PM rain

Sheep posing on Fairlie moor

Yesterday I filled a wet afternoon doing bike maintenance, chain, cassette, pedals and rear disc pads. There is something strange going on with the rear wheel hydraulics the lever goes almost full in all of a sudden then recovers for a while then does it again. When I changed the pads there wasn't much wear so I made sure I set them up central to the rear disc. I suspect though that the problem will come back and my favourite bike shop will need to take a look, however its fixed for now. There was a little bit of chain suck on the small ring but a bit of bodging with a file improved things enough for me to risk riding with it.

Today AM was bright and breezy Anne and I headed out for a walk West Kilbride to Fairlie along the hillside with a great outlook over the Clyde Estuary to Cumbrae, Bute and Arran. It takes just over 2 hours to walk and 4 minutes back on the train. We sometimes get a free ride if the ticket chap is a bit slow, not today though he caught us just seconds before we got off. I like to think I'm an honest chap but I can't help feeling pleased when the ticket man fails to catch me.

If you've missed the view there's an easy cure, well maybe not so easy on the bike.
