, that I could find anyway…..ohhh the joys :)….Would’nt change it for the world !
The only bike that didn’t give me a puncture was my MTB :)
My Olympic Dream, Picked up by the media:
This week I had a couple of photo shoots and , by the end of the week, had hit at least 4 newspapers (3 national ones)
The articles are pretty much as you would expect really, there are a few anomalies but on the whole its good and lets just hope that it helps in some way with my “Olympic Dream”
hopefully next week, I will have some good news in regards to an award im listed for and a race that I might be taking part in, so stay tuned.
If you a book publisher reading this, then get in touch, if I get to carry this torch, what a final chapter in the awesome story it will be to write and publish !
Thanks to Paul over on Fat Cyclist and the articles that hit the web, we have had around 7000 extra visitors in the last 2/3 days, so, I thought, as opposed to them having to go through all the site, that I’d make a video to sums things up with regard to me and my journey….As always, turn your sound on !
