Well the weather was so good on Wednesday that I just had to take a ride out along the coast.
For the first time this year though I did it on the man powered bike - My Cannondale Synapse.

Had a great day with fantastic views. Normally when I've done the route I tend to ride around the road at the end .... this time I decided to go up the blooming hill as well!!! Tough BUT fun

My legs ache a bit now!

Sadly my synapse sits unloved in the garage. Havent been out on it since August last year and that was painful enough.

That sounds like the sort of condition that could prevent you riding one

:)) I'd never seen one till now, must take some serious input to hit 20mph! Won't be cruising along at 25 to 30mph on that! :))

I remember tyres like that on a bike I had once.


Big fat white ones...

:thumright:

They are good fun off road. They pretty much steam roller everything. Takes some getting used to though, those fat tyres dance around under you. But disconcerting at first.

Big thing at the moment. Tempted by one but can't afford one worth having.

Paid £750 for mine as my 50th birthday present. Sadly the knees went at 53 hence the lack of riding. Probably only get £200 for it now.
