With a clear head for the first time in a week, it was time to hit the roads again. As I said yesterday, the Challenge is shot, but I should still try and ride as much as possible given that I have the next week off work.
Sitting in the shed, just waiting to be put to good use was 2 new Conti Gatorskin tyres and the “Kermit” cassette.
The bike came with an 11-25 cassette when it was new, but my kermit legs were finding it hard to push over the bigger hills. So I swallowed my pride and grabbed the 11-28 from Wiggle as well as the new tyres.
The last cassette change I did was a nightmare, so I was a little nervous about this time. But, with the right tools and the last debacle behind me, it was all done in about 3 minutes. Whoohoo. So off I went, under grey skies and above wet slippery roads.
