Blasting off the cobwebs

Posted in Fixed Gear Bikes by Richard on January 24, 2010

I’ve been dying to get back out into the countryside and do a half decent number of miles for what seems like ages now, especially as we’ve booked flights to Barcelona at the end of March to blast about on the bikes.  So with the snow finally gone (from the roads anyway) we hopped on the train to Corbridge yesterday and peddled back to Newcastle, and worked up a hunger for a pit stop at Bread Point for some meaty buns.

And then the sun appeared…

The weather over the last few weeks has been pretty bleak, I’m sure you’ll all agree.  But Old Man Winter seemed to bugger off for a few hours yesterday (probably down the bookies), it was possible to ride without a coat, beanie and 2 pairs of socks, and more importantly without the constant threat of smashing your face on the road.  So what else was I going to be doing other than this?

Finally got to go snowboarding yesterday – first time since Austria last Feb, which is way too long.  I’ve been harping on about a trip up to Yad Moss to go and ride ever since the flakes started to fall.  I’d wanted to go during the week, when it would be quieter, but seeing as my friends have proper jobs unlike myself, it just wasn’t possible.  So in the early hours of the morning Danny, Lee and I set off for our first runs of the season.

Snowy Days

I love the snow, especially when there is loads like at present.  Unfortunately I live in what is a really flat area in my opinion – compared to my hometown anyway so I can’t just step outside and go snowboarding like I used to do.  So instead I have to make do with taking photos, which is still fun to be honest.

Went for a quick walk to the local graveyard yesterday.
