So. I have ordered a new mountainbike on the “Ride2Work scheme” an excellent process invented by the government to encourage more people to cycle between places, specifically to and from work.

There’s no VAT charged on it and all the payments come out of your gross salary automatically over the next 12 months, ie pre-tax. It’s better than half price.

As an added bonus I will also sell my OLD bike (which I also purchased on the scheme 5 years ago) to further offset that price. Brilliant!

Now I just need it to arrive so I can get some rides in before The Oktoberfest. I mean the only thing worse than being slow is being slow on a brand new bike……

Yes so between this getting posted at 10AM and now (9PM) I have decided to forget the idea of a full-sus bike. That’s because I have ridden a 15” (yes, small!) rockhopper, which is almost as chuckable as a BMX.

So I changed the picture from a Specialized Camber Comp to a Specialized Rockhopper Pro. Hardtail for me.
