Winter Training - Oh what fun!

Tuesday 25th

It started a dry evening on Tuesday night but as soon as the bunch headed off the rain came down. Ten riders turned up for the Lighted Run but it was more of a night of attrition as very soon we were loosing riders. Homer dropped out due to a duff tyre and then on they way through Gourock, Stuart shot off the front and was never seen again, we rekon he must have been rushing to get back for EastEnders.

I looked around on the way up to Port Glasgow and we were now down to five riders. Then there was a shout from the back, John Northey has a puncture. So there we were, five of us standing at the roadside, pissing down with rain with John holding his inner tube us four gathered around him. No tools, no spare tube, no nothing, that's why John goes so fast, we all carry a shit load of tools just in case of sod's law, he doesn't.

So we are standing there trying to work out how this patch Shug has works and why it won't stick to the inner tube using cold numb fingers, when John says, 'aw you should use these patchs called leeches, I use them all the time, there great!' The rather swift reply was 'then why didn't you bloody bring any!' To cap it off we ended up stuffing a 700 inner tube into his mountain bike tyre to get him home.

Ah winter training, oh what fun.....oh really!!
