Things I had forgotten about in my exclusively road riding of the past few months include;
1. Nettles sting
2. I still lack confidence on descents
3. Riding up hill off road can result in a feeling that your lungs are about to pop out of your mouth
4. A mile off road is much slower than a mile on road, especially when you have a propensity to get lost.
5. Cider, even free cider tastes just the same as when I was 15 years old.
Hopefully some reviews will be coming up in the next few weeks so watch this space. Not that anyone reads this, if you want to prove me wrong send me some socks*!
*If you really did want to send me some socks or anything else bike related for that matter that I can use, probably destroy and then comment upon, send them to Ben, Spa Cycles, 48a Camwal Road, Harrogate, HG1 4PT
