Another road ride today. It had been decided that Vikki would come over to mine and we would have a quick look at her gears to see if we could stop her chain tying itself in knots like it dod on sunday. Anyway 10minutes of playing with it in the workstand and it seemed much improved so we headed off to Manchester to meet Anna. Every light seemed to be on red for us, even pedestrian crossings??? But we arrived at the Velodrome just in time and we all headed off to Dunham Massey. On the way we passed Bicycle Doctor so we poped in for a quick chat about new wheels for the mountain bikes for transwales and for Vikki to get something that will stop her chain getting so managled if it does come off. The weather was perfect and reaching the country lanes I felt like I could have just continued cycling. Lots of nice food at lunch, in fact I think I over-estimated the size of my stomach! Then we headed back to Bolton, via Evans for some more retail therapy - I don't think it is a good idea for me and Vikki to go into a bike shop together.
